Rosacea is a chronic and persistent skin disorder causing redness on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. It tends to affect people who blush easily or who have fair skin.
Rosacea usually flares up when something causes the blood vessels in the face to expand causing broken capillaries and flushed redness. Some triggers include stress, sun and wind exposure, exercise, hot weather, hot baths, alcohol, and spicy foods.
Our aim at Dr Saras & Co is to constrict dilated vessels, reduce redness and remove broken capillaries for our patients with rosacea or other skin conditions in the Sydney area.
• Small red lines beneath the skin due to the thickening of blood vessels.
• Redness on the face, particularly the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
• Pus-filled acne pimples or hard raised lesions develop on the reddened skin.
• Irritation in the eyes causing stinging, burning, watery eyes and sensitivity to light.
One of the most significant advancements in the treatment of rosacea and other skin issues has been the use of state-of-the-art laser technology.
Here at Dr Saras & Co, we use a blend of treatments including IPL, BBL, 3D Rejuvenation and Red Vessel Removal to treat rosacea and other skin conditions.
IPL constricts tiny vessels causing flushed skin and improves the appearance of the skin by removing pigmentation, age spots, sun spots, freckles, broken capillaries and rosacea, quickly and effectively.
IPL can also minimise the following symptoms:
• Pustular lesions
• Facial erythema
IPL is an advanced laser treatment that is able to pinpoint affected areas without damaging the surrounding skin. The procedure is well tolerated by patients and there is minimal discomfort. You may experience a slight stinging sensation, but a topic gel may be applied to enhance patient comfort. Each session lasts around 30 minutes.
BBL treatment acts to destroy the blood vessels that are causing rosacea on the face. This procedure is suitable for men and women, as well as different skin colours. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and most patients find this treatment painless. BBL treatment is described as causing a slight burning sensation. There is minimal downtime associated with BBL and all patients are free to return to their daily routine straight away with noticeable results.
3D Rejuvenation is a laser treatment creating new channels of healthy tissue. Strengthening and healing on the skin.
With 3D Rejuvenation, you can enjoy a personalised skin treatment plan to diminish the appearance of rosacea. 3D Rejuvenation is known for its effective treatment of the following:
This procedure is effective for revitalising the face, neck and chest and has been described as creating a pinching sensation for patients. However, it is well tolerated and every effort is made to make sure patients are comfortable. In addition, there is minimal downtime associated with this treatment and patients can return to work straight afterwards.
Red Vessel Removal is a simple, direct Diode laser that creates heat and breaks down the broken vessel over the cheeks and nose. While most patients find this treatment painless, a topic anaesthetic can be applied to the skin if a patient is uncomfortable during the procedure. The laser is used to break down the blood vessels. More than one treatment session may be required, with each procedure lasting around 30 minutes.
Red Vessel Removal can also treat:
• Chronic sun damage
• Removal of common benign overgrowths of blood vessels
• Reduction of brown spots
• Red acne scars and marks
