What is Rosacea and How is it Treated?

Rosacea is characterized by semi-permanent or permanent erythema, or redness, of the face. The cheeks, nose and forehead are the most commonly afflicted sites, though ears, scalp, neck and chest can be affected as well. Dr. Vanek and his staff use the Sciton® BBL™ to treat the appearance of rosacea. The laser uses a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin found in veins. As the energy of the laser is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin, the surrounding cells are vaporized, reducing the appearance of the rosacea.
