A common concern for patients is redness on the skin. Often times the redness is caused by rosacea. Fortunately, we have an outstanding treatment to control rosacea.
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a condition characterized by the appearance of redness on the face. This usually occurs in the central face on the nose and cheeks, but for some people it can spread to the entire face and even down to the neck. Sometimes you see generalized redness on the skin and in some people, you can see broken capillaries, particularly on the nose and cheeks. In some cases, bumps appear, making it look like acne; and sometimes rosacea is confused with acne. People with rosacea tend to have sensitive skin. With rosacea there are triggers that lead to the redness. Everyone is different, but common triggers include sun exposure, heat, cold, eating spicy food, drinking alcohol, and emotional stress.
How is rosacea treated?
Rosacea is a chronic condition that is controlled, not cured. The first thing to do is to identify the triggers for the individual and avoid them. Sunscreen is important for all patients with rosacea because the radiation from the sun can make everything worse, even if it is not a trigger. Dr. Alex recommends a sunscreen with SPF at least 30 every day. Rosacea patients love the Elta MD UV Clear sunscreen because it contains an ingredient called niacinamide. This is a vitamin B derivative which helps to reduce redness. Treatment for rosacea involves targeting the blood vessels in the skin. This can be done with lasers. Dr. Alex combines the Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial with a laser skin tightening treatment. This combination is called the Tight and Bright Rejuvenation. The light from this treatment is absorbed by the blood in the skin and destroys the blood vessels in the skin. Overall patients see a significant reduction in redness and broken capillaries. Dr. Alex recommends an initial series of six monthly treatments followed by a single maintenance treatment every three months after that.

Tight and Bright Rejuvenation Patient Testimonial
Patients at A E Skin have been getting outstanding results with the Tight and Bright Rejuvenation. The A E Skin Tight and Bright Rejuvenation is a combination treatment designed by Dr. Alex to address multiple signs of aging. As seen in the photograph the Tight and Bright Rejuvenation improves dark spots, age spots, redness, and broken capillaries while at the same time decreasing pore size, decreasing fine lines, and providing a youthful glow to the skin. The Tight and Bright Rejuvenation treatment itself takes less than 15 minutes and three to six treatments are recommended at four to eight week intervals. After that one maintenance treatment is done every three months. After application of numbing cream, the treatment begins with a Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial, Dr. Alex's most popular treatment. This step uses a bright light which is absorbed by the pigment in the skin to destroy the age spots. This is immediately followed by a Skin Tightening or Photorejuvenation treatment, which uses an infrared laser. The infrared light is absorbed by the blood in the skin, heating the blood and destroying the tiny blood vessels. This helps with generalized redness and broken capillaries. The heat is also dissipated to the surrounding skin, which leads to the formation of new, fresh, and healthy collagen in the surface layers. This causes improvement of fine lines and wrinkles and closes enlarged pores. Overall a brighter and more youthful appearance is achieved with the A E Skin Tight and Bright Rejuvenation. For best results, combine a series of Tight and Bright Rejuvenation treatments with a personized skin care regimen designed by Dr. Alex. Contact us for a free consultation with Dr. Alex.
