If you suffer from rosacea and are looking for a safe and effective treatment, with long-lasting results, Ultherapy may be right for you.
In fact, a recent study evaluating the effects of microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) on erythematotelangiectatic rosacea revealed that Ultherapy can produce significant symptom relief following just one treatment.
Continue reading to learn all about Ultherapy for rosacea and how it can help reduce redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels and achieve a clear and even complexion.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved noninvasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (non-ionizing ultrasonic waves) to precisely heat tissue.
In doing so, it stimulates collagen and elastin, improves blood flow, and lifts and tightens skin on the face, neck, and décolleté.
According to a new study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, Ultherapy is also an effective treatment for erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.
Signs and Symptoms of Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea
Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is typically characterized by central facial flushing, transient erythema, burning, stinging, and visible blood vessels.
Researchers have found that Ultherapy for rosacea can improve patient symptoms following one treatment. The procedure is performed in an office setting and can take 30-60 minutes.
It is entirely noninvasive and avoids incisions, general anesthesia, and downtime. In fact, many patients undergo Ultherapy over their lunch break and return to work immediately after without any visible signs of treatment.
Ultherapy for Rosacea
The study on Ultherapy for rosacea was designed to assess the efficacy of microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) on erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.
88 healthy adults with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea were divided into one-of-four treatment groups and treated with one-or-two low-density treatments and one-or-two high-density treatments.
After measuring rosacea symptoms at 90, 180, and 365 days post-treatment, researchers concluded that patients treated with 1 high-density MFU-V treatment demonstrated the greatest improvement.
What’s more, treatment benefits were maintained for 1 year.
