Can Laser Resurfacing Treatments Help with Rosacea?

The intense summer months can often be particularly stressful for people who have rosacea, a common skin disease that primarily affects the face and is associated with flushed skin and visible blood vessels. Hot weather, sun exposure, and humidity are known to trigger flare-ups of this condition. Do laser treatments work for rosacea? Our Little Rock-based Dermatology Group of Arkansas often gets this question from people who are searching for ways to manage the chronic skin problem.

Laser and light-based therapies may often be part of the treatment plan for many individuals who have rosacea, especially for those who have visible blood vessels and thickened skin as a result of the disease. Lasers are effective for reducing lasting redness on the surface of the facial skin (along with other acne-like blemishes), can reduce or get rid of visible blood vessels, and can also address thickened skin.

Moxi laser treatments can often be ideal for improving skin problems such as acne and rosacea. This gentle laser treatment reduces pigmentation and boosts new cell growth. It’s an ideal choice for improving cosmetic concerns such as textural issues, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.

Moxi is a fractionated, non-ablative laser that’s safe for all skin tones and can be used in any season of the year. Its fractionated approach creates thousands of microscopic columns in the skin without breaking the surface. These tiny injuries encourage the skin to create new collagen that makes the skin plumper and smoother. The light energy also damages red-pigmented cells, causing them to break down and lead to a more even appearance.

This skin revitalization treatment has less downtime compared to many other skin resurfacing treatments. In addition to treating rosacea, Moxiis ideal for those who want a light touch up or younger patients who hope to reduce the earliest signs of aging skin or skin damage.
