Rosacea Treatment

Currently, there is no cure for Rosacea. However, there are many treatment options that can improve the signs and symptoms of Rosacea.


Broad-spectrum sunblock application is the first crucial step. SPF 50+ and PA +++ is highly recommended to protect against UVA and UVB rays.

Topical Rosacea Cream

Azelaic acid, which is one of the active ingredients in our Anti Blemish Formula that has been proven in research studies to treat both rosacea and pustular acne which may occur together with rosacea.

Rosacea Laser Treatment

Pro Yellow Rosacea Laser

The Quadrostar Pro-Yellow Laser is engineered in Germany and is a newer and improved version of the commonly used Dual-Yellow laser.

Using a special wavelength of 577nm, the Pro-Yellow Laser effectively targets and treats vascular skin conditions like Rosacea, Telangiectasia and Post Inflammatory Erythema.

The yellow laser is highly absorbed by red blood cells (Hemoglobin) found in blood vessels, allowing it to quickly target, shrink and remove the small red blood vessels (Telangiectasia) that cause facial redness in Rosacea.

It also promotes collagen growth and has an overall tightening, brightening and rejuvenating effect on skin.

Pro Yellow Rosacea Laser

Picosecond Laser Gold Toning 595nm Rosacea Laser

Like the Pro Yellow Laser, the 595nm Pico “Gold” Laser uses a different wavelength (595nm vs 577nm) to target red blood cells (Hemoglobin) in blood vessels safely and effectively.

The reduction in size and number of facial blood vessels improves and reduces the symptoms of Rosacea.

Is there downtime with laser treatments?

Mild redness may be experienced for several hours after Rosacea laser treatment. There is no scabbing or peeling.
