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 to 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 for rosacea work like this: The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the hemoglobin in your blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the hemoglobin 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
- Suitable for fair 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 Treatments - Frequently Asked Questions
What is the main cause of rosacea?
The main causes of rosacea can depend on many factors including, food intolerances, stress, genetics, hormones or severe sunburn.
What are the five symptoms of rosacea?
The most well-known Rosacea symptoms are the below; however, you might have identified other less known symptoms, which doesn't mean they are less important.
First, you might evidence that your skin is often blushing or gets flushed easily, whether it's icy or very hot weather.
Other common symptoms are skin sensitivity, inflammation, following discomfort with a burning feeling and itchiness on the face. The appearance of tiny broken blood vessels that create redness is the typical first rosacea sign; additionally, you can notice thickened skin and/or persistent red pustules.
What helps rosacea go away?
The cause of rosacea is still unidentified and at this time there is no cure. However, we can manage rosacea with IPL sessions and a nutritional diet, reducing redness and preventing it getting worse. Regular treatments will help manage rosacea.
What are the types of Rosacea?
Rosacea has four subtypes and symptoms also vary from person to person. Symptoms may include facial blushing and flushing, burning, redness and small red bumps. These may come and go, and so the best way to find an answer is 'if you think you might be developing Rosacea', then visit a rosacea specialist; Pulse Light Clinic offers a free first consultation.
What to expect during Rosacea treatment?
It would be useful if you arrive with no makeup on. We apply a cold gel on the area to be treated. Dark glasses are also provided to protect your eyes from the bright light. The hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. the feeling of the light being applied has frequently been described as a slight sting and sometimes even as having a small rubber band flicked at your skin
During treatment, the glass surface of the IPL hand piece is gently applied to the skin, normally by our trained nurse practitioner. Light is delivered to the skin surface in gradient movements.
IPL treats the damaged superficial layer of the skin while delivering thermal energy to deeper tissue. Clinical studies are now available to measure the effect this energy has on collagen production, which helps firm and tightens the skin.
Why are multiple Rosacea treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions may be recommended every 3 weeks. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
By dividing the full program into several treatments the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk – and, it preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature that people really appreciate.
Does Rosacea get worse as I get older?
Whilst it varies from person to person, and people of all ages can be affected, and whilst it is not predictable, it does tend to gradually get worse as a person gets older, especially if untreated.
Without treatment, it can (and often does) progresses from 'early stages to middle stages' in a year, whilst in the early stages have been identified and treatment commenced, progression could have been prevented.
Which foods should I eat for Rosacea?
Again, there is no simple answer, this is because everyone is different, however, there is no doubt that diet is important. Additionally, some foods act as triggers.
Staff at Pulse Light Clinic have invested time and resources into research relating to diet and Rosacea. Lisa Borg (Dip BCNH) is a qualified Nutritional Therapist and a valued member of the 'Pulse Light Team'.
Because diet is so important, supplements are incorporated into treatment programmes. Vitamin and mineral supplements also help control flare-ups and have been shown as being effective in reducing symptoms; check out our page on 'Rosacea diet'. One of the main reasons why the Pulse Light Clinic gets such good results with treating Rosacea is because they use a combination of diet and IPL.
What are the early signs of Rosacea?
Early signs of Rosacea can be recognised through redness in the area, inflammation of the skin and burning or itching sensations to the area. If you notice these symptoms you can prevent your rosacea from developing any further by taking action.
Does drinking water help Rosacea?
Staying hydrated and having the recommended intake of 2 litres of water everyday can not only help with rosacea but it can help with many other health concerns.
Does alcohol make Rosacea worse?
It can if you have a yeast intolerance, that’s why food intolerance testing is important to know what causes you facial flushing.
What happens if Rosacea is left untreated?
People with early signs of rosacea who only have redness to start with if left untreated this can develop to itching, burning and uneven skin texture. If advanced rosacea is left untreated blood vessels can expand causing parts of the face to become disfigured. Swelling of the nose is very common.
