The redness and bumps of rosacea can be embarrassing, and the medications used to manage it aren’t always a good option for some patients. Talk to a dermatologist about whether laser therapy might be a better alternative for you. The Vbeam Perfecta Pulsed Dye Laser is a gentle, yet powerful therapy that’s safe for people of all skin types.
Laser therapy can effectively minimize the reddening of the skin, but there are a few precautions you should know about. Your dermatologist may ask you to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments. If you must go outdoors, wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply it every two hours. Additionally, avoid products that can make your skin more sensitive to light, such as retinol and benzoyl peroxide.
