Laser and light therapies for acne rosacea.

J Drugs Dermatol. 2006 Jan;5(1):35-9

Authors: Butterwick KJ, Butterwick LS, Han A

Acne rosacea is a multifactorial, somewhat mercurial disorder that can be a challenge to control with standard pharmacologic agents. Laser and light sources have been increasingly utilized, particularly for control of the generalized erythema, flushing, and telangiectasia of rosacea. This paper will review the clinical studies presented in the literature specifically treating patients with rosacea. Long-pulsed dye lasers and intense pulsed light devices can offer patients effective treatment without the purpura of short-pulsed dye lasers. Long-term efficacy has not been studied but maintenance therapy may be necessary to control the vascular manifestations of this disease.
