Latest Laser IPL Treatment for Rosacea

M22 Multi-Application System

Rosacea affects a staggering number of people – the National Rosacea Foundation suggest that there are 6 million Americans suffering from the skin condition.

The best known signs and symptoms of rosacea are a characteristic redness and flushing, most commonly on the forehead, cheeks and chin. Skin can also become itchy and sensitive and may develop spots which can become inflamed. Thread veins and capillaries may become larger and more visible too. It can become further inflamed by heat, cold, sunlight, spicy foods, exercise and stress.

Rosacea is considered a permanent condition and can be quite hard to treat. GPs may recommend creams or tablets to control the symptoms, but can do little about the cause as rosacea is not fully understood.

Treatment for Rosacea

M22 IPL with OPT

One solution for IPL is the new Lumenis M22 multi-application system. This advanced technology combines IPL with ResurFX™ – fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing, Multi-Spot™ ND:YAG with Multiple Sequential Pulsing and Q-Switched Nd:YAG – treatment of pigmented lesions in an endlessly adaptable series of treatment options.

M22™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with unique Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) has been FDA cleared for rosacea treatment and other skin inflammatory conditions. Lumenis’ website states:

“The Lumenis IPL with OPT™ is considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for treatment of vascular lesions and its efficacy has been proven in over 80 peer reviewed papers (IPL bibliography of studies and peer reviewed articles).

“The IPL procedure removes facial superficial vessels and as a result dramatically decreases or completely eliminates facial redness.”
