Chronic Facial
Redness & Flushing

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by persistent facial redness and flushing. It typically affects the central face, including the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. Rosacea often begins with occasional redness but can progress to more noticeable symptoms, such as visible blood vessels, pimples, and pustules. While its exact cause remains unknown, factors like genetics, environmental triggers, and vascular abnormalities are risk factors. Effective rosacea treatment focuses on reducing redness and preventing flare-ups.

Your Rosacea Treatment Options

During your rosacea consultation at uGlow Med Spa, we assess the severity of your condition and discuss your concerns. Our experienced professionals curate a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific symptoms and skin type. We’ll select from our range of advanced treatments, such as Quanta Light EVO, microneedling, and Morpheus8, to address your unique goals and help you achieve and maintain a radiant complexion.

Quanta Light EVO

Quanta Light EVO treats rosacea by utilizing advanced intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. This treatment targets the hemoglobin in blood vessels beneath the skin’s surface. The laser emits a precise wavelength of light, which is absorbed by the hemoglobin, causing the blood vessels to constrict and reduce redness. Over time, repeated sessions encourage the body’s natural healing processes to remodel the treated vessels, diminishing rosacea symptoms. This approach offers long-lasting relief for individuals struggling with rosacea.

Microneedling effectively treats rosacea through collagen induction. During the procedure, fine needles create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural wound-healing response. This triggers the production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins that help rejuvenate the skin. For rosacea patients, increased collagen production can strengthen the skin’s capillaries, reducing redness and improving overall skin texture. Over time, microneedling can lead to a noticeable reduction in rosacea symptoms and a more even complexion.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 RF microneedling is an innovative treatment for rosacea that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology. The microneedles create micro-injuries while the radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin. This dual-action approach stimulates collagen and elastin production, strengthening blood vessel walls and reducing redness associated with rosacea. Additionally, the heat from radiofrequency tightens the skin, improving overall texture and tone. Morpheus8 RF microneedling provides lasting results by addressing the vascular and textural aspects of rosacea.
