IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment For Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which principally affects the face. Unlike a temporary flush, the redness remains for extended periods of time and if left untreated, could become more persistent and pronounced.

Some of the signs of rosacea include:

  • Uncontrollable blushing or flushing
  • Persistent redness (similar to a sunburn)
  • Raised bumps or pimples with accompanied stinging or burning
  • Visible blood vessels
  • Thickening of the skin
  • Bloodshot eyes

Because this condition affects everyone differently, it’s important to work with your dermatologist to find the right rosacea skin treatment for your particular symptoms.

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we offer advanced IPL photorejuvenation, a painless and long-term rosacea skin treatment solution for the clear and beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.

How Does IPL Photorejuvenation Skin Treatment Work?

IPL photorejuvenation is a non-invasive and non-ablative skin treatment that uses high intensity pulses of light to improve the appearance of the skin.

There are a number of benefits associated with this rosacea skin treatment including:

  • Elimination of facial redness
  • Reduction of bumps and pimples
  • Elimination of visible blood vessels
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Minimally-invasive & painless
  • Requires no downtime
How it works

This rosacea skin treatment device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the haemoglobin in your blood vessels.

This controlled injury triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue, replacing the problem area with new cells and clearer, better looking skin

How long is the treatment?

The duration of this rosacea skin treatment depends on the size and location of the treatment area. Typically, one IPL photorejuvenation treatment will take approximately 30-90 minutes.

How many IPL treatments will I need?

You will be able to see some improvement in your appearance after just one skin treatment. However, a series of 3-5 treatments will help you fully achieve your desired results

Does IPL Photorejuvenation have any side effects?

Most patients can return to work immediately after this rosacea skin treatment. However, you may experience some temporary side effects such as:

  • Stinging sensation (similar to a sunburn)
  • Slight facial pinkness and soreness
  • Bruising
  • Skin pigmentation


Customized Rosacea Skin Treatments


At our Kelowna skin clinic, we understand that every patient’s skin, concerns and aesthetic goals are unique.

That is why we use VISIA Digital Analysis to develop a customized skin treatment plan to get to the root of the rosacea and effectively diminish redness, broken blood vessels and facial bumps.

This new form of technology provides an in-depth evaluation of a patient's skin and has many benefits including:

  • Helps determine the most suitable products and rosacea treatment plans designed specifically for your skin
  • Highlights problems beneath the skin that may be undetectable by the human eye
  • Easily captures high quality facial images
  • Allows your skin care specialist to monitor your treatment progress
  • Can help determine whether any adjustments should be made to your treatment for long-lasting, optimum results

Since each patient experiences a unique case of rosacea, we have a wide range of rosacea skin treatment options to help minimize your symptoms and return the healthy, beautiful glow to your skin.
