|Can laser or pulsed light treatment help
Answered by Dr. Harvey H. Jay
I have successfully treated rosacea with laser and pulsed light
methods for over eight years. My methods produce dramatic results,
and are effective and safe for all skin types.
Do you suffer from:
- Redness and/or Blood Vessels?
- Flushing, Burning, Stinging, or Tingling?
- Steroid Rosacea?
Redness and/or Blood Vessels
Since December of 1995, I have successfully treated hundreds of
patients with distinct blood vessels or smaller "blush" blood
vessels with PhotoDerm. I use completely different settings to treat
smaller and larger vessels. In my hands, pulsed light can routinely
treat and improve the blush or blood vessels of rosacea virtually
painlessly. Patients are usually able to return to their normal
activities within minutes after treatment.
Treatment usually produces an immediate improvement which
frequently continues to improve for an additional 1 to 2 weeks after
each treatment. Bruising is very rare and occurs in less than 1% of
Patients who have previously been treated with lasers, electric
needles, sclerotherapy injections, or even by PhotoDerm pulsed light
administered by non-expert M.D.'s are amazed at their results after
my Photoderm pulsed light treatment of new blood vessels and/or
blush. No other method is available to treat this problem as safely,
quickly, and comfortably! No oral or topical anesthetic has ever
been needed by my patients!
I routinely see patients who have one or more of the following
facial problems: prominent blood vessels, redness, flushing, and
symptoms such as burning, stinging or tingling. Most of these
patients have been unsuccessfully treated with topical and/or
According to most of my patients, topical rosacea
treatments such as:
- Metronidazole (Metrogel, Metrocream, Metrolotion, Noritate)
- Clindamycin (Cleocin T gel, lotion or solution, Clindagel,
Clindamax lotion or gel)
- Azelaic Acid (Azelex, Finacea)
or oral medication such as:
- Erythromycin, Tetracycline, Minocycline, Doxycycline
have not been helpful in treating their rosaceal problem.
All of these medicines do not significantly improve the
redness, blush, blood vessels, or the flushing, burning, stinging,
or tingling of rosacea.
Pulsed light — using my Ultimate Light™ method — can &
does frequently improve these problems!
Most of these topical or oral medications' effect is on the
pimples (papules or pustules) that can occur in Rosacea. My patients
report that their pimples respond to pulsed light Ultimate Light™
treatment. The pulsed light treatment can improve the pimples to
such an extent that additional topical or oral medications
frequently can be reduced or eliminated completely!
