IPL therapy is not for the meek. Have you ever stretched a rubber band to its limits, then started to grab him repeatedly all over your face? Yowhee! The first thing you need to know about an IPL therapy treatment is that it can hurt! It is highly recommended that you use the numbing cream prior to any ILP therapy or WARNING ~ each zap is going to hurt.

So what is a treatment IPL intensive pulse light ” How?

The small rectangular-shaped wand, rather like an ingenious flashlight with a small vacuum cleaner type hose attached to a big huge machine that hums merrily on the floor behind, zaps the targeted area of the skin when a button is pressed. You get a little dark opaque glasses to protect your eyes before a thick layer of nice cold gel is applied to the skin as protection before any zapping.

The zapping is followed immediately by a flash of bright light and a sense of fitting into the skin. Depending on your pain tolerance and if you decided to use the numbing cream, the rupture may feel like a rubber band stretched to its large "limits then launched against your skin, Yeow!

If your skin has been numbed, zap the movie feels like a tiny bit of a finger. The discomfort is tolerable, but trust me, the numbing cream is the way to go … Why be uncomfortable?

IPL treatments work?

Intensive Care pulse of light are used for a variety of skin conditions, skin tightening and hair removal, depending on the wavelength of the laser.

For photorejuvenation, IPL treatment is used to fix the damaged areas of skin as a result of hyperpigmentation. IPL treatment is extremely effective in getting rid of age spots rosacea, and red, blotchy skin, really.

Professional laser treatments facial delivers instant gratification to improve skin tone, although there are new options for home facial laser treatments that are promising. Did you know that three to four laser treatments at home are widely regarded as a professional equal treatment?

After an IPL therapy treatment, your face can be a little swollen in places and you will probably notice some spots ranging from minor redness for small brown spots. Instead of being horrified, rejoice! This is evidence that the treatment is working effectively.

You will notice that the areas on your skin that discolor the most are the areas where you will see once again that improves the color fades in a week or so. The discoloration can be significant enough that if you look at your skin in a mirror, he appears as his face was dotted with little spots of mud. This is an excellent sign that all the age spots and damaged areas of the skin will disappear when the skin recovers from treatment.

It is also recommended by some experts in IPL therapy treatment to a facial peel a week or so after the treatment is useful for getting rid of the discoloration.

IPL treatments are effective "in improving appearance?"

Although the results are visible immediately after the first treatment, several IPL treatments (which are not cheap by the way), are usually necessary to eradicate all the age spots, sun damaged skin, spider veins and rosacea.

However, the final results are simply amazing! Age spots, GONE! Spider veins across the bridge of his nose, GONE! cheeked, GONE! Discoloration under the eye, GONE! It is truly amazing to see all the damaged areas of stubborn skin literally disappear.

Acne Rosacea in Adults

There are some interesting facts about rosacea in adults.  As the article states, the answer to the cure for rosacea is in stopping the triggers which result in a rosacea flare up.

Acne Rosacea in Adults – Is It Curable?
 by: Bill Wilson

Thought you finally outgrew the days of bad skin and pimples? Well, think again! Many adults suffer from acne in their late twenties and thirties, even those that had never experienced the problem in adolescence. There are generally two types of adult acne – the more common form called Acne Vulgaris, and the more rare form called Acne Rosacea.

It is estimated that up to 85% of the American population between the ages of 12 to 24 years of age have suffered from some form of Acne Vulgaris. However, only about 5% of the population, or 13 million people, experience the aggravation and "rosy" cheeks of Acne Rosacea.

Acne Rosacea is a skin condition that is generally restricted to the face and eyes. It generally affects people between the ages of 30 to 60 years old. The condition is characterized by pimples, redness, and broken blood vessels.

At the onset, a person’s cheeks may tend to blush or flush very easily. However, as the rosacea develops further, redness will be noticeable around the nose area, and then extend over the remainder of the face. An extreme case might experience enlarged oil glands in the nose that can lead to an enlarged and bulbous red nose.

For those suffering from this condition, almost 50% will have issues extending to their eyes. Eye symptoms may include burning and tearing, redness, inflamed eyelids, or a scratchy feeling of something in the eyes.

Acne Rosacea is not medically dangerous, but is also incurable. The good news is that it can be controlled with treatment. The goal of the treatments is to minimize the symptoms and reduce sensitivity of the skin and eyes.

The first step in determining a treatment regimen is to identify possible "triggers", which will be different for each individual. Acne Rosacea generally flares-up when an affected person is exposed to certain environmental or dietary conditions. Some common "triggers" may include hot baths, exercise, wind, cold weather, and certain skin products. This is by no means a comprehensive list.

The key to relief is to identify those conditions which tend to aggravate your Rosacea. Easier said then done, you say? Not really.

The National Rosacea Society recommends that you maintain a symptom diary. The purpose of your diary is to record what was eaten or the conditions immediately prior to the onset of a Rosacea flare-up. Over a few weeks time, you should start to see a pattern form that will give you insight into your own "triggers". Of course, once you have these "triggers" identified, you can avoid these conditions by modifying your lifestyle or eating habits.

Other factors can also contribute to the exacerbation of Rosacea and should be avoided if at all possible. These factors include: avoiding direct sunlight, reducing stress, avoiding long workouts or exertion in hot weather, and limiting spicy foods and hot beverages.

Besides avoiding known "triggers", symptoms can be treated with oral or topical antibiotics. Other medications similar to vitamin A are utilized in more extreme cases and are only available through your dermatologist. Also, laser surgery is available as a treatment alternative for reducing enlarged tissue on the nose and improving overall physical appearance.

Attacking rosacea with the Tanda Skin System

Wrong Acne Cosmetics Can Cause Further Problems

Acne is often misdiagnosed. People who suffer from Rosacea often think they have acne but they are two distinct conditions which require different treatments. Using the wrong skin care acne cosmetics on Rosacea will often cause your skin to get worse.

Glycolic Acid-Acne Cure Or Cause

If you suffer from acne Rosacea, which is really not acne despite its name, a properly qualified dermatologist will strongly advise against having this face peel treatment. You’ll have the best results if you treat your acne hlistically.

Foods To Eat For Rosacea

The redness caused by rosacea is brought on by a spike in the sugar levels in the blood system and high calorie carbohydrates such as bread and pasta as the body burns these up to create sugar.  In other words, high energy foods or those foods which will add fat to the body are not a good idea.

To stem the tide of rosacea, you should try to reduce food intake which reduces the heat or calories burned and the body is then causes the body to be colder.  Since there is less heat in the body, there is a less redness in the face caused by dialation of the blood vessels.  In order to give your body the fuel it needs to sustain life, this means eating at least three small meals per day and supplementing it with a snack to limit the face from becoming fluish. 

Foods to eat for rosacea include plenty of fresh vegetable, fruit, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Cherries, blue berries, and blackberries also help as they as are vascular constrictors therefore reducing redness. Fish and checken are preferred as oppsed to red meat and they are easier for the body to digest. Another great form of protein is tofu which also has cooling qualities.

Cooked foods are better than raw, because cooked food is easier to digest and causes les "dampness".  The Chinese call it "dampness" because the processing of foods and the transformation of fluids does not occur adequately. Seaweed elimnates dampness and is also healthy for the skin. There are many other foods that are also fine for rosacea , so just try understand that some may aggrevate the condition.  Justmake sure to avoid the harmful ones.

It is best to avoid all hot foods and drinks until they have cooled to body temperature or cooler. The body not will sweat and become flush with cooloer foods. If you want to drink coffee, tea, or a soft drink, it is best to refrigerate them first. 

It is also helpful to drink 10-12 glasses of water daily between meals, and no drinks with your meals. This keeps the system flushed of impurities. Chew your food to a cream before swallowing which will helps speed digestion. Take small bites, chew thoroughly, and eat slowly so as not to strain the digestive system.

For many, the correct diet for rosacea can improve their condition, but most sufferers will need medical treatment for further relief. However, the right diet for rosacea can significantly decrease these symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

Laser Treatments for Rosacea

The Rosacea And Wrinkle Cure

Do you suffer from wrinkles, rosacea, age spots or large facial pores? If you do there is light at the end of the tunnel. With today’s advances in cosmetic lasers and light technology these conditions can be treated in a very fast, safe, painless and effective fashion.

Patients seek treatment that offers a return to a more youthful appearance through restoration of even color and smoothness, relief from pigmentary sun damage, and the redness and flushing associated with rosacea. In addition, this patient group requires treatments that are short and pain-free, and allow immediate return to all activities.

Following more than 20 years of treatment of vascular lesions using the pulsed dye laser, a new laser-like intense pulsed light (IPL) device was developed that treats these conditions with success and answers the essential lifestyle criteria when used in a carefully administered program. This new IPL skin rejuvenation technique called Photo Facial now has a clinical history of many treatments with excellent patient success.

IPL differs from laser light in that, rather than monochromatic single wavelength, IPL emits a non coherent, broad spectrum light. To customize the light energy delivery for a given procedure, the operator employs a light guide, of designated wavelength, below which the spectrum is selectively eliminated.

The IPL system, as used in the Photo Facial procedure, conforms to the principle of selective photothermolysis. For dilated vessels, as seen in patients with sun damage and rosacea, the light energy with high absorption by hemoglobin and oxyhemaglobin reaches the dermal capillary bed and selectively destroys the abnormal vessels.

The operator controls all aspects of the light pulse, including cutoff wavelength (nm), energy level (Joules/cm2), pulse duration (milliseconds), pulse pattern (single, double, or triple), and delay time between pulses (milliseconds). This allows for precise control of light energy, which in this procedure is utilized for customization for skin type, procedure progress, and other variables. All controls are computer driven.

Rosacea is a chromic skin disorder affecting the face, characterized by redness and telangiectasias, and is punctuated by episodes of inflammation with papules, pustules, and swelling. The underlying causes of rosacea have not been elucidated yet. There are four basic stages through which rosacea sufferers may progress: pre-rosacea, mild, moderate, and severe forms. Pre rosacea refers to the stage where a person flushes or blushes to a stimulus, but returns immediately to normal when the stimulus is removed. The progression of pre-rosacea to bouts of flushing and blushing that do not dissipate for hours or days is now considered to be directly related to micro vascular dysfunction or damage. In support of this, leading dermatologists Dr Neumann and Dr Frithz recently reported that biopsies of vascular lesions from rosacea patients demonstrated moderate to severe damage of endothelial and smooth muscle cells. In addition, these same biopsies showed evidence of abnormal fusion of capillaries and angiogenesis. Taken together, rosacea-related alterations in endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle, formation of new inflammatory shunt vessels, and angiogenesis could explain why the rosacea-related red face, flushing, and blushing worsens over time. In effect, it is plausible that alterations in micro vascular structure and function allow for more intense bouts of blood flow and inflammation, resulting in even more micro vascular damage — a vicious and progressive cycle. Therefore, therapy should be centered around the removal of damaged and dysfunctional micro vessels such that new thicker walled micro vessels with normal plump endothelial cells are laid down. Previous treatment of the acute inflammatory episodes have consisted of avoidance of heat, cold, sunlight, alcohol, and stress. Physicians have used tetracycline’s, dapsone, erythromycin, chloramphenicol, metridonazole, clonidine and Accutane with limited success. Topical treatments with antibiotics, sulfa preparations, and topical steroids have also been used. Indeed, steroid use ultimately compounds the problem by causing more reddening, flaring, and atrophy. None of these treatments remove the abnormal vessels. Electrocautery treats only those larger visible vessels, and not without pain, bleeding, and frustration of both practitioner and patient.

It is extremely rare for an IPL patient to experience purpura. Following treatment, the patient may have mild redness and swelling overnight, but daily activities are not affected, and many patients can return to work within a few hours.

IPL has demonstrated an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reduction in pore size, possibly due to new collagen deposition in the dermis. This technique is not effective for treatment of sagging skin which is normally treated surgical techniques. IPL has also been used effectively to treat psoriasis of the face, to reduce erythematic following laser skin resurfacing, and to treat acne scarring.

The Photo Facial technique is a proprietary treatment protocol. It consists of a series of IPL treatments, usually five to six treatments over a period of 4 months. The IPL is performed on the full face.

Two-hundred patients with rosacea were chosen randomly by Omlas and evaluated to determine the overall success with the IPL. Patient satisfaction was high with dramatic improvements. The results of this treatment have been truly remarkable. The most difficult patients to treat were those with Fitzpatrick skin type I who have a long history of sun exposure. In these patients, connective tissue is so fragile that IPL parameters selected for optimal relief of redness may damage the skin, with higher incidence of purpura, swelling, and blistering. In such cases, sub optimal parameters must be used early in treatment until the connective tissue supporting the dermal architecture is strengthened and the target tissue is reduced in size. The standard five treatment program is usually extended in this patient group.

Working with the constraints of the lifestyles of active working patients requiring brief, relatively pain-free facial treatments with no downtime, the IPL skin rejuvenation technique provides superior cosmetic results. Specifically, the treatment offers relief from the redness and flushing symptoms of rosacea, improved smoothness and texture of facial skin, remove age spots, restoration of even color, and a dramatic reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Rosacea – Do You Have It?

How Can We Know That We Suffer From Rosacea?

Rosacea is a serious disease which can bring severe complications if it is left untreated. However, rosacea has specific symptoms which, in many cases, can’t be easily identified and is often mistaken for some other conditions with similar symptoms, such as lupus or acne. Rosacea may appear as an irritation of the skin and the face, which can become sensitive and red causing great discomfort. It is considered that there is an important connection between rosacea and headaches due to the blood vessels.

Some of the most known symptoms of rosacea include:

The face and skin become red and sensitive. The facial redness appears because of broken blood vessels which usually expand due to the prolonged exposure to the sun and to the dehydrating effects of alcohol.
The most common areas where rosacea may occur are the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead. Men usually tend to have this infection on the nose but in many cases it may appear on the neck or upper chest.

Rosacea produces small pimples on the red areas of the skin, pimples which have black and whiteheads and are diferent than the olnes produced by acne.
Another symptom of rosacea are the swollen bumps on the nose. In the severe cases, rosacea may lead to rhinophyma, an irritation of the nose.

On the face may appear tiny, thin red lines (telangiectasia) which look like butterflies or spider webs and are caused by the blood vessels breaking. However, rosacea may affect the eyes too and most of the people who suffer from this disease can expect eye irritation and discomfort.
In this case, the eyes get irritated, becoming red and dry, and the vision may become impaired. Other symptoms include, crusted mucus, tearing, and feelings of burning and itching.
The irritation might extend to the eyelids, in turn, becoming swelled, dry and flaky.

An Alternative Treatment Rosacea – Honey

Treating Acne With Manuka Honey

Manuka Honey has been used as a topical agent to treat a wide range of skin problems, including infected wounds, burns, eczema, ringworm, etc. It has recently been gaining worldwide recognition for its ability to draw moisture out of bacterial cells, killing even the most resilient forms of infectious bacteria, including MRSA. It is now recognized that Manuka Honey also has the ability to draw impurities out of the skin, unclogging pores and clearing acne breakouts. It penetrates the blocked follicle, kills the bacteria that cause acne and helps to unblock the follicle allowing the built up infection to be released. This leaves a sterile clear follicle which heals quickly, reducing or even preventing scars from forming.

Independent studies have shown that Manuka Honey reduces inflammation and promotes the healing process. Unlike ingredients found in many acne products, Manuka Honey has a very hydrating effect on the skin. It is a known fact that hydrated skin heals better and faster than dry skin. Manuka Honey is regarded as a natural moisturizer. Since it’s a natural ingredient and an anti-irritant, Manuka Honey doesn’t aggravate sensitive skin, which is common among acne sufferers.

skin care acne clear rosacea

Manuka Honey is known for its effectiveness as an antimicrobial agent. This makes it useful for treating acne breakouts because it prevents bacteria from growing. The acidic environment of honey is not an ideal environment for bacterial growth. Honey is also low in protein which deprives bacteria of nitrogen, an element needed for bacteria to grow. With infection-causing bacteria eliminated, redness associated with acne is also eliminated. In addition, Manuka Honey’s anti-inflammatory properties help to eliminate inflamed tissue that may be causing pain or discomfort.

A New York-based manufacturer of skin care products called Honeymark has combined the formulation of a powerful acne cream with the potent healing properties of active Manuka Honey. Honeymark’s Acne Cream contains a medical-grade Manuka Honey that quickly goes to work on pimples yielding immediate results.

"Manuka Honey’s antibacterial properties penetrating deeply into the epidermis, killing bacteria and relieving blocked follicles," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. "The moist healing environment created by Manuka Honey allows new skin to grow flush with the surface of the skin which prevents scarring or skin deformity in more serious cases of acne."
