IPL Treatment for Rosacea in Orange County
What causes rosacea?
Rosacea is characterized by redness on your face, and is often accompanied by small red bumps. The exact cause of rosacea isn’t known, but there seem to be some factors that make you more likely to develop it. Women with fair skin who have a family history of rosacea are most prone to it. It can be aggravated by hot foods, spicy foods, alcohol, sunlight, stress, and exercise, among other factors.
How is an IPL treatment different from a laser treatment?
IPL treatments are typically less expensive than laser treatments. Both are similar because they use intense blasts of light in order to treat your skin. While lasers produce one concentrated beam, IPL treatments cover a broader area with a range of wavelengths. This makes IPL treatments especially effective for skin issues, when larger areas need to be targeted at one time.
