Treat facial redness with IPL to restore your natural complexion


Rosacea can be hard to spot at first, especially in darker skin tones, but it starts to show itself through increasing redness of the skin, most commonly the face.

This flushed appearance can quickly progress which makes early diagnosis and treatment very important to halt the progress of the skin condition before it leads to worse symptoms.

What are the symptoms of rosacea?

As rosacea progresses from a flushed appearance on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead it can start to cause small blood vessels and tiny pimples to appear on and around the reddened areas. The symptoms of rosacea are not exclusive to appearance however, it can also produce a burning or stinging sensation on the skin and in more severe cases, it's possible to experience swelling, patchiness and thickened skin too.

While the cause of rosacea is unknown and there is no cure, there is treatment available that can control the symptoms of this disorder and prevent it from getting worse.

At MBA Skin, we use IPL to significantly lessen the appearance of facial redness with 3-6 treatments over a 4-6 month period. Many of our patients are so delighted with the improvement that they opt to return once a year for a top-up treatment to prevent any deterioration.

Treating Rosacea with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL treatments are popular for overall skin rejuvenation but they are also highly effective at targeting skin concerns such as rosacea.

At MBA Skin, we use the leading IPL technology for our patients - the Lumenis M22 platform and Lumenis One. Our approach to treating rosacea was developed by Dr Peter Crouch for specific use with the devices we use in our clinics, it uses a triple pulse triple filter and multiple pass technique.

The process involves three separate exposures of the patient's skin to Intense Pulsed Light - each time the treatment head is rotated 90 degrees. The intention is to even out the delivery of IPL energy by off-setting each pass relative to the one before. The change of filters between each pass is intended to deliver energy at varying levels in the skin (and so to target vessels of varying diameter and at varying depth). By using multiple passes, using moderate energy levels, we hope to successfully treat as many vessels as possible whilst minimising the risk of thermal damage to the skin.
