Let’s explore PDL therapy - a revolutionary treatment that can effectively manage the symptoms of rosacea. So, pull up a chair and read on!
What is PDL therapy?
Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) therapy is a medical treatment used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including rosacea. This therapy uses a concentrated beam of light that targets and constricts the blood vessels that cause inflammation and redness on the skin. By reducing the blood flow to the affected area, PDL therapy can significantly reduce redness and relieve the symptoms of rosacea.
The benefits of PDL therapy for treating rosacea:
One of the main advantages of PDL therapy is that it has minimal side effects and is a non-invasive treatment, which means that patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. PDL therapy is also an effective treatment option for people who do not respond well to other rosacea treatments such as topical and oral medications.
How does PDL therapy work?
During treatment, the dermatologist will use a hand-held device that delivers a concentrated beam of light to the affected area. The procedure is usually painless and lasts for 20-30 minutes, depending on the severity of the condition. Following the treatment, some patients may experience slight redness or swelling, but this usually resolves within a few hours.
What skin type is ideal for PDL?
Also known as V Beam and Cynosure, this type of laser treatment uses light that’s pulsed at a specific wavelength to penetrate visible blood vessels and vascular lesions. This is ideal for anyone that has visible broken blood vessels on their cheeks & nose. This laser is also known to help with reducing facial flushing, so if you experience a lot of flushing when doing extraneous activities this might be the best option for you.
This non-invasive treatment is not only safe and effective but also delivers long-lasting results that leave you with clearer, smoother skin. Talk to your dermatologist today and see if PDL therapy is right for you.
