Of all the reasons that cause us to blush, rosacea may be the least appreciated. A common skin disorder affecting the face, rosacea is characterized by persistent redness and dilated vessels over the nose, cheeks and chin and in some cases facial inflammation.
Generally affecting adults between the ages of 30 to 50, the condition is more prevalent in individuals with fair skin and in women. It is often aggravated by sun exposure, temperature extremes, stress and anxiety.
Through a range of in office treatments and medical grade skincare, we can help restore your skin’s natural balance and help you rediscover your confidence:
Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser uses the Long Pulse (LP pulsation) setting to target red, purple, and violet pigmentation in the blood vessels of the skin by delivering controlled laser energy to coagulate them, thus reducing them in size and intensity.
Uses broad band light (BBL) energy to target pigmented cells such as rosacea
Broken capillaries are tiny vessels just beneath the skin’s surface that become dilated or more prominent. Blood that normally flows out of these vessels may pool and remain, resulting in small clusters of unsightly tiny capillaries that appear red or blue beneath the skin. These veins become more visible with age as the skin becomes thinner and the elasticity of your blood vessels decrease.

Laser light therapies such as Varilite KTP are often the treatment of choice for superficial dilated capillaries and spider veins on the face, neck and body.
Quick and effective- vascular lasers treat work by emitting a specific wavelength that is absorbed by the hemoglobin contained in red blood cells. The laser energy heats the abnormal vessels until they are removed, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. Over time – usually, in four to six weeks after treatment – the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
Depending on the number, color and size of the veins being treated, more than one session may be required to achieve an optimal outcome.
