Rosacea Treatments Oxfordshire
Rosacea is commonly known as a skin condition that causes flushing on the face and other areas. Many sufferers feel self-conscious when they have a flare up. Although rosacea is very rarely dangerous – it does cause sufferers low self-esteem. Many treatments option are now available for rosacea, and one of the more common ones is laser treatment. Laser treatment for rosacea is incredibly effective and works similarly to laser acne treatments. One of the main benefits of laser rosacea treatments is that the laser used only targets the area that is affected and does not harm the surrounding skin.

How does rosacea treatment Oxfordshire work?
For rosacea, a series of laser treatments can be used to clear up the affected area. Laser treatments use a form of pulsated light. Like with laser tattoo removal, laser rosacea treatment uses short bursts of light rather than one consistent stream. The surface veins that create rosacea are destroyed by the pulsated light of the laser. This encourages new and clean skin growth which in turn gets rid of the redness caused by rosacea. The required number of treatments required will depend on the severity of the rosacea in the patient.
What is the after care?
As with all laser treatments, the main after care is 24 hours after you have had each treatment. Once your treatment is finished, you will be able to carry on as normal. Because the laser treatment creates a superficial wound on the skin, there are a few things you may consider doing within the first 24 hours. You may wish to use a cold compress to reduce superficial swelling. It is the best practice to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment also. The main thing you will need to discuss after your treatment has ended when you will be able to go out in the sun again.
If you are planning a holiday close to your treatment, you will need to talk to your clinician before you start as the sun can have a detrimental effect on this sensitive area of skin for a couple of weeks after the treatment has been completed.
