Yes there is a LASER treatment for rosacea.
Dermatological vascular laser (single wavelength) or intense pulsed light (broad spectrum) machines offer one of the best treatments for rosacea, in particular the erythema (redness) of the skin.
They use light to penetrate the epidermis to target the capillaries in the dermis layer of the skin.
The light is absorbed by oxy-hemoglobin, which heat up, causing the capillary walls to heat up to 70 °C (158 °F), damaging them, causing them to be absorbed by the body's natural defense mechanism.
With a sufficient number of treatments, this method may even eliminate the redness altogether,
though additional periodic treatments will likely be necessary to remove newly formed capillaries.
CO2 lasers can be used to remove excess tissue caused by phymatous rosacea.
CO2 lasers emit a wavelength that is absorbed directly by the skin. The laser beam can be focused into a thin beam and used as a scalpel or defocused and used to vaporize tissue.
Low level light therapies have also been used to treat rosacea.
Photorejuvenation can also be used to improve the appearance of rosacea and reduce the redness associated with it.
