Claiming Compensation For Rosacea Laser And IPL Treatments
Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder, common in both women and men over the age of 30. It causes periodic spells of flushing and redness in the face, mainly affecting the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. This unpleasant and incurable condition routinely causes deep embarrassment, loss of confidence, stress, anxiety and depression. The cosmetic symptoms of rosacea can be improved by a range of treatments, depending on the severity of the condition, including both vascular laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) sessions. Multiple laser or IPL treatments will usually be required (between 3 and 6), spread out over a number of weeks to achieve the desired results and, if successful, the course of treatments will have a dramatically beneficial effect on a person’s appearance.
Possible Dangers Of Using Laser And IPL To Treat Rosacea
The safety and effectiveness of rosacea laser and IPL procedures depends mainly on the skill and judgment of the dermatologist, physician, therapist or technician involved in carrying out a course of treatments. Disfigurement to the face caused by rosacea may be made worse by a poorly performed laser or IPL therapy. Undesirable results include uneven areas of skin from indentations caused by fat displacement, and swelling, particularly under the eyes, that may take months to go down, causing deep distress and embarrassment. A person may also be left with uneven skin tone, such as when patches of skin are discoloured or darkened by hyperpigmentation, and unintended consequences of this kind may effectively disfigure a person for a lengthy period of time, and in a minority of cases permanently.
The Importance Of Patient Evaluation And Technical Precision
To avoid these types of scenarios, it is essential that a competent analysis is made of a prospective patient’s skin sensitivity prior to a laser or IPL treatment for rosacea. If a laser beam or intense pulsed light is too strong for a person’s skin, or if it is directed at the skin for fractionally too long, it may cause deep burns and scarring in highly sensitive facial areas. Competent pre-treatment assessment of a prospective patient and the technical skill of the therapist or technician carrying out the laser treatment are both equally important therefore, as small professional errors in either area can have disastrous consequences.
