Rosacea, Redness, and Blood Vessel Treatment
Aerolase comprehensively addresses rosacea, redness, veins, and broken capillaries in a single, 20-25 minute treatment session. A common condition with skin aging is the appearance of redness and formation of veins and broken capillaries in the skin. Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and with time the gradual development of persistent facial redness and spider-like blood vessels. It is often punctuated by episodes of inflammatory papules (bumps), pustules (pimples), and swelling.
Management for many people often includes avoidance of popular foods and alcohol as well as cosmetic camouflage, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Other diffuse redness including poikiloderma of civatte may be attributed by other factors such as exposure to UV rays and lifestyle, which can also be addressed with Aerolase treatment. The Aerolase Neo effectively addresses these conditions with deep-penetrating energy that suppresses the inflammation causing the redness. It also coagulates the unwanted veins and broken capillaries, which are then gradually cleared by the body’s natural immune response.

What to expect
When you see Dr. Mascia, she will discuss your current skincare regimen and any areas that you would like addressed. We recommend 3-4 treatments spaced approximately 2-4 weeks apart depending on what is best for your condition. On the day of your treatment, you will arrive free of make-up or creams if possible. Then, Dr. Mascia will help you put on protective eyewear and you will recline and relax while she applies laser pulses across your skin that feels like a pulse of warm air. You may want to fall asleep or choose a station on Pandora while Dr. Mascia switches to a stronger lens to address individual blood vessels and another other issues while she is treating you.
Following your treatment, she will recommend a cream with SPF 35 or greater to wear daily. You should also have Aquafor at home to prevent scab formation in any deeply treated regions. You should continue Aquafor until all spots are healed. Many times, lesions disappear without scabbing.
