Rosacea and Redness The persistent redness and flushing from Rosacea on the cheeks, forehead and nose can progress to more intense redness and an acne-like rash if left untreated. This chronic skin condition is more common in women than men and typically develops between ages 30 and 50. Rosacea can be intensified by a variety of factors, including sun exposure, heat, physical exertion, certain types of food, drugs, alcohol and stress. In addition to topical treatments, Intense Pulsed Light or laser therapy can offer you more options to improve this condition. Treatment Options DenaVe: The DenaVe is the first compact laser to use the same wavelength as a pulsed dye laser, (the leading treatment for vascular lesions for decades) but with a few crucial differences. The DenaVe can function in either continuous or pulsed modes allowing it to treat most skin issues with a higher success rate. The DenaVe also has less risk and side effects than previous dye lasers.
