How does treatment work?
For vascular blemishes, including rosacea, a choice of treatment modalities is available - the Cynosure Cynergy Pulsed Dye and YAG laser and the Ellipse+ Intense Pulsed Light system.
The high intensity light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed in the red pigment (haemoglobin) of the blood vessel. This results in selective heating and destruction of the vessel which then gradually fades. Vessel disappearance occurs over a period of 4 – 6 weeks.
It is usually necessary to repeat the treatment after six weeks to obtain a good final result.
