At HC MedSpa we offer Harmony® AFT pulsed light technology for rosacea treatment. This is the best method to treat rosacea and to reveal a beautifully clear skin complexion.
Rosacea is a condition involving the face that results in a “blush” or redness and progresses from intermittent to consistent. It is associated with prominent blood vessels that are visible on the skin’s surface. This condition affects 1 in 10 people and is more commonly found in men and women over the age of 30. There is not a proven cause of Rosacea, although some believe it to be hereditary, certain weather conditions, lifestyle situations and foods may also have an effect.
Rosacea will worsen the longer it is left untreated. Redness will become even more noticeable, and puss filled bumps (pustules and papules) may appear. Topical creams and antibiotics are solutions that work well for a short period of time. But the issue lies beneath the layers of the skin that is visible, and it’s Laser that will clear the reddening of the skin.
The Harmony AFT works by the laser being placed directly onto the skin and emitting wavelengths of light to target the visible blood vessels just underneath the surface. The heat from the laser works by breaking these vessels down and eventually the vessels collapse. After a course of treatment, they shall altogether disappear. This treatment is effective and works brilliantly to diminish Redness, Rosacea and Broken Capillaries. Our team of highly trained and experienced Aesthetic Therapists will ensure that the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
