Are there any alternative treatments for rosacea besides medication?

Dr. Anthony Corrado
Specializes in Facial Plastic Surgery
IPL for Rosacea: Intense pulsed light (ipl), or "photofacial", is an appropriate treatment for the redness of rosacea. A few treatments spaced approx. A month apart will be needed. A topical antibiotic like Metronidazole may be used in between sessions. Also, avoidance of triggers such as sun, heat, cold, spicy foods, and alcohol may help reduce redness. http://www.dranthonycorrado.com/procedures/non-invasive.
