Acne And Rosacea Getting You Down? Laser, Light And Cosmetic Treatments Give Patients A Much-Needed Boost
Date:2/3/2008

r from rosacea is the pulsed dye laser (PDL). This laser's wavelength effectively targets the obvious blood vessels, absorbing them through the light-attracting molecules that work to destroy them. PDL also can reduce the flushing and redness that rosacea patients experience, but Dr. Kim cautioned that this laser can cause some temporary bruising in patients -- although some of the newer PDLs are eliminating this side effect.

Another light therapy proven effective in treating rosacea is intense pulsed light therapy (IPL). After filtering out the harmful, cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays, IPL therapy delivers a multitude of light to the affected areas where it absorbs the targeted blood vessels and redness. Dr. Kim noted that IPL is preferred for larger areas of diffused redness, whereas the PDL treatment works best for targeting the obvious blood vessels on the face.

For a less common, but more problematic, symptom of rosacea known as rhinophyma (a thickening of the skin on the nose and cheeks that can look bumpy), the newer erbium lasers and fractional photothermolysis are being used to smooth the nose without significant removal of the top layer of skin, which is a common side effect of more aggressive treatments.

"Dermatologists are experts in skin and can help determine the most effective treatment for their patients," added Dr. Kim. "We expect these treatments to continue to improve as more basic and clinical research is conducted."
