TAKE THE RED OUT

Red might be the color of the season in fashion, but it’s anything but stylish when splotched over your face. This condition, called Rosacea, worsens in winter. If you have it, you may or may not know, so take this short True/False to see.

T or F 1. My skin gets flushed when I drink red wine.
T or F 2. I have broken blood vessels around
my nose and on my chin.
T or F 3. I get bumps under my skin that won’t go away.
T or F 4. I have both pimples and wrinkles.
T or F 5. My skin gets red and irritated very easily.

If you answered True to at least four statements, this article is for you.

So what is Rosacea? It’s a type of adult acne that consists of three components: diffuse redness, broken blood vessels and cyst-like bumps. While it can affect all segments of the population, those with fair skin who tend to flush easily are believed to be at greatest risk. Rosacea’s cause is unknown, however there are a number of medical treatments I can prescribe that can control or reverse its signs and symptoms.

To counteract the ravages of time and the weather, I’ve created two packages:

My Red Relief Package consists of three treatments and offers a two-pronged approach to minimizing redness. First is a session with the Diolite® laser* for erasing the individual, enlarged blood vessels followed by two Ellipse® I²Pl® Skin Rejuvenation* treatments one month apart to minimize diffuse redness. The package price is $700 (separately these procedures would cost $1695).

The second, my Winter Rejuvenation Package, reduces uneven pigmentation and brown spots. You receive two Ellipse® I²Pl® Skin Rejuvenation* treatments, one month apart followed by a microdermabrasion session. This package costs $650 (separately these procedures would cost $1450).

Both packages must be purchased by March 31, 2013 and must be completed by December 31, 2013.

The time investment is minimal, although several sessions may be necessary for optimal results. For more information, call for a consultation at (201) 567-8884.

Diolite® Laser*Diolite® Laser – generates a focused beam of light, which delivers energy to a specific site; the laser energy is absorbed selectively by the color red and consequently this laser’s therapeutic effects are most apparent on red blood vessels. Accomplishes this with little to no down time.

Ellipse® I²Pl® Skin Rejuvenation*Ellipse® I²Pl® Skin Rejuvenation – delivers short bursts of very intense light to lighten age spots and reduces diffuse redness and uneven pigmentation and can help counteract sun damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands. Accomplishes this with minimal down time.
