Medico-aesthetic of the face
Rosacea is the presence of fine blood vessels often located on the cheeks, chin and/or around the nose
These vessels give a reddish appearance to the face. Telangiectasias refers to these small reddish or bluish veins that are found in the facial epidermis but can be found all over the skin (the legs are also a very common site of these small veins).
Rosacea is intimately linked to rosacea and for some dermatologists these two problems represent the same pathology. However, rosacea may have an inflammatory component that requires medical treatment by a general practitioner or dermatologist (antibiotics are sometimes needed). Facial rash represents a variation of these features. It manifests itself in a redness of the face. This rash is often accentuated as in the case of rosacea, by cold, heat, hot food, emotions and alcohol consumption.
Ruby points are small vascular formations that appear with age in some people. They are found all over the skin. What treatments are available at the clinic?
The clinic offers several ways to treat these pathologies:
- Cynergy PDL/Nd:Yag reference laser
- intense pulsed light from the SCIton BBL (Brossard) and Palomar Icon (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu)
- Nd laser:Yag
- sclerosing injections for larger vessels
Frequently Asked Questions
In most cases, one or two treatments will be needed to achieve the anticipated result. But like any treatment, there are several factors that will influence the ending result.
- Severity of the breach
- Personal response to treatment
- Aggressiveness of the treatment(depending on the purpose to look for) and recovery time.
- The treatment causes a small pain that is very well tolerated.
- Complications are extremely rare. No convalescence is usually necessary with the treatment of vascular lesions.
- A little erythema occurs after treatment in most cases. Sometimes transient edema (especially under the eyes) can occur.
- However, laser treatment is most effective when it creates a little purpura (like a small reddish blue). It disappears in a few days.
- Rarely, the treatment will cause superficial burns, crusting, pigmentation changes or scarring.
