Rozacea (cuperosis, rozacea), flushing
Rozacea (cuperosis, rozacea) is a common chronic inflammatory progressive disease which manifests itself externally on the face and causes psychological discomfort and is characterised by exacerbations and remissions. Usually begins at the age of 30 with the person being unaware that it needs to be treated. In its initial stages, pityriasis rosea occurs as flushing of cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead. Sometimes it can also manifest in neck, chest, head, or ear areas. Over time, the flushing increases and becomes chronic, with the face blood vessels becoming more prominent. Without treatment, rozacea progresses and becomes hard to control. The symptoms include pink patches, pimples, blisters, and sometimes uneven, red, rough nose which occurs due to hypertrophy of sebaceous glands and connective tissue.
Treatment of rozacea (cuperosis) and flushing with the new Candela VBeam Perfecta pulsed-dye laser:
It is very important to detect and start treating pityriasis rosea. Treatment is performed by pharmaceuticals which control the disease and reduce the inflammatory symptoms; however, barely affect flushing or enlarged blood vessels. This is where the new Candela VBeam Perfecta pulsed-dye laser comes in, essentially reducing and getting rid of flushing caused by rozacea. This laser is considered to be the most effective and gold standard for treating chronic or occasional flushing, enlarged capillaries, and other vascular lesions. Candela VBeam Perfecta targets both visible blood vessels and the smallest enlarged capillaries which cause the flushing sensation characteristic for pityriasis rozacea. It removes a large superficial network of blood vessels associated with the redness, takes off flushing, and reduces the inflammation once certain inflammatory elements specific for pityriasis rosea occur. The laser also stimulates collagen synthesis, thus preventing the disease from progressing further, which is very important for rozacea patients. VBeam Perfecta laser also significantly improves the skin structure and appearance. Procedures performed by the laser are called causal treatment and rightfully so.
The number of procedures depends on the severity of the disease: enlarged capillaries and mild redness can be removed after 1-2 procedures, whereas significant relief of flushing or complete removal of rozacea and its remission may take 2-4 procedures to achieve with improvements visible after each procedure. However, these laser procedures can only be performed by certified DOCTORS.
