What is Rosacea?
Rosacea and facial telangiectasia (ruptured blood vessels) occur when there are small red or purple blood vessels or redness around the cheeks, nose and chin. Aside from cosmetic problems, blood vessels and redness often exacerbate skin redness and burns. They are usually chronic and progressive, becoming more pronounced with time and ongoing sun exposure.
The condition can be aggravated by:
- Ultraviolet light
- Spicy food
- Anxiety/emotional stress
- Vasodilator medications
- Facial telangiectasia/ rosacea is also associated with sun damage
How can Rosacea be treated?

The IPL can also be used for facial telangiectasia/rosacea and has a large treatment head for faster treatment. Multiple treatments may be required and the underlying rosacea must be properly managed. Antibiotics are effective for inflammatory papules and pustules. Patients should avoid factors that may aggravate their condition.
What should you expect?
IPL and lasers for telangiectasia/rosacea are less painful when used in combination with skin cooling devices and local anesthetic creams. Patients may experience slight edema and erythema after treatment. These changes usually last for several days and look like a moderate sunburn. 48 hours after treatment for telangiectasia/rosacea, patients should avoid exposure to sun exposure, excessive heat and alcohol as they may cause flushing.
Patients are generally satisfied with the improvement after the initial telangiectasia/rosacea treatment. Up to 3 treatments may be required for best results. While it is natural for the telangiectasia/rosacea condition to recur over the years, it is important for patients to realise that this can be addressed with repeated treatments and cosmeceutical support.
