Having rosacea can be frustrating and uncomfortable, with symptoms that can significantly and negatively impact your self-esteem and quality of life. We understand why many people are looking for the best rosacea treatment near them. 

Fortunately for individuals in the Oshawa and Durham Region, Harmony MedSpa provides effective rosacea treatment options tailored to you. From medical-grade skincare solutions to laser therapy, we can help you find relief from rosacea.

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition primarily affecting the face. It causes persistent redness (or brown discolouration on darker skin), visible blood vessels, acne-like bumps, and pustules. The condition can vary in severity and may flare up for periods before diminishing.

While the exact cause of rosacea remains unknown, it’s thought to be linked to genetic and environmental factors, as well as issues related to the immune system, blood vessels, and skin connective tissue. 

What’s certain is that anyone can get rosacea, regardless of age, family history or skin colour. However, it’s more common in fair-skinned individuals aged 30 to 60 with British or European roots.

Symptoms of Rosacea

This skin condition can be triggered by just about anything, from sun exposure and cold weather to spicy foods and hot beverages. What triggers rosacea varies from person to person, as do symptoms. Rosacea symptoms often look like:

  • Flushing and redness, especially on the cheeks, nose, and chin
  • Small, red bumps (papules) and pustules
  • Burning or stinging sensation
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Visible blood vessels (telangiectasia)
  • Skin irritation
  • Watery or bloodshot eyes
  • Thickened skin on the nose (rhinophyma)

A person’s eyesight can also be affected in more severe cases. For this situation, please consult an ophthalmologist.

Treatments for Rosacea

While there is currently no cure, numerous rosacea treatments can manage symptoms and improve your skin’s overall appearance. Our dedicated clinical team at Harmony MedSpa in Oshawa can help you find the most effective rosacea treatment approach for your specific condition.

Some of the rosacea treatments near you include:

Medical Grade Skincare

Our medical-grade skincare products from AlumierMD are formulated to soothe irritation, reduce facial redness, and improve skin texture to allow your skin to breathe again.

Oral Prescriptions

In some cases, oral antibiotics like tetracycline, minocycline, and doxycycline may be necessary to control inflammation and manage pustules.

Topical Prescriptions

Topical creams and gels like azelaic acid, metronidazole, or brimonidine tartrate can directly target facial redness, bumps, and visible blood vessels. 

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy for rosacea is a rockstar treatment that uses advanced laser technology to deliver precise, targeted energy to eliminate unwanted facial redness and rosacea-related vascular concerns.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) uses broad-spectrum light to treat rosacea and improve overall skin tone. Reduce redness and get a more even and radiant complexion!

How Laser Treatments for Rosacea Work

Laser treatments for rosacea work by delivering targeted beams of light to the affected skin areas. These beams selectively target and reduce the visibility of blood vessels, diminishing facial redness and improving skin appearance. The science behind this treatment is based on photothermolysis or “heating with light.” 

The laser or light energy from rosacea laser treatment devices gets absorbed by the hemoglobin (the red pigment in blood cells), effectively heating the unwanted vessels from the inside out. As the vessel walls heat up, they collapse and seal themselves shut, disappearing from the surface. 

One of the benefits of using lasers for rosacea is that they only target unwanted blood vessels, so the surrounding tissues remain unharmed. As an added benefit, laser treatments for rosacea can also stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and firmness.

Benefits of Rosacea Treatment: Results You Can Expect

Reduction of Redness and Visible Blood Vessels

Laser therapy for rosacea effectively targets and reduces redness and visible blood vessels. Topical medications and revised skincare regimens can also do wonders to alleviate these symptoms.

Improved Texture

With the help of trained skin care professionals, you can significantly reduce or even eliminate the bumps and pustules that occur with this condition.

Minimize Flushing and Blushing Skin

By addressing underlying triggers and managing symptoms, rosacea treatment can reduce flushing and blushing so you can feel confident and comfortable in any situation.

Non-Invasive & Minimal Downtime

Laser therapy for rosacea at Harmony MedSpa is non-surgical and pain-free. Treatments are typically quick, with minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately after. It is easier than ever to fit rosacea management into your busy life!

Minimal Discomfort

Laser for rosacea is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. We use advanced technology and soothing techniques to ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience.

Long-Lasting Results

With proper maintenance and ongoing treatment plans tailored by our expert team, the results of rosacea laser treatment can be long-lasting. Our commitment to personalized care and follow-up consultations ensures you get the most out of your treatment.

Rosacea Laser Treatment Aftercare

For most patients, laser therapy for rosacea provides a 50% to 75% reduction in visible blood vessels after one to three treatments—and some even experience a 100% reduction! However, the success of a patient’s rosacea laser treatment relies heavily on aftercare. 

Here are some key tips:

  • Apply a cool compress to the treated area to reduce swelling and discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours.
  • Gently wash your treated skin with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser once or twice a day.
  • Steer clear of harsh skincare products containing alcohol, fragrances, or retinoids, which can aggravate rosacea. 
  • Avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliating products.
  • Apply a moisturizer regularly to keep your skin hydrated and prevent dryness.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily, even on cloudy days or in the winter.
  • Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 to 72 hours after treatment to allow the skin to heal properly. 
  • When you do return to makeup, opt for gentle, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic products that won’t irritate your skin.
  • Identify your triggers and avoid activities or products that worsen symptoms, like hot showers, heavy exercise, and alcohol.

A note from Harmony MedSpa team: Every face is unique and healing timelines may vary from session to session. Always follow the instructions from your laser technician to ensure a smooth journey to clear, confident skin.

Potential Side Effects

While rosacea laser treatments are generally safe and well-tolerated, some temporary side effects can occur, such as:

  • Facial redness and swelling
  • Rashes
  • Itching or skin tightening
  • Bruising
  • Scabbing
  • Increased sensitivity

Don’t worry! These side effects usually resolve within a week or two. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, contact your doctor or skin specialist immediately.
