IPL can be effective, lasers better for rosacea in general.
IPL is a photofacial -- get Fraxel with Microneedling or combine with IPL and microneedling/PRP

IPL for Rosacea
Hello, and thank you for your question! While a picture would be helpful I can give you some general guidelines. Rosacea creates three general kinds of redness - visible broken capillaries which appear as tiny red "squiggles" on the skin, diffuse redness which is a general red tone where individual capillaries can't be seen, and red bumps which look like acne. The best treatment depends on which kind(s) of redness you are experiencing.(1) Visible broken capillaries respond best to and IPL type laser(2) general diffuse redness responds best to a laser such as the Cutera Genesis(3) red acne-like bumps are best treated with topicals.If you have diffuse redness and visible capillaries both, you can do combined treatments with IPL and Genesis (which can be done in one sitting), or treatments with the Cutera Excel V which is basically a combination of these two lasers. I hope this helps and good luck!
