Rosacea is considered a vascular disorder which has noticeable characteristics including persistent skin redness, red papular and pustular bumps, dilated blood vessels on the face and a thickened skin texture; all of which can present on a cycle of flare-ups and remissions.


One popular treatment for rosacea is the vascular laser. Heat and energy from the laser's beam target a compound called hemoglobin in your blood vessels; small vessels then collapse, decreasing the appearance of redness. Treatments using other forms of focused light—including intense pulsed light, which works by similar mechanisms—can also reduce redness. Though both are effective for many people with rosacea, they're not permanent 

The latest Clarity II, the multi-purpose laser, can be used to treat a very effectively wide variety of defined pigmentation and skin lesion conditions, including Rosacea. Vascular lesions sometimes appear due to sun damage, genetics, and the normal aging process; they can happen naturally or be a result of an environmental source. 


CLARITY II Treatment

How do laser treatments work to remove pigment spots?
The laser energy is directed onto the pigments (or, for birthmarks, also onto the vascular tissue) and breaks them up. The dead skin cells are then removed by the body’s natural processes. This type of treatment is associated with little damage to the skin and tissue in the surrounding skin region. The degree of difficulty of this treatment depends on factors such as the skin colour of the patient and the size, type and number of pigment spots. Treating people with darker skin can be more difficult, but an expert can achieve good results with the appropriate equipment and careful application. In some cases, multiple treatments are required.
The complexion clears up within a few days after the treatment. The dark pigment spots disappear and your complexion is more even and looks refreshed.
