Tired of Living With Rosacea? Laser Genesis Is Here to Help

If you've ever noticed redness on your face that doesn't seem to go away, you could be living with a common skin condition called rosacea.

Rosacea causes skin inflammation, leading to redness, bumps, and swelling. Although it often affects your face, rosacea can also pop up on other areas of your body, including your chest and back.

For many people, rosacea is embarrassing and leads to low self-esteem and difficulty going out in public. However, the skin condition is highly responsive to noninvasive laser treatments.

At Flushing Medical Spa in Queens, New York, Dr. QiLi Li offers Laser Genesis treatment for various skin conditions, including rosacea. Dr. Li is a board-certified OB/GYN specializing in medspa treatments for various skin and body conditions.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin problem caused by inflammation in the skin on your face and body. The problem causes notably red skin on your nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin, although it can sometimes affect your ears, chest, and back.

There are several forms of rosacea, each producing various symptoms. The four main types of rosacea include:

  • Papulopustular
  • Ocular
  • Phymatous
  • Erythematotelangiectatic

Rosacea usually occurs after age 30 and is most common in women with fair skin. However, anyone can suffer from rosacea, affecting more than 14 million people yearly.

Rosacea symptoms vary but often include redness, flushing, bumps or pimples, and blood vessels visible under your skin. Some people also experience skin thickening, swelling, and burning, dry skin from rosacea.

Understanding treatment options

Many rosacea treatments are available, ranging from simple skin creams to surgical procedures. The treatment you need depends on your symptoms and the type of rosacea you live with.

Dr. Li takes a holistic approach to rosacea treatment, offering various remedies, including the Laser Genesis system. However, you may opt for simple skin treatments first, including oral medications and topical creams to reduce redness and minimize rosacea flare-ups.

Rosacea can be persistent, so Dr. Li offers the Laser Genesis system to provide long-term, noticeable results without surgery.

How does Laser Genesis work?

The Laser Genesis system is a noninvasive procedure Dr. Li uses for various skin problems, including wrinkles, fine lines, and redness associated with rosacea.

Laser Genesis is a comfortable procedure that requires no downtime. During the procedure, Dr. Li uses a specialized laser that heats the cells within your skin.

The heat generated by the laser creates microdamage in your cells, causing a healing response in the form of increased collagen production. Collagen is necessary for firm, plump skin and a more youthful appearance.

The Laser Genesis system also treats redness from rosacea by constricting the blood vessels under your skin with gentle heat. Less blood flow under your skin reduces the appearance of discoloration and uneven skin tones.

The procedure is quick, usually lasting less than a half hour, and you can go about your day as planned. You may require several treatments for optimal results, with noticeable changes occurring within several weeks of the procedure.

Is Laser Genesis right for me?

You may opt for the Laser Genesis treatment if you've tried other forms of treatment but still suffer from rosacea symptoms.

If you've attempted oral medications or topical skin creams without significant results, Dr. Li suggests laser therapy to reduce the redness associated with rosacea.

You should also consider the Laser Genesis system if you're looking for a quick way to reduce your symptoms without downtime or side effects. It's a great option to increase your confidence without going under the knife for cosmetic surgery.

Ultimately, Dr. Li evaluates your skin and symptoms along with your goals to determine if Laser Genesis treatment is proper for your specific needs.
