If you have the facial redness associated with Rosacea you might want to consider IPL treatment that an aesthetic doctor will be able to perform for you. There are many different terms to describe doctors these days, and sometimes you are not familiar with the abovementioned one. This is a professionally trained person who performs body contouring treatments, such as Intense Pulsed Light treatment, but who does not make incisions into the skin. This means that they do not perform cosmetic surgeries. They are able to change or otherwise alter what is below the skin by applying a treatment externally. Sometimes the results that they achieve are just as good as those achieved through more invasive techniques, such as cosmetic surgery, or even better.
For those with Rosacea IPL treatment can be very effective. Your dermatologist, medical specialist, or aesthetic doctor will be able to perform the treatment. It is a relatively new technology that makes use of something called dual-mode filtering. Combined with other technologies this provides a safe and effective treatment, especially when compared to other older hair removal systems.
How does IPL treatment work?
As the name suggests pulses of light are produced by the equipment used. These pulses are of a short duration and there before there is no discomfort felt by the patient. Also, there is only a very small risk of non-targeted tissue sustaining any damage during the treatment. When you visit an aesthetic doctor and undergo the treatment you are likely to experience a slight irritation that is something like the discomfort or irritation you feel with minor sunburn. Sometimes blisters can develop however. Unfortunately, men seem to experience a higher level of discomfort but this is because of the fact that the hairs found on males is thicker than the hair found on female bodies.
It should also be noted that when sensitive areas are treated, such as the chest or the face for example, the discomfort experienced has been likened to that felt if those areas were waxed. The good news is that most who have undergone the treatment will tell you that this discomfort disappears very quickly. Also, do not concern yourself with the thought that you will be subjected to ultraviolet components during the treatment, because the light is filtered to remove ultraviolet components. This means that there is no chance of the skin sustaining ultraviolet damage.
Although the term 'aesthetic doctor' is still relatively new, it helps to know that these are professional people who have undergone specialized training to be able to render the services that they provide. When you visit such an individual for IPL treatment, or any one of the other numerous treatments that they offer, you will be stuck by the fact that these are done quickly and conveniently allow you to get back to the business of living without having to take time, sometimes weeks, to recuperate. There are certainly some good reasons to consider an aesthetic doctor when you want to undergo some body contouring or take care of skin problems.
