Treatment for Blemishes (Spots), Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by redness of the skin on the face, neck, and décolletage, often accompanied by broken blood vessels (telangiectasias or spider veins) on the nose and cheeks. This condition is triggered by external stimuli such as sunlight, heat, high temperatures, changes in mood, stress, or internal factors such as an underlying systemic illness, medications, or vasovagal reactions.
It is treated with IPL: INTENSE PULSED LIGHT, to address skin redness, erythrosis, and prevent chronic inflammatory responses. Approximately 3 sessions are conducted every 8 days.
LASER: Used to treat red or purplish telangiectasias or spider veins, another 3 sessions are performed every 15 days.
Additionally, it’s complemented with Hydrafacial, a FACIAL TREATMENT involving deep cleansing, sebum regulation, hydration (as many individuals with this condition have oily skin), and photoprotection. Approximately 2 sessions are recommended every 8 days.
A SKIN CHECK UP is necessary initially to determine the type of blemish.
EPIDERMAL: RECENT: EXTRINSIC FACTORS: TOPICAL PRODUCTS, PHOTOSSENSITIZERS: Antihistamines, Hydrocortisone, Anti-inflammatories (Voltaren, Furacin), Insect repellent, Antibiotics (Terramycin), SUNLIGHT.

•PRE-PEELING: Depigmenting agent applied 8 – 10 days prior to using any equipment, and maintained throughout the treatment period (approximately 1-2 months).
•MICRODERMABRASION and/or PEELING: Conducted in 4-6 sessions every 8-15 days.
•DERMAPEN: A novel device similar to a dermaroller with micro-needles that penetrate the skin deeply.
