Enjoy Clearer, Healthier-Looking Skin with Laser Therapy
Often confused with a severe case of acne, rosacea is a chronic condition that typically affects people in their 30s and 40s. Nearly 20 million people throughout North America suffer from the flushing and red patches that are often associated with rosacea and other skin-reddening conditions. Rosacea typically affects skin on the face, including the cheeks, nose and forehead, and if left untreated it typically worsens over time. The subtle redness often progresses to more defined papules and pustules, unsightly bumps and pimples made even more visible due to nearby dilated blood vessels. People with rosacea may also experience ocular rosacea, signalled by redness, itchiness, or a burning sensation in the eyes or eyelids.
Until recently, people suffering from rosacea relied on creams and antibiotics to treat outbreaks of rosacea. Laser treatment for rosacea is now an option for patients with the condition. Now, thanks to laser therapy at the Laser Essential & Skin Care clinic in Toronto, people who suffer from rosacea no longer have to live with the condition. Using pinpoint laser technology, the vascular structures that are responsible for causing rosacea are destroyed. As time passes, the vessels are absorbed by the body and fade from sight, leaving patients with clearer, healthier-looking skin.
