Dr. Joseph Perlman offers rosacea treatment to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.
What Is Rosacea Treatment?
Rosacea is a skin condition associated with facial flushing and redness. In Texas, sun exposure can cause your blood vessels to break and become inflamed, resulting in facial redness. At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, the staff has found that rosacea patients can also have acne, enlarged oil glands, and visible facial blood vessels, particularly around the nose and cheeks.
The key to rosacea treatment involves reducing inflammation and redness and preventing further sun damage. Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre uses intense pulsed light (IPL) as the cornerstone of therapy. In addition, our rosacea patients need topical anti-inflammatory creams, as well as sunscreen, as part of their daily regimen.
IPL therapy offers a gentle yet effective rosacea treatment by improving the symptoms of the condition, particularly prominent blood vessels. Marina Lopez, aesthetician at the Bellezza Skin Care Clinic (a part of the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre), uses the patented IPL FotoFacial procedure for our rosacea treatments. It offers minimal discomfort and no downtime.
The rosacea treatment at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre has been welcomed by patients throughout Houston and surrounding regions. Hundreds of men and women from Spring, The Woodlands, and beyond have visited our office to find relief from this often-embarrassing skin condition.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rosacea Treatment?
Many men and women in the Houston area suffer from rosacea. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the skin condition affects about 14 million Americans. You are more likely to have rosacea if you are an adult between the ages of 30 and 50 and have lighter skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes. However, the condition can still be a problem for children and adults of all skin and hair types.
Because rosacea causes facial swelling and redness, it can easily be confused with other skin conditions, such as sunburn or acne. It is important that you have the proper diagnosis of your ailment. Once your condition is clear, you can generally qualify for rosacea treatment. You must keep in mind, however, that IPL procedures cannot cure rosacea; they only minimize the effects.
What Is the Process for Rosacea Treatment?
Before you undergo a full rosacea treatment, your specialist may begin with a test patch to be sure that you react well to IPL. During the procedure, your skin will receive high-energy pulses of light via a small hand piece. The bright flashes close down the blood vessels and capillaries that cause flushing and a red-faced appearance. You will be given protective eyewear to wear throughout the rosacea treatment.
Your rosacea treatment will make your skin feel soft and vibrant, giving it a healthier, more youthful look. Hundreds of men and women from our Houston community have already reaped the benefits of the procedure. The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre team looks forward to helping you take charge of your appearance with our rosacea treatment.
