IPL Laser, KTP Laser and Topical Treatments
IPL laser treatment can be a simple and effective solution for rosacea. IPL stands for “intense pulsed light.” There is minimal discomfort and no downtime. While the skin typically clears within 1 session, a series of 3 sessions may be desired to thoroughly eradicate the redness associated with rosacea.
While individual results may vary, patients may also experience other benefits from IPL phototherapy, such as tightening of sagging or wrinkled skin, and collagen stimulation.
KTP laser targets larger, more visible vessels, and can be used alone or in combination with IPL to help create a more even skin tone overall. KTP is used to treat many causes of redness on the face, including blood vessels, rosacea and post-inflammatory erythema (the redness left behind after acne.) The KTP laser targets hemoglobin within the red blood cells on the skin, thereby eliminating tiny blood vessels without damage to the surrounding skin. The energy of the KTP laser causes the blood vessels just below the skin’s surface to collapse. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime after the treatments. Some improvement is seen directly after the treatment and improvement continues over the following days.
The De Pieri Clinic carries a specific rosacea skincare kit that couples at-home skincare with in-clinic facial treatments to keep symptoms at bay.
