Rosacea is a chronic disease and is considered as adult acne. The main feature of the disease is hypersensitive skin which does not allow the application of any cream or soap. This sensitivity is manifested by the appearance of a diffuse redness centrally on the face, the presence of the red papules of acne and the dilation of the superficial vessels of the face called spider veins.
Until now, the treatment of rosacea was done topically with creams such as azelaic acid, tretinoin derivatives, metronidazole, while in more severe forms of the disease antibiotics are administered such as tetracycline.
The laser that we use in the Derma Hair clinic is called Ellipse by Nordlys – Candela and has amazing results in reducing redness, papules and spider veins of the disease.
The treatment with this laser has no side effects and the beam of light targets the hemoglobin located within the small vessels of the face. The laser head emits at a wavelength of 530 to 750 nm, which is the wavelength at which haemoglobin is at its maximum absorption.
