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.
We provide a combination of the latest available laser treatments to help you keep Rosacea under control.
The GentleMax Pro is a first-class laser that uses a combination of 2 powerful lasers to remove unwanted hair: the Alexandrite and the YAG. This laser provides patients with a more comfortable hair removal experience. It’s non-invasive because it only targets and heats the areas that need treatment. GentleMax successfully destroys the hair follicle, without affecting the surrounding skin.
Minimum 6 consecutive treatment sessions 4 weeks apart are required. Maintenance treatments are recommended.
Elos Plus is a state of the art multi-application platform from Syneron-Candela – leading manufacturers in non-invasive aesthetic procedures.
Broad-spectrum light (blue, red and near-infrared light) and bi-polar radiofrequency energy are optimally combined in each pulse and delivered to target tissues. The blue light spectrum attacks the P. Acnes bacteria in the sebaceous glands, reducing the bacterial count, healing inflammation and regulating the sebaceous gland activity.
Oxygenation and free radicals destroy the P-Acnes bacteria in the target tissues without causing injury to the epidermis. Red, infrared light spectrum and bi-polar radiofrequency initiate a thermal drying response to minimize sebum production resulting in visible improvement in textural irregularities and overall appearance of acne-prone skin.
Elos Plus uses an integrated contact cooling system for enhanced patient tolerance.
Active papular – papulopustular acne.
Acne Treatment Protocol:
Requires a minimum of 8-10 consecutive treatment sessions 1-2 times per week.
