If you have rosacea, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance, and the symptoms can be uncomfortable or even painful. Luckily, Dr. Alizadeh has discovered a unique way of treating the underlying inflammatory nature of rosacea to improve your skin without any need for medications or long-term therapies. Dr. Alizadeh and his team have developed several laser treatment modalities to help restore your skin’s health and radiance.


Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disorder that primarily affects the face. The symptoms of rosacea can vary from person to person, but the most common symptoms include the following:

  • Facial redness
  • Flushing
  • Small red bumps or pustules
  • Visible blood vessels
  • Eye irritation
  • Burning or stinging sensation
  • Dry, rough, or scaly skin

While the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, several factors may contribute to its development, including:

  • Genetics
  • Abnormalities in the immune system
  • Inflammatory changes within the blood vessels of the skin
  • Environmental triggers (e.g., sun exposure, hot or cold weather, wind)
  • Demodex mites (tiny parasites that live on the skin)

There are four types of rosacea, each with its own set of symptoms:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea causes facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels.
  • Papulopustular rosacea causes small red bumps or pustules on the face.
  • Phymatous rosacea causes thickening of the skin and enlargement of the nose (rhinophyma).
  • Ocular rosacea affects the eyes, causing redness, dryness, and irritation.


At Alizadeh Cosmoplastic Surgery, we understand rosacea's impact on your self-confidence and quality of life. That is why we offer various laser skin rejuvenation treatment options to help you achieve clear and healthy-looking skin.


BBL® HERO™️ is a cutting-edge technology that uses broadband light to target the root of rosacea. This treatment can reduce redness and inflammation while improving skin texture and tone. It is a safe and comfortable treatment that requires no downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately. 


SCITON® HALO™ is a non-invasive laser treatment that can effectively reduce redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. It is a hybrid fractional laser that uses both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to target the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment can also improve skin texture and tone, leaving you with smoother and more youthful-looking skin.


SCITON® MOXI™ is another non-invasive laser treatment that can help improve rosacea symptoms. This gentle laser treatment stimulates collagen production and reduces redness and inflammation. It is a quick and easy treatment requiring no downtime, making it an excellent option for busy schedules.


TRL™ and BBL™ are additional treatment options that can help improve rosacea symptoms. Both improve skin texture and tone while reducing redness and inflammation; the difference is that TRL™ is a laser resurfacing treatment, while BBL™ is a light therapy treatment. TRL is extremely effective for the treatment of advanced rosacea, especially in a condition in the nose called rhinophyma.

During the initial consultation for rosacea treatment, Dr. Alizadeh and his team will assess your skin using the VISIA® Complexion Analysis System. This innovative imaging tool evaluates your skin's overall condition and age and identifies surface and subsurface skin conditions. The VISIA® simulation can also display the expected outcomes of particular laser skin resurfacing treatments. The recorded data is an excellent tool for comparison and evaluation following treatment. Based on the results of the VISIA® Complexion Analysis, Dr. Alizadeh may suggest one or more of the laser skin rejuvenation treatments listed above.
