Treatment Options For Rosacea Patients
Written by Dallas Vein Specialists on October 30, 2013
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects men and women and may be mild and episodic to severe and persistent. Dermatologists commonly treat the disorder by advising patients to avoid the things that seem to trigger outbreaks such as stress, heat, alcohol, and some skin products and cosmetics and by the use of sunscreens and medications to restore the skin. Sometimes laser or light treatments are recommended.
At Dallas Vein Specialists we have had good results treating mild to moderate cases using ohmic thermolysis. The device, called VeinGogh, delivers a short burst of heat energy to the tiny dilated blood vessels of the facial skin causing them to instantly disappear. Depending of the extent and severity of the distribution of dilated blood vessels, more than one treatment is usual. Treatments may be spaced about 3 weeks apart and terminated when the patient is satisfied with the appearance.
