Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects over three million Canadians.
The first sign may be intermittent redness or blushing. Over time, the redness may become persistent and more visible.
The most common sites for symptoms are the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Sometimes rosacea may involve the eyes as well and include symptoms such as bloodshot eyes that feel gritty. More than half of rosacea sufferers may experience eye symptoms.
Bumps, tiny pus-filled pimples and enlarged blood vessels can also appear, giving skin a rough, uneven appearance. Rosacea symptoms can vary from one person to another and severity is unpredictable. It is more commonly found in people with lighter skin.
Common triggers include genetics, hormonal changes, emotional distress, ultraviolet exposure, extreme weather conditions, environmental factors or lifestyle choices.
A hereditary inflammatory condition presenting as persistent redness on the surface of the skin with the visible appearance of superficial blood vessels, and mainly affecting the nose, forehead, and cheeks. Common causes include genetics, ageing, hormonal changes, ultraviolet exposure, extreme climate changes or lifestyle factors.

PURE LIGHT G – controlled wavelengths of green light stimulate photoreceptors in dermal layers by directly targeting melanocytes: melanin-producing cells located in the epidermal layers. The rise of melanin to the skin surface is prevented by breaking down the melanin deposits in the epidermis. In addition, melanin production and tyrosine activity are minimized, resulting in visible improvement in the appearance of existing discoloration.
PURE LIGHT G can be combined with other procedures, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels – for gentle skin resurfacing and transdermal delivery – for optimum penetration of active ingredients.
Hyperpigmentation, freckles, melasma, discoloration, uneven skin tone, sun damage and sun or age spots.
Requires a minimum of 6-8 consecutive treatment sessions, 1-3 times per month. Monthly maintenance sessions are recommended.
