What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is often mistaken for acne due to the redness and pimples that often accompany it. The cause of this redness is often small blood vessels that are visible from the skin’s surface, which is a symptom not usually caused by other skin conditions. Although rosacea cannot be cured, treatment can help minimize symptoms and make the skin look as clear as possible. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we perform laser therapy with the Alma Harmony XL laser system for rosacea symptoms. We may also recommend a special rosacea facial from SkinCeuticals.
How Much Does Rosacea Treatment Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your rosacea treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Rosacea Treatment Performed?
The rosacea treatment will depend on the technique being used. Rosacea facials are a straightforward treatment that involve a unique blend of ingredients, helping patients reduce redness in a single treatment. For laser therapy, we will first apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area in order to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the treatment process. Then, the laser device will be used to target the affected areas of the skin. As laser energy is delivered to the skin, it eliminates blood vessels responsible for causing a red, flushed appearance. This treatment is typically performed in under 30 minutes.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Rosacea Treatment?
After rosacea treatment, the veins in the treated area should begin to fade, reducing redness within a few weeks. However, many patients require multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results. We typically recommend a series of at least three treatments.
Is There Downtime After Rosacea Treatment?
Although the skin may have mild redness or sensitivity, there is no downtime required after rosacea treatment. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their treatment. We encourage patients to limit sun exposure following their rosacea treatment to prevent damage to the skin while it is healing.
