Vbeam for Redness
Although IPL can improve broken vessels and redness, I believe that the Vbeam is gold standard for these types of treatments. You will get better results in a quicker time frame with Vbeam vs IPL. You generally need a series of treatments for the best results.
The Vbeam can certainly improve your Rosacea/redness, but it is also important for you to know that once you are treated, you can have a Rosacea flare up depending on your triggers.
The most common trigger is sun exposure, remember to use an SPF 50 daily and seek shade when possible. Certain foods and drinks can also trigger a flare up, such as spicy foods, hot drinks, caffeine and alcoholic beverages.
It is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to ensure this option is best for you.

Pulsed dye laser versus IPL
If it's truly redness that you are targeting, you cannot go wrong with the pulsed dye laser. As far as lasers go, this is generally an inexpensive option to boot.
Make sure your laser surgeon is a dermatologist, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained and one of these core four cosmetic specialties.
Vbeam for facial redness
The V-Beam laser is the gold standard for treating facial redness. The V-Beam laser works better than the IPL laser for treating facial redness. It works on facial scars, broken blood vessels, leg veins, and acne. It is my favorite laser for rosacea and facial redness.
