Farah Edds, PA-C

Hello and welcome to this week’s Trillium Creek Dermatology and Surgery Center’s Podcast. My name is Farah Edds and I’m a Physician Assistant here at Trillium Creek Dermatology.  

Would you be surprised to know that The National Rosacea Society estimates that 16 million Americans currently suffer from the signs and symptoms of rosacea? For those who’ve experienced the redness and inflammation, particularly on the face, due to Rosacea, stay tuned to learn more about our innovative Aerolase Laser Treatment.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that is characterized by inflammation and redness on the face. Bumps, pustules, scratchy eyes, and dilated blood vessels on the face are other common symptoms of this condition. Although it mainly affects the face, it is occasionally possible for rosacea to appear on other parts of the body such as the legs, arms, chest, neck and scalp.

The exact cause of rosacea is not clear, although it does tend to run in families, which suggests a genetic link of some kind. It is also thought that the body’s immune response to certain stimulae plays a part.

Aerolase Laser

​The Aerolase LightPod Neo® is a uniquely gentle and versatile laser device, which is safely and effectively used for a broad range of common aesthetic skin treatments, including acne, melasma, nail fungus, pigmented spot removal, scar revision, skin rejuvenation, veins and vessels, warts, and of course, rosacea. The Aerolase Laser works by using laser energy that passes through the epidermis, and selectively targets specific tissue structures without affecting the surrounding skin. 

Many patients see results immediately after one treatment and further improvement with subsequent treatments. Other therapies can take up to 90 days to show improvement. You also avoid the negative side effects associated with many popular, systematic drug therapies.​ After treatment, You can immediately return to normal activities.

Rosacea Aerolase Treatment

Rosacea lesions tend to subside after the first or subsequent treatments. Regardless of the treatment response, recurrence is common and can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors. It is important to understand that rosacea is a chronic condition that can only be controlled rather than cured. Individual results will vary, but can depend on the body surface that is affected. While some patients may see relief in just one treatment, other patients may need a number of treatments to achieve their desired result.

For peace of mind, getting a confident diagnosis of your rosacea is most important so that your Aerolase treatment can be optimized to treat it effectively. Call us today to schedule a consultation with one of our providers today!
