IPL for Rosacea

 
Hi and thank you for your question! IPL is a great treatment for rosacea specially in patients with fair skin. Following each round of treatment at least 4 weeks is needed for the treatment process to complete, but it is very important to remember that for best results, a series of treatments is recommended. Following the treatment (and really always, regardless of getting any treatments or not), generous use of a high quality sunblock throughout the day is required. Also please use a good moisturizer to prevent the skin from drying and follow up with your physician. I hope it helps and good luck!
