IPL Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea is a skin condition which usually occurs on the face. It can affect anyone and all skin types but is commonly found in fair skinned women over 30, although it can affect men. Learn more about the causes and triggers of rosacea here.

Rosacea cannot be cured but IPL treatment can help control the symptoms. It can get worse if it’s not treated.

What to expect at your IPL Rosacea treatment

Rosacea skincare consultation

At your initial consultation one of our skincare experts will examine you and discuss the treatment options with you. You don’t have to decide on your treatment at this initial appointment as it’s important to take your time.

If we recommend IPL treatment for your rosacea, we usually suggest a course of treatments, usually between 3 and 6 sessions, with appointments typically 1 month apart. We may also suggest future maintenance treatments to reduce signs and symptoms of rosacea. Let us know if you’re planning a holiday in the near future as it’s important to avoid the sun during IPL treatment.

For your well-being a patch test is required 48 hours before your first IPL treatment and we cannot treat you without this test.

At your IPL rosacea appointment

Each session only lasts around 15 minutes, with the IPL element only taking a few minutes.

After removing any makeup, the skin not being treated is covered with cotton wool pads, and you have protective eye goggles.

Next, we apply a gel (similar to the one used in ultrasound scans) to the exposed skin we are treating. IPL is usually described as uncomfortable rather than painful and is often likened to a rubber band snapping against the skin for a second. The whole IPL treatment only lasts a few minutes.

After your IPL rosacea treatment

We gently remove the gel and your skin will look at its reddest and brightest immediately after the treatment. This soon calms down, and most clients find they experience less redness on their second and subsequent treatments.

We then apply a soothing gel and a sunscreen. Avoiding sun exposure for the duration of the IPL treatment course is essential, so always wear a high SPF, and if you are outside we recommend you wear a hat and seek out the shade.

After the first IPL treatment most clients notice a reduced redness from the rosacea a few hours after the appointment.
