Improve Rosacea-Related Redness with IPL Therapy at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Intense pulsed light therapy, or IPL, is a non-invasive procedure that uses the power of broadband light to stimulate healing and rejuvenation within the skin. This procedure is clinically effective and proven to be gentle and safe for use. This treatment is a great way for patients to address discoloration, minor wrinkles and fine lines, spider veins, and broken capillaries without the risk of extended downtime.
At North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics, we’re proud to perform all of our IPL treatments with the latest and greatest in intense pulsed light technology — the Palomar Icon™ IPL system. In fact, our practice is a nationally recognized training center for this cutting-edge technology.
How Can IPL Therapy Improve the Appearance of Red Blood Vessels and Rosacea?
IPL therapy is particularly useful for treating red blood vessels and rosacea because it targets hemoglobin, a major component of red blood cells. Any structures in the treatment area that contain hemoglobin absorb the light emitted by the therapy. As these structures absorb the light, they begin to rupture and are eventually reabsorbed by the body. This treatment can also be used to address excessive redness not related to rosacea.
While IPL therapy cannot cure rosacea, it can dramatically improve the frequency and severity of the flare-ups that patients experience. This can do a great deal of psychological good for individuals suffering from rosacea, improving their confidence and empowering them to lead active, happy lives.
