Rosacea is a skin condition that affects millions worldwide, causing redness in the face (usually but not limited to the cheeks) and an appearance reminiscent of acne. Needless to say, this can cause psychological and social problems for sufferers of the condition. However, it not only often goes untreated, it frequently is not diagnosed. That diagnosis is even more problematic for individuals with darker skin, whether that pigmentation comes from genetics or sun exposure, as most data on patients treated for rosacea have lighter complexions.
Fortunately, if you suffer from rosacea or think you may suffer from it, there’s a new technology designed to help people with rosacea and similar conditions. Our specialist Dermatologist at OCP Medical Center is using The Lumenis M22 which has multiple tools that use both Intense Pulsed Light to restore a more natural skin tone and appearance, and heat therapy to resurface the skin, eliminating spots and restoring better health. These tools–the IPL and ResurFX heat therapy–attend to a wide array of issues revolving around rough areas or spotty pigmentation in the skin, improving appearance in a way that does not first damage the skin, leaving you in better shape from your initial session on.
Currently, this is the most effective treatment for rosacea on the market. More importantly, if you’re unhappy with the state of your skin but aren’t sure if you specifically have rosacea, there’s an excellent chance we can help regardless of the diagnosis.
At OCP Medical Center our medical staff is here to help whenever you’re ready.
