Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness. More severe cases may be associated with sores that look like acne.
Triggers that can cause facial blushing will aggravate the condition – such as stress, anxiety, extreme temperatures, wind, alcohol, spicy food and caffeine.
Rosacea and broken capillaries on the face respond nicely to laser therapy. The beam of light targets the hemoglobin in the tiny vessels, destroying them.
Dr. O’Malley uses the LightPod Neo laser by Aerolase which provides high power for efficient results but is safe on all skin types. During the treatment, the Neo hand piece does not touch the skin which makes the treatment more comfortable than other lasers.
In accordance with CT state law, Dr. O’Malley administers all laser treatments herself.
Price Range: $175 – $300 per treatment
