Rosacea is a skin condition that mainly affects women between the ages of 40 and 50. These are localized and most often benign redness, made up of very thin dilated vessels, but which can over time become disabling because they are unsightly.
The dilation of the vessels progresses by causing redness which becomes more and more permanent and which is sometimes accompanied by red spots (acne rosacea).
When it comes to tackling rosacea, aesthetic medicine now offers solutions to counter this phenomenon: treatment with flash lamps or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light).
Even if at present, the triggers of rosacea are still poorly understood, a priori it would be the combination of several factors: biological, environmental and genetic.
Some factors are known to make rosacea worse:
Regarding the duration of the session, it is also around 10 to 30 minutes.
It is more unpleasant than really painful.
Within 24 to 48 hours, you may also notice a slight swelling with some pain that will go away quickly.
Usually 1-3 sessions are needed spaced 1 or 2 months apart for the skin to heal properly.
Maintenance every 2 to 3 years is often necessary.
