Laser treatments for rosacea
Thank you for your question super85. Rosacea is a common condition characterized by redness or flushing typically in the central face that may have specific triggers. The first step in rosacea treatment is using an appropriate broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or more daily. Topical products such as niacinamide are helpful as well. Lasers that target redness include KTP (532 nm), pulsed dye (585-595 nm), IPL, and Nd:YAG (1,064 nm). Some people take niacin by mouth prior to a treatment. Niacin is a vitamin B3 analog that brings blood to the surface of the skin. Since the target of the laser is blood there will be more of a target so theoretically it may lead to improved results. However there have been studies comparing the two so we do not know the answer to your question. Combining an Nd:YAG treatment using laser genesis settings (0.3 msec pulse width) with either KTP, pulsed dye, or IPL treatments will lead to further improvement. A series of three to six treatments are recommended. Treatments can be done at 4-8 week intervals. After the initial series, maintenance treatments are recommended once every three months. Please consult a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Excel V for rosacea and redness
I would agree with Dr. Elias. It works very well and does not need to have redness. I also will combine with Laser Genesis for optimal results. You have one of the best lasers on the market and should have great results.
