Redness Relief Therapy
The blushing disease, rosacea is a common skin concern that often leaves your skin red and flushed. The small capillaries beneath the skin exacerbate the redness, which can spread beyond the nose and cheeks into the forehead and chin. Left untreated, it can increase with time and age. While many use cosmetics, primers and moisturizers to hide the effects of rosacea, medicine and science have discovered a more lasting treatment.
KuLight™ Redness Relief, exclusively available at Kucumber Skin Lounge, tackles rosacea and its partner — broken capillaries and vessels. We combine our best therapeutic facial treatments with light and/or laser energy to bring the redness under control for lasting periods of time. You can expect:
- Decreased redness
- Brighter skin
- Fewer broken blood vessels
- More even skin tone
- Pigmentation correction
- Refined texture
Your skin specialist with start with a thorough skin analysis, closely examining the area to be treated. We will apply treatment lotions and specific laser or light energy will be passed over your skin. The energy will penetrate your dermal layer of your skin, causing the oxyhemoglobin in the blood to absorb the light, creating heat that helps destroy capillaries that contribute to the appearance of rosacea. Over a period of three to four weeks, as the skin naturally heals itself, the vessels are resorbed, and facial redness diminishes.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Improvement in skin tone will be observed immediately after treatment, with appreciable collagen growth and restructuring becoming visible in about six to eight weeks. You may experience redness from the treatment but it should subside within the hours. It may take three to four weeks for the broken vessels to fade. Common side effects may include mild discomfort and superficial redness, which typically resolve within a few hours of the treatment.
