Rosacea is characterised by the visible dilation of the small, superficial veins (capillaries) on the face.
It generally develops around the nose, on the cheeks and on the chin, most often on pale, sensitive skin.
It is often confused with erythrosis, which is a “background” redness without any visible blood vessels.
We only treat rosacea with our Nd Yag lasers, preferably during periods of limited sun exposure, in one or two sessions spaced one to two months apart. Our qualified laser practitioners perform these treatments in our practice.
The after-effects are usually mild, just a touch of post-laser redness for a few days, perhaps even some small scabs, but these are only temporary providing you do not expose your skin to ultraviolet rays in the month after each treatment.
The fee charged for this type of laser treatment depends on the extent of the rosacea, but usually starts at 100 euros per session.
