What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic disorder that normally affects the face with redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. This can be constant or be flare-ups and can disrupt a person’s life due to the physiological affects on confidence. Normally as a person reaches 30 the condition worsens with increasing redness and frequency. Left untreated blood vessels become noticeable and bumps will appear.The condition can affect anyone but tends to be more common on people with fair skin. Men and women get it equally. Women normally manage the symptoms of rosacea earlier- maybe due to their comfort in using skin care- therefore reducing the severity. Men experiencing rosacea can become more severe because they don’t tend to seek treatment until showing advanced stages.

GentleMax Pro Laser– Effective Rosacea Management Solution

Mechanism of Action

  • Absorption of the unique Nd:YAG long pulse 1064nm or 755nm laser heats up the hemoglobin on the treated areas.
  • Heat transfers to the damaged blood vessel walls causing contraction and destroying the blood vessel.
  • Destroyed blood vessel is eliminated by phagocytosis (body’s removal process via the immune system).

The number of sessions depends on the severity but can range from 2 to 4 treatments to achieve clearance. In many cases the visible signs of improvement can be immediate. Rosacea may reoccur over time, maintenance of single treatments only is required when the first signs of redness appear.
