Pulse Light Clinic has over 15 years experience in Rosacea treatments in London.
We have an in-house nutritional therapist, working at our clinic for the past 12 years, specialising in rosacea and skin complaints. Nutritional consultations are available as well as food intolerance & vitamin deficiency testing. Effective Rosacea treatment is not just about administering IPL. Understanding your triggers and how Rosacea affects you, plays an important role in effective symptom relief. We also know that trying a new treatment is a big step.
At Pulse Light Clinic, we are privileged to see both the visible and positive emotional effects that good Rosacea treatment have on our patients. Pulse Light Clinic is one of the most experienced Rosacea clinics in the UK. We have many clients who travel a far distance to receive treatments with us and are very happy with their results.
Rosacea is a medical condition where the veins in the face enlarge giving the face a red appearance. It typically begins after the age of thirty, though it can start before, as redness on the cheeks nose, chin or forehead which at first will just come and go but as time passes the redness tends to get darker and more chronic. Left untreated veins start to become visible, bumps and pimples start to develop and in more severe cases the nose can become swollen and bumpy and the eyes irritated, watery and bloodshot.
There is no known medical cure for the condition at this time so treatments available are tackling the symptoms or making lifestyle changes to cut down on the causes of rosacea flare ups. Here at Pulse Light Clinic we do both of these things with our IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment for the symptoms and our nutritional therapist for the lifestyle help. This combination is what makes us so different from other clinics out there and our treatment so effective.
IPL treatments on rosacea work like this: The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the haemoglobin in your blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the haemoglobin resulting in damage to the blood vessel wall. This controlled injury to the blood vessels triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue. New cells then replace the problem area with clearer, better looking skin.
Rosacea Treatments work on:
- Facial redness
- Bumps and pimples
- Lifestyle causes
- Dietary causes
- Men and women
- All skin types
We constantly meet clients who have wasted time and money on poor quality IPL and other rosacea treatments. Medical expertise is vital to the success of IPL treatment, and the problem is there are far too many under qualified practitioners offering IPL and laser treatments for rosacea. Our approach is unlike any other clinic that we know of; we don’t just zap you with a laser and hope for the best.
Our depth of knowledge in IPL combined with our nutritional advice makes us the leading clinic in successfully treating rosacea in London. We advise, treat and assess until we have your treatment fine-tuned for the very best results to ensure a dramatic difference to the appearance and discomfort caused by rosacea. Don’t be put off if you have unsuccessfully tried IPL before. We get dramatic results every time.
You don’t have to suffer the symptoms or the distress that rosacea can cause. At Pulse Light Clinic, we are privileged to see both the visible and emotional effects that good Rosacea treatment has on our patients. Although it is termed incurable, our unique individual approach, perfected over 12 years has minimised symptoms and given Rosacea sufferers back control of their lives.

Rosacea Treatment - Frequently Asked Questions
How does a rosacea treatment plan work?
You will receive a course of IPL treatments targeting the affected area. The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the haemoglobin in your blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the haemoglobin resulting in damage to the blood vessel wall. This controlled injury to the blood vessels triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue. New cells then replace the problem area with clearer, better looking skin.
Concurrently you will receive nutritional/lifestyle help. It stars with our nutritional therapist doing a lifestyle consultation, then food intolerance and vitamin deficiency testing. This will help you understand your triggers and what to avoid. She will help to recommend any dietary changes or supplements that you may need. Putting these into practice you can take control of your rosacea with simple diet and lifestyle changes.
Is there anything I need to do, to be ready for my nutritional consultation?
There are two online questionnaires that need to be filled out a minimum of 3 days before your appointment and the therapist may require you to perform a simple home test or two to complete the analysis. Our nutritional therapist will then analyse your responses, getting any further data within the consultation, followed by an explanation of her findings and recommendations.
Will the rosacea treatments be painful ?
There is some mild discomfort especially in the first treatment, it is sometimes described as similar to having an elastic band pinged against your skin, but as your course of treatments continues you will find it getting more comfortable.
What happens in a single rosacea treatment ?
You will be given some special glasses or eye-pads to protect your eyes, a cool gel is then placed on the area being treated. You will feel the smooth surface of the laser hand piece against your skin during the treatment. At the end of the treatment the gel will be wiped off and the area cleaned with a warm wet cloth. Lastly you will have some moisturiser with sunscreen applied, if there is any swelling you may be given a cold pack to apply for a few minutes.
- How long following an IPL treatment does it take to show improvement ?
Most people need 3-5 treatments spaced about one month apart. You should be able to see some improvement following each treatment but you need the whole course of treatments to see a full effect.
Can I get further lifestyle help from your Rosacea Specialist ?
Yes, those that seek more in depth help from our nutritionist find their results are faster and more long term, with some clients even finding their Rosacea can go into remission. Just ask at reception for further information
