At La Fontaine Aesthetics we have various treatments available for rosacea. The most popular treatment used is the Diolite laser or the Photofacial.
The Diolite laser is a 532nm wavelength laser that is used to treat blood vessels of the face (telangiectasias) and superficial spider veins on the legs. The Diolite also removes cherry spots from the cheeks, neck and arms. (see below before and after; rosacea treatment results)
Hemoglobin in the blood vessel absorbs the laser’s energy and this heats up the vessel, which causes thermocoagulation (clogging) of the blood, leading to fibrosis of the vessel and eventual resorption.
Treatments usually last 20 minutes with minimal discomfort like a snapping rubber band. Sometimes there is a mild redness or scabbing of the area after treatment. Typically, 2 or 3 treatments are needed for optimal treatment.
