It depends on the type of redness you have: dilated vessel use the Nd:Yag has been very successful with my patients. Finacea topic cream +/or Oracea by mouth would probably be very beneficial.

Pulsed Dye Laser Treatments
Hi Fussy. Your practitioners should have pointed you to pulsed dye laser treatments such as the Cynosure V-star or the Candela V-Beam. IPL and BBL treatments are a much inferior technology when it comes to treating Rosacea. If you have moderate to sever Rosacea, you may need bruising treatments to make progress. Ask your practitioner about this type of treatment. Good luck.
