IPL Rosacea Treatment
Does your face turn red just after you sip one glass of wine? Are you getting abnormal inflammation even after enjoying a good shower?
Rosacea seems to be a condition that appears immediately after you are exposed to a reaction. It is pretty similar to sunburn and may show up as a red face. This condition affects nearly 10% of adults and is quite common between the ages of 30 and 60. It may have a negative impact on your professional and social life.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) offers a practical solution which uses targeted light to reduce inflammation and restore the skin’s natural appearance over time in a gentle manner – providing long-lasting relief.
