Rosacea and redness in the face are gone in a snap with our Broad Band Light (BBL), Pulsed Light (IPL) and Versa Pulsed Laser (VPC). Our treatment for rosacea reduces redness, breakouts, facial veins and red dots.
The Anti-Redness & Rosacea Therapy Advantage
Creams and pills can leave behind tell-tale signs of rosacea: blotchy skin and spider-webby blood vessel patterns. Lasers and pulsed light devices have been the gold standard for removal of unwanted redness and blood vessels since the 1970’s. These tried-and-true therapies leave our patients happy and using fewer products.
Here’s What Anti-Redness & Rosacea Therapy Can Do For You:
- Provide relief for rosacea sufferers
- Minimize breakouts associated with rosacea
- Reduce the appearance of blood vessels on the face
- Remove unwanted and unsightly facial veins
- Limit embarrassing blushing and flushing on the nose and cheeks

What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a condition in which certain facial blood vessels enlarge, giving the cheeks and nose a flushed appearance. Left untreated bumps and pimples can develop and, in severe cases, the nose can become swollen and bumpy from excess tissue/skin.
How will lasers, IPL and BBL (pulsed light) light help me?
We’ll use lasers and pulsed light to improve and potentially eliminate those superficial blood vessels and the blotchy redness from your face, neck and chest. These devices use intense light energy that passes safely through the top layer of skin and is then absorbed and carried by red blood cells inside the vessels. The light energy is changed into heat which then ‘zaps’ and removes the vessels and redness without harming the surrounding skin.
Pulsed light machines are recommended for full face, neck, or chest treatments. We use the vascular laser (VersaPulse) for targeted treatment of more stubborn vessels. You can be seen right in our Frederick, Maryland office for excellent results!
What will my treatment involve?
We’ll see you for a series of sessions during which our physician assistant or nurse pulses over the target area with the laser or pulsed light hand piece.
How long will my treatment take?
The time for each treatment depends on how much surface area is being treated. Treatment for your nose, for example, takes five minutes. Treatment for your entire face takes about thirty minutes.
Will this treatment hurt me?
You may experience mild discomfort in the form of a very quick hot tingle. The sensation is very tolerable, and numbing creams are not necessary.
What happens after each of my treatments?
The areas that you have treated will quickly become red and slightly swollen, like a hive or bug bite. Make-up can be applied immediately after treatments to camouflage redness. The swelling resolves gradually in a few hours to a few days.
Pigmented growths like age spots may become darker and may peel during the first week. Many of the blood vessels are closed (invisible) immediately after treatment. Over the following four to six weeks the vessels start to heal and red lines may reappear. A series of treatments is necessary for permanent removal.
How frequently will I have to come in for treatment?
We’ll wait four to six weeks between your treatments to allow complete healing of the injured vessels.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients will achieve satisfactory long term removal or lightening of vessels with just three treatments. Patients with very thick, long-standing, or dense mesh-like vessels can require more.
How long will the results last for me?
Once a vessel is fully treated, it will not return. You will develop new vessels slowly over time at the same rate as before treatment. Some patients prefer to return as often as every six months for maintenance. Other patients prefer to wait a few years before a touch-up treatment.

What risks can I expect?
- You may experience bruising only if you’re on blood thinners or if you have thin skin. This dark purple spotting resolves slowly over one to two weeks
- If you have numerous vessels treated under the eyes you may experience five to ten days of lower eyelid edema (puffiness)
- There are rare reports of blistering, scabbing, and scarring
- Pigment changes such as hyperpigmentation (darkening) and hypopigmentation (lightening) are rare
- Occasionally, very thick vessels will not respond or will leave a temporary shallow crease when removed
- Some hair reduction may occur in the treated areas
As with any medical or surgical treatment, there is always the chance of unforeseen consequences.
How do I minimize my risks?
- Avoid tanning and you’ll reduce the risk of blistering and pigment abnormalities to less than one percent
- Start treatments when your skin is at its palest
- Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen products, vitamin E, and herbal remedies one week before your treatment in order to avoid the possibility of bruising
- Contact your physician immediately if you get a blister after treatment. Proper management of blisters is essential to prevent scarring
