Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory cutaneous disease that can severely impair the quality of life. However, despite various treatment options, treatment results are often unsatisfactory, and relapses are common. Thus, new and more effective treatment options are desirable. Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a therapeutic method whereby cancers are ablated by the heat generated from absorbed near-infrared light energy.1 PTT can also be used to treat inflammatory diseases, including acne vulgaris. However, little is known about the efficacy and safety of PTT for treating rosacea. Therefore, we performed a prospective pilot study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of gold nanoshell-mediated PTT for the treatment of refractory papulopustular rosacea (PPR).
