Rosacea is a common but poorly understood disorder of the facial skin that is estimated to affect well over 16 million Americans. Physiological symptoms of rosacea include:
Because of its red-faced, acne-like effects on personal appearance, rosacea can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems if left untreated. Fortunately, dermatological intervention can typically control the symptoms of this potentially life-disruptive disorder.* Prescription creams and medications can lessen symptoms and improve the appearance of the skin.* Office based laser treatments can also reduce redness and improve the appearance of blood vessels associated with this condition.* Multiple treatments are required, which require little or no recovery time.*
Vbeam is the latest gentle, but effective treatment option that can reduce or even erase red discoloration, small vessels, and scar tissue to reveal clear, vibrant skin.*
Vbeam is a non-ablative, pulsed dye laser that penetrates the skin in pulses as a dye is used to achieve different colors of laser beams, depending on the skin condition being treated. The Vbeam also leaves the top layers of the skin alone, while treating deeper levels of the skin where pigmentation and problem issues reside.* Since the top layers of skin are not cut or burnt, the treatment has little to no side effects and does not require lengthy recovery time like previous traditional cosmetic dermatology treatments.*
