Re: IPL and laser treatment form rosacea

Postby Dr Mark Brewin on Thu Oct 04, 2018 10:57 am

Most private laser clinics do not treat until you are 18 years of age. At our clinic, we treat at all ages as we are part of the NHS who also run a private service. The main consideration is whether you are able to tolerate the pain of the treatment. This is not very painful but it is not insignificant! I would recommend that you seek out a vascular laser such as Pulsed Dye Laser or KTP rather than IPL. IPL is not really strong enough to treat rosacea effectively.
