Rosacea, also called couperose or erythrose, is a chronic, benign disease that causes dilation of small capillaries in the skin and promotes the appearance of tiny red vascular lesions on the face and nose. It is characterized by red or ruddy, extremely sensitive skin.
While it is first and foremost a hereditary condition, rosacea can be aggravated by exposure to the sun, wind and cold, as well as by the consumption of alcohol or strong spices. Localized cortisone-based treatment can also affect it negatively.
If you suffer from rosacea, it is likely that you have permanently red cheeks.
Luckily, rosacea and vascular lesions can be treated!
Here is what ILCO has to offer for the efficient treatment of rosacea, collapsed veins, and port-wine stains.
Often combined with a V-Beam laser treatment, IPL treats redness caused by couperose, angioma and vascular lesions. It brightens you right up!
As there are many IPL technologies on the market, beware of imitations! All photorejuvenation technologies do not have the same therapeutic effectiveness.
The use of laser is still the best option to treat these skin conditions. Practically painless, it works immediately to reduce the face’s redness.
The V-beam is a yellow pulsed-dye laser that targets only superficial blood vessels. This makes it the best choice to treat rosacea, vascular lesions and port wine stains.
