Rosacea: that permanent flush that rises over your cheeks and nose, resulting in unwanted redness and sometimes even acne-like pimples. It’s a skin condition that affects 415 million people worldwide, triggered by a variety of factors from spicy foods to changing weather.
And, since rosacea is a medical condition that can sometimes be complicated to manage, it’s important to get a clear diagnosis from your doctor, who can help identify what triggers your specific symptoms and determine the best treatment plan for you, which might include LED light therapy.
LED light therapy is a painless, safe and non-invasive treatment that delivers concentrated energy deep into your tissue, enhancing your body’s natural cellular recovery, subsiding active rosacea, and promoting skin rejuvenation.
While LED light is not a cure for rosacea, it can be used to treat skin thickening, reduce redness, and ease discomfort – three of the most bothersome symptoms of this skin condition.
Typically, LED light therapy is used as one component of a comprehensive treatment plan to treat rosacea. It might be prescribed by your doctor in combination with mild chemical peels and/or oral medication.
LED light comes in different wavelengths including red, yellow, and blue, which are each suited to treating different skin concerns. LED light therapy is not the same as laser; it is a very soothing treatment with no side effects.
The light bathes your skin in a soft, warm sensation, targeting deep into the skin cells to heighten their internal functions, stimulate blood flow, induce faster healing, decrease pain, and reduce signs of inflammatory skin conditions.
In a short time, LED light therapy may ease flushing, burning, swelling, and bumps, and can stimulate repair of broken capillaries on the cheeks and nose.
