Dr. Jeffrey Juchau
Family Medicine 33 years experience
Rosacea: Not familiar with ipl. Rosacea responds well to oral and topical treatments. See your family doc or a dermatologist.
Dr. Mark Johnson
Aesthetic Medicine 26 years experience
Rosacea: Use a doctor dispensed product that diminishes the inflammation of the skin. Avoid alcohol and any other foods that increase your redness.
Dr. James Shire
Facial Plastic Surgery 40 years experience
Watch activities: There is no cure for your problem. Ipl treatments are one of the best forms of improvement, but not a cure. Try avoiding hot, humid environments, alcohol (topical and drinking both), increased cardio workouts. All of these will make it worse.
