Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels on the face, as well as pimple-like bumps, itching, and dry skin.
The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but it is believed to be related to a combination of factors, including genetics, lifestyle, and skin sensitivities.
Rosacea affects people of all skin types and races, but it is most common in fair-skinned individuals and those with a family history of the condition.
There is no cure for rosacea, but there are several treatments available to help manage its symptoms, including medications, topical creams, and light-based treatments like Lumecca IPL.
Schedule a consultation with one of our Model Standards clinicians and they will be able to help you determine the best course of action for you and your skin concerns.
Lumecca IPL has been shown to be effective in treating the redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea. The intense pulsed light energy helps to reduce inflammation and promote skin healing, resulting in a clearer and more even complexion.
Lumecca IPL is safe for individuals with rosacea. However, it is important to discuss any concerns with your skincare professional before undergoing the treatment.
The number of Lumecca IPL treatments needed for rosacea will vary depending on the severity of your symptoms and your individual skin concerns. Our Model Standards clinicians can recommend a personalised treatment plan based on your unique needs.
There is usually no significant downtime after a Lumecca IPL treatment for rosacea. Some patients may experience mild redness or swelling for a few hours following the treatment, but this usually subsides quickly.
Lumecca IPL can also be combined with other treatments for rosacea, such as medications and topical creams, to achieve the best results.
During your consultation we will work with you to recommend a personalised treatment plan that includes the right combination of therapies for your skin's unique needs.
All of our clients first come in for a consultation. The consultation is there to talk you through your options, give you a patch test and check for any medical issues. The consultation costs £50 but this comes off the price of the treatment package that you go with. At your consultation, one of our nurse clinicians will talk you through options and get you booked in for your first treatment.
