Couperose treatment

The laser treatment for couperose at Skin Improvement Beauty in Amsterdam makes the skin more even

Want to reduce red vessels and general skin redness? Then choose a laser treatment at Skin Improvement Beauty in Amsterdam. We work with the Harmony XL Pro Essential, with this innovative laser we can effectively treat the deeper layers of skin and the device allows the practitioner to treat with millimeter precision.

Using a special wavelength, one specific target in the skin is reached such as the vessels. In the process, the surrounding tissue is not damaged. The most effective way to treat couperose is to use a vascular laser. The laser light absorbs into hemoglobin in the vessels. The energy heats this to the point where the vessels stick together. The natural healing process ensures that the vessels are removed in the body and the redness disappears.

The Laser Treatment for couperose addresses the following indications:

  • Red vessels
  • Redness of the skin
  • The couperose treatment explained

    The laser treatment for couperose is an innovative facial treatment that is performed in 3 steps at Skin Improvement Beauty Amsterdam.

    • Cleansing the skin and applying a gel

    Laser treatment of couperose can be perceived as slightly sensitive. During the treatment, you may feel “little pinpricks” on the skin. Small scabs may appear after treatment. This is not the case with everyone.

    What you can do yourself to prevent rosacea

    Basically, couperose cannot be prevented but there are things you can do to reduce the reappearance of couperose.

Frequently asked questions about the couperose laser treatment at Skin Improvement Beauty in Amsterdam

  • When will I see the results of the rosacea laser treatment?

    After about 1-2 weeks after treatment, you will see the results. Once the scabs have fallen off the skin you will notice that the skin is more even and less red. Several treatments may be required depending on the indication.

  • Is the rosacea laser treatment a painful treatment?

    The treatment is not very painful; it feels like small pinpricks on the skin. Immediately after treatment, the skin can be cooled with a cool pack.

  • Can the laser treatment for couperose also be undergone in the summer period?

    It is basically allowed, provided the skin is not exposed to the sun in the weeks following the treatment. We recommend treatment before or after the summer months.

  • Does the laser treatment for couperose has a downtime?

    After the treatment of rosacea, the skin may be a little red from the heat; you may cool this at home with a cool pack. The redness often subsides after a few hours. UV protection should always be carefully considered during the treatment process for couperose. The skin should not be exposed to the sun or tanning bed without protection for one month after the treatment. Otherwise, there is a risk of pigmentation in the treated area. We recommend taking it easy on sports for up to 4 days after treatment, trying to limit bending and not going to the sauna. Strong temperature changes can easily cause the vessels to reopen.

    To properly reduce the skin condition couperose, an average course of 6 laser treatments are required. It is also possible that the vessels may go away after only 2 or 3 laser treatments.
