Some patients qualify for a Medicare rebate on the procedure if the blood vessels are particularly obvious. Small blood vessels and spider nevi often require just one treatment. Large numbers of vessels around the nose and cheeks require a few treatments for the best results.

Rosacea can be a frustrating condition for patients. In addition to inflammatory spots and pustules, rosacea can lead to permanent redness and visible blood vessels over the cheeks and nose. If you have already had medical treatment for the rosacea and wish to reduce permanent redness then laser treatments melbourne can be very effective.

The best results are achieved with a series of treatments, combined with good skin care and sun avoidance. For certain types of rosacea, medical treatment may be better than laser. A specialist Dermatologist can help you get the improvements you want.
