It’s good to be happy. And when you’re overly happy, certain effects are formed on your face. One of them is a blush that brings out a healthy glow on your skin. Depending on the reason for that blush, happier, this makes you look younger and vibrant. It looks nice on you for a few minutes, but if you have got that red blush permanently, then there is trouble.
If those areas are always red, you have the rosacea skin condition.
Everyone on Instagram assumed that I had a wicked sunburn and had just come back from scorching deserts. In fact, it makes sense for something to appear in real, but when you look at the same things on your mobile (unless you edit your pics), it looks a little too bad, and the same thing happens to me. It is not the redness; actually, I tried some makeup hacks, so that’s why my face feels like it is on fire.
A good-kid habit is to submit to reality. The truth is I have started taking my rosacea as natural makeup. But that is not enough. I had to explore it and find a cure that works.
But on the flip side, there is not much wrong with having a red face if you are not too worried about this kind of colour. It really is not that big deal. Rather you think of it as the curse of the Celts, you should catch it at a relatively early stage or have it treated immediately with IPL.
I know, I know, another aesthetic term that sets the miracles on your face.
You might have read my previous blog on “Does IPL photo facial really make you younger?” which reveals enough things that IPL does many other things on your face. This is simply a nemesis for ageing signs and rosacea. It’s Intense pulsed light…
Let me ask you something: If I could reveal the secret to vanishing rosacea outbreaks to such a level that you could almost forget that you even had the rosacea on your face, would you consider IPL the best cure? Well, this 5-minute blog is going to do that.
So read on if you really need to take control of this red land on your face.
Disclaimer: One thing you need to understand about treating rosacea is that there’s no all magic pill. It doesn’t matter what the IPL advertising tells you, trust me, this is absolutely not a “get your skin rid of rosacea in a day” kind of thing. The thing is, this is systematic, tried, and tested technology, which will drop both the intensity of the flare-ups and frequency of rosacea attacks in 6-8 sessions to a level close to zero.
IPL, a gift from technology
Facial creams and moisturisers are among those skincare products often used by rosacea sufferers in dealing with their condition. This is primarily because a permanent treatment for this condition that affects both men and women who are ageing from 30 to 60 years and who have Caucasian descent has not yet been found.
Despite this, there is one particular product of technology that has been proven by research to treat the condition at the very least temporarily. Using IPL for rosacea can be the best way to treat the said skin condition.
For those with Rosacea, IPL treatment can be very effective. It is a relatively new technology that uses something called dual-mode filtering. Combined with other technologies, this provides a safe and effective treatment, especially compared to other older hair removal systems. Your dermatologist, medical specialist, or aesthetic doctor will be able to perform the treatment.
A walk-in-the-park like treatment
The treatment has a very simple procedure. Here are the steps.
- Topical anaesthesia is applied 10 to 30 minutes before the treatment. This is done to avoid physical facial sensations that could potentially make the patient uncomfortable during the treatment.
- A pair of eye covers are given to the patient. These covers will serve as eye protectors to cover their light-sensitive eyes. Both the patient and the person doing the procedure should wear eye protectors.
- The operator then adjusts the settings of the IPL machine based on your skin type and continues with the procedure. When you start to feel a snapping sensation on the surface of your facial skin, this means that the treatment has already started.
It is just normal to feel a painful sensation on your face right after the procedure. You will also notice that your face has become redder. You must also know that this procedure involves the aid of macrolide antibiotics. These antibiotics prevent the blood vessels from growing again after the treatment because of their anti-angiogenesis properties. These after-effects will just get better over time.
One of the safest cures for rosacea
IPL for rosacea just tells us that we are on our way to discovering and developing a permanent treatment for rosacea that has been bugging millions of people worldwide. This temporary yet effective way of treating and controlling this skin condition is truly a gift from technology to those people who suffer from it. With so many skincare treatments out there, this one is a very safe one to consider.
Wait a minute! Did you say “painless”?
As the name suggests, pulses of light are produced by the equipment used. These pulses are of short duration, and therefore there is no discomfort felt by the patient. When you visit an aesthetic doctor and undergo the treatment, you are likely to experience a slight irritation that is somewhat 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 the hairs found in males are thicker than those found on female bodies.
It should also be noted that when sensitive areas are treated, such as the chest or the face, 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.
Alright, I know it’s painless; now, who do I get this treatment from?
Although the term ‘aesthetic doctor’ is still relatively new, it helps to know that these are professional people who have undergone specialised training to render the services 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 struck 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 certainly are some good reasons to consider an aesthetic doctor from Expert when you want to undergo some body contouring or take care of skin problems.You may have a passion for beauty. Or maybe you just like the idea of earning income from working with your hands (not a bad thing). Whatever your reason, Chelsford is an excellent place for you to improve your skills and gain a qualification in the cosmetic treatment industry.
