Rosacea are dilated veins in the face and although rosacea isn’t harmful many people are bothered by the disfiguring look of it and sometimes an unpleasant feeling can occur.
What causes Rosacea?
Rosacea is often genetically determined and is therefor difficult to avoid. Exposure to the sun, smoking, alcohol, coffee and black tea and spicy food can worsen the condition.
How does Beauté Totale treat rosacea?
We use pulsed laser light of 540 nanometers or 1064 nanometers. During an intake interview we will determine your subtype and decide what the best method of treatment is.
Beauté Total uses the Alma Harmony XL Laser. This is an extremely safe and effective way to remove rosacea in your face.
Is the treatment safe?
Extremely safe. During treatment the surrounding tissue remains undamaged. The equipment has been tested and has been*- FDA approved for a long time.
How many treatments are needed?
Usually 2 treatments already provide a substantial improvement. Sometimes 3 to 5 sessions are required. Depending on the severity.
Is the rosacea permanently gone?
Any rosacea will be gone, but the genetic predisposition remains. Over time, therefore, new capillaries arise. You can strengthen your skin with proper care and we also have equipment that strengthens your skin. Firm skin prevents new veins. Ask for the possibilities.
How does the skin react to treatment?
Immediately after a treatment your skin can be red and irritated, like a sunburn. This can be cooled. The sunburnt feeling dissapears after a few hours. Sometimes swelling or scabs can occur. After 7 to 10 days it will disappear. In most cases, the veins are darker after treatment. This is a good sign. This indicates that the veins are damaged and will soon disappear. You are allowed to camouflage with make up.
Are there possible complications?
This is extremely unusual. If you suffer from acne or cold sores a treatment can sometimes cause a flare up.
