Laser Rosacea Treatment

Symptoms of rosacea can leave your face looking flushed or leave embarrassing red patches on the face. While there are many medications available for rosacea, more severe symptoms may not respond to medication. Laser treatments can be used in conjunction with other rosacea treatments or can provide an alternative to those who have stubborn redness which does not subside with medication, and the professionals at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery in Charlotte, NC are trained in the latest laser technology to treat rosacea.

Treating Redness with Laser Technology in Charlotte, NC

Laser treatments are administered by directing light energy into the skin in the affected areas. The light device targets the small blood vessels responsible for the redness. The energy forces the blood vessels to retract and collapse, reducing the number of blood vessels close to the skin’s surface, which is behind the flushed look of rosacea. The treatment is non-invasive and side effects are minimal. Most patients only feel minor discomfort during the procedure and can resume normal activities right away. Each treatment is approximately 30 minutes or less, and many patients start to see results after the first treatment. Additional treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of rosacea symptoms.

Are You a Good Candidate for Laser Rosacea Treatment?

Laser treatments are appealing because they are non-surgical and have less downtime and fewer side effects than some more invasive plastic surgeries. There are still important risk factors, so if you’re interested in laser rosacea treatments, let your physician know if you have:

  • Mild to severe rosacea symptoms
  • Any other medical conditions or take prescription medications
  • Recently had any other skin treatments or if you scar easily
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Blood-clotting disorder

Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should not undergo laser treatments. Always go over your medical history with your plastic surgeon to ensure the best results and avoid any complications.

Our facility focuses on personalized service to deliver high-quality results, and we are experienced in treating rosacea symptoms. Contact Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery in Charlotte, NC to schedule a consultation and see if you are a good candidate for laser rosacea treatment.
