Laser Treatment for Rosacea
The Rosacea Treatment in Dubai is performed on an outpatient basis with no anesthesia because the procedure is pain-free. During the treatment, a laser device delivers laser energy to the treatment area, and the blood vessels are targeted to reduce the effects of Rosacea.
Before starting the procedure, the laser is set at specific wavelengths. This ensures that only blood vessels and skin tissues absorb the laser. The light entering blood vessels makes them collapse, as a result, the redness, swelling, and thick skin reduces.
