Say Goodbye To Rosacea

Kelowna Rosacea Skin Treatment

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition which principally affects the cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to:

  • Visible blood vessels
  • Pus-filled bumps or pimples
  • Watery/bloodshot eyes
  • Dry/flaky skin
  • Stinging skin
  • Persistent facial redness

While there is currently no cure for rosacea, there are a number of skin treatments available to restore the vitality and health of your skin.

Rosacea Skin Treatment Options

The progression of rosacea symptoms can be halted and managed through identification and avoidance of triggers combined with gentle rosacea skin care and laser treatments.

It is very important to consult a skin-care specialist to gain a better understanding of your rosacea triggers and develop a personalized rosacea skin treatment plan for healthier, more beautiful skin.

Avoiding Rosacea Triggers

The following list covers some of the most common rosacea triggers for the majority of patients. To avoid any flare-ups and manage your condition, it is best to keep away from:

  • Extreme temperatures: This can include saunas, hot baths and other very warm environments.
  • Emotional triggers: Try to avoid any situations that may cause you stress or anxiety.
  • Certain beverages: Drinks known to trigger rosacea flare-ups include alcohol and hot drinks.
  • Skin care products: It is best to avoid any alcohol-based cosmetics as well as acetone substances.

V-Beam Rosacea Skin Treatment

V-beam is a pulse dye laser used to minimize overall facial redness associated with rosacea. Using an innovative laser technology, V-Beam combines longer pulse durations with cryogen cooling for rosacea skin treatments that are safer, less painful and more effective.

How does V-Beam Laser Treatment Work?

The pulse dye laser delivers a short burst of light into the skin that will be absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the epidermis.

These blood vessels will then coagulate & be reabsorbed by the body during the healing process.

How many skin treatments do I need?

Patients typically require 3-5 treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

How long do the results last?

While the longevity of the treatment depends on each individual patient, results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Follow-up treatments 1-2 times a year may be needed to maintain results.

How long do the results last?

V-Beam laser treatment is safe for all skin types and ages. The technology uses a cool spray before each laser pulse to protect your skin and maximize comfort during treatment.
