Facial veins and rosacea eliminated
Problems with facial veins and the flaring redness of rosacea are common for a great number of women. It used to be part of that collection of woes under the heading of women's problems. 'High colour' as it is often called, was something some women had 'to suffer'. Now we know very differently.
It's a condition that most often affects fair skinned people.
Appearance is important in today's world, like it or not, and it is important for our public image but also for our own self-confidence.
If those who suffer don't have to endure unsightly thread veins and the flushing and blemishes that come with rosacea and would rather look their best, then why not do something about it?
Help is here. The answer is here. The treatment for facial thread veins and rosacea utilises Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Brief pulses of hot white light pass harmlessly through the skin to the areas of redness.
The colour breaks up as the blood vessels expire immediately. The vessels are replaced by new veins or capillaries which are healthy and faultless.

The answer usually requires more than one treatment although impressive results can be noticed right from the start. From the first session, the redness fade, the skin tone improves and texture looks so much healthier. From the beginning, the overall appearance of the complexion is enhanced dramatically.
Comfortable, painless, effective
The IPL treatment is comfortable and painless and most effective too for problem veins of the face, weary capillaries, broken veins or thread veins, and spider naevi.
Sometimes, when weary veins exist in isolation, the remedy can be found in a solitary session. But usually the problem needs a course of treatments, sometimes as many as five. However, you will notice progress each time for dramatic improvement is seen with every session.
Rosacea is a chronic vascular and skin disorder that causes redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Symptoms often come and go. For some people, to feel rosacea appearing causes acute embarrassment which can make the condition look worse, or certainly feel so to the sufferer.
The reappearances can be caused by almost any number of conditions, such as sun and wind exposure, stress, hot weather, spicy foods, even a small intake of alcohol, and sometimes just moving from one temperature to another. These causes may vary enormously from sufferer to sufferer.
The treatment for the rosacea sufferer is called a 'fotofacial'. These fotofacials are performed with the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).
Although IPL uses light, it is not a laser. The area affected by rosacea receives a series of pulses of light. Just how many of the pulses are applied, and the number of treatments, depends on the severity of the condition.
Worst cases would be treated with a maximum of five treatments, performed at three to four week intervals.
A treatment takes a little less than half an hour. There is certainly no pain, but more sensitive people may feel a mild amount of discomfort which is very brief. Usually, your skin would hardly notice that a treatment was underway. If anything is felt, the sensation subsides very quickly.
In the minutes following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed. Tiny capillaries and any sun-damage brown spots may appear darker. The changes fade almost immediately, or may take from a few hours to a day or two, depending on the sensitivity of the skin.
Initially, the treatment will begin a gradual decrease in the redness, and in the intensity of the flushing and dilating of capillaries.
Too much sun
If the skin suffers from visible ageing as a result of too much exposure from the sun, it becomes smoother. Fine wrinkles become shallower. Pore size is reduced and sun spots fade.
For rosacea sufferers, attacks or breakouts of the inflammation decreases and soon ends.
Rosacea is more difficult to answer if the form predominates in flushing and blushing. But the treatment does begin an immediate improvement, and people find that they no longer flush or blush so easily, and when they do it is markedly red much less severely than before, and passes much more quickly, too.
Another very satisfactory change that comes from the treatment is the end of the old discomfort that is felt by some when the cheeks flush.
With the first treatment, the skin feels smoother and develops a much more even tone. Of course, improvements are gradual and become more noticeable after each treatment.
Generally, for the best results between three and five treatments are necessary. Some people benefit from additional treatments.
