If untreated, Rosacea can progress to persistent redness and tiny blood vessels in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead can become more prominent. Patients with pimples, especially older men, may then develop Rhinophyma, which is severe enlargement of the nose.

Rosacea is a common, yet uncomfortable skin condition that affects thousands of people in the UK. The most common symptoms are redness, flushing and burning of the skin across the cheeks, nose and chin. You may also notice blood vessels becoming more visible in those areas. Although the condition does not affect the physical health, it can often make sufferers extremely self-conscious.

If untreated, Rosacea can progress to persistent redness and tiny blood vessels in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead can become more prominent. Patients with pimples, especially older men, may then develop Rhinophyma, which is severe enlargement of the nose.

Rosacea Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

Here at The Private Clinic, we have a fast, effective and safe treatment for Rosacea – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL is a non-invasive treatment that reduces redness on the face and neck area. It emits light which is absorbed by the affected skin area, destroying the visible blood vessels, which are then reabsorbed into the body following the treatment. IPL is suitable for most skin types and colours, producing effective results for both men and women. If you are on any medication for Rosacea, please mention this to the medical professional during your consultation.

IPL Vascular Laser for rosacea is available in London Harley Street.


After Your Rosacea Treatment

The colour and overall texture of the skin is improved and redness is significantly reduced. Blood vessels will disappear following the IPL treatment.

There is no downtime, you can get back to your normal activities straight away after IPL treatment.

What do the treatments involve?

IPL is a system of pulsed light and lasers that penetrates the skin to improve tone and texture. No gels or topical anaesthetics are required and the procedure can be carried out on the face, chest, arms and hands. Here at The Private Clinic, we offer the very latest IPL technology on the market, known as Limelight. This type of laser skin treatment is both quicker and more effective than older IPL technologies.

How long do the treatments take?

With Limelight (IPL) we can now treat a whole face in just 30 minutes, whereas treatment takes 45 minutes with older technologies.

How many treatments will I need?

In order to achieve the best results from IPL we recommend a course of six treatments.

How soon will I see the results?

You should see an improvement after the first session of IPL treatment with the end results clearly visible after your last treatment.

How much does Rosacea treatment cost?

The cost of Rosacea treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment that is recommended for you following a consultation.

  • IPL Photorejuvenation prices start from £200 for a full face treatment. However prices vary depending on the number of treatments required.

Consultations are available with our expert skin and laser practitioners which costs £25. This cost is redeemable against any skin treatment you decide to book following your consultation.

You can also arrange a consultation with our Consultant Dermatologist for a bespoke treatment plan. The cost of the consultation with a Dermatologist is £200. Dermatologist consultations are only available at our London Harley Street Clinic.
