Energy-based Therapies for Rosacea

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


"Energy‐based therapies such as lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) have been employed in rosacea in order to selectively target and thermally damage dysregulated blood vessels and can often effectively manage some of the vascular signs of the disease, including telangiectasia and persistent erythema. However, not all patients respond to energy‐based therapies, some patients may require more than one treatment—with substantial associated costs—and energy‐based therapies may result in adverse side effects including unwanted purpura or erythema. Energy‐based treatment also has limited efficacy in reducing diffuse erythema associated with acne rosacea due to the small caliber of vessels, which are more difficult to target."
