Couperose manifests through sensations of cutaneous burning, tickling and heating and leaves red marks on the skin. These symptoms appear when small blood vessels on the cheeks, on the nose, on the front, or on the chin dilate.
Rosacea represents an inflammatory facial skin disorder that affects 2 to 3% of adults. The cause of this condition has not been identified yet. Rosacea is characterized by fine blood vessels dilatation, flushes of redness which can be followed by very dry skin areas and small red pustules with or without points of pus. Untreated, Rosacea may aggravate in time. Unfortunately there is no cure that can eliminate this evolving condition.
Sun exposure, emotional factors, heredity and temperature variations are elements that may contribute to the aggravation of these two conditions.
The treatment with Intense Pulse Light represents a solution to diminish facial blotchiness and to improve the skin appearance by draining and blurring visible fine blood vessels and redness.
Local treatment of skin zones affected by Couperose or Rosacea is essential to limit further dehydration and deterioration. In these cases, prevention is your best ally!
