fluorescent lights (and other artificial lights)

Recommended Posts

It is not uncommon for rosaceans to complain about artificial lights, particularly fluorescent lights, computer screens, etc. Whether any of these types of artificial lights actually trigger rosacea or not is something that should be tested in a double blind, controlled study to answer these type of trigger questions. At any rate, it is fun to watch this scene in Joe vs the Volcano where Tom Hanks says, "Zombie lights, I...I..I, can feel them sucking the juice out of my eyeballs. Suck, suck, suck, suck, suck....gghhoooish!!!"

This is an unusual treatment for rosacea, since we hear complaints from rosaceans about fluorescent lights, there is now a treatment for rosacea using fluorescent light, Klereska®, reported in Clinical Case Reports, that states, "Kleresca® biophotonic platform  utilizing fluorescent  light energy effectively decreased the inflammatory and erythematous reaction common in rosacea subtypes 1, 2, and 3.  Kleresca® may be considered as a single treatment for rosacea, targeting multiple features, or combined with invasive methods for an enhanced normalizing and healing profile of the skin."
