Rosacea Laser Treatment: What to Know

Fiery red patches, spider webs of broken blood vessels, and bumpy blemishes characterize rosacea. If you are battling with the discomfort and frustration of rosacea and are frustrated with the creams and medications that are typically prescribed, there is a better answer.

Laser treatment is your knight in shining armor, a technological treatment that can get to the root of the problem.

At LightRx, our laser treatments can reduce redness and visible blood vessels, minimize papules and pustules, and improve skin texture and tone.

Rosacea Laser Treatment

Understanding the different resurfacing treatments at LightRx: the Venus Viva, Venus Glow, Sofwave, and Aerolase Neo Elite. Our most advanced laser treatment is the Aerolase Neo Elite.

Aerolase Neo Elite:

Our Aerolase Neo Elite, our Laser Genesis treatment, activates collagen production to repair damage. It’s a non-ablative vascular laser, so it doesn’t remove the top layer of the skin during treatment.

Our Aerolase Neo Elite is an advanced technology that resurfaces the skin and removes the skin cells that cause inflammation and redness. This treatment works by helping you manage the rosacea symptoms and the pain associated with the redness and blemishes.

After consultation with a qualified technician, it helps to understand the other treatments used at LightRx as well.

Venus Viva:

This system uses radiofrequency energy, a non-invasive rosacea treatment. It works by reducing inflammation and the other symptoms of the problem, like redness, pustules, and general discomfort.


This technology is also an effective treatment that uses ultrasound technology to administer heat deep into the layers of the skin, stimulating collagen growth and reducing inflammation.

Sofwave will improve the redness, discoloration and the other painful symptoms of rosacea.

Venus Glow:

Rejuvenate your face with this treatment that opens pores to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities using a three-pronged approach for cleaner, clearer skin.

Rosacea Laser Treatment – How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Experience has shown that for the best results, you should expect two to six treatment sessions to meet your goals.

Remember that everyone is different, so the number of sessions you will need is based on your particular level and severity of rosacea and your personal goals. You can expect results in a few weeks; full results will manifest over three months following your final treatment.

Understanding the Treatment

When you seek laser treatment for rosacea, you will begin with a consultation to decide on the best treatment plan for your goals.

Your skin will be prepared for the treatment, and the laser will be administered.

Finally, you can relax during the cooling process and receive post-treatment care and instructions.

  1. The length of each treatment session is based on the laser technology being used. With the Aerolase Neo Elite, each treatment lasts between 30 and 90 minutes.
  2. During this treatment, most people experience virtually no or only mild discomfort. It feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin. Your technician can outline strategies to help with minor pain and discomfort.
  3. All laser treatment is non-invasive, so there is no downtime. You can resume normal activities immediately following treatment. You can discuss any post-treatment strategies with your LightRx professional during your consultation.
  4. To know what to expect, most people see a significant improvement after only a few sessions. How long the improvements last depends on the individual.

Laser treatment is a great way to manage rosacea. It isn’t a cure for it, but it can significantly improve your condition and is well worth the time and money.
