Rosacea is a chronic skin condition affecting millions worldwide, presenting a spectrum of challenges to dermatologists and their patients suffering from the disease. Characterized by facial redness, swelling, and visible blood vessels, rosacea can significantly impact patients’ quality of life. The discussion delves into the multifaceted nature of rosacea, spotlighting the different forms—Erythematotelangiectatic, Papulopustular, and Phymatous rosacea—and the hurdles faced in treating and diagnosing this complex condition, particularly in patients with skin of color. Furthermore, the advantages of using the Aerolase Neo Elite® laser for treatment are explored, targeting the inflammation and hypervasculature at the heart of rosacea’s pathology.

Understanding Rosacea: A Multidimensional Perspective

Rosacea’s manifestations are diverse, necessitating a tailored approach to diagnosis and management. A closer look at its primary forms reveals:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea: Marked by persistent redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Patients may also experience flushing, visible blood vessels, and skin sensitivity.

  • Papulopustular Rosacea: Associated with “whitehead” pustules, which are pus-filled blemishes, and red, swollen bumps. Often identified as acne, located on the cheeks, chin, and forehead.

  • Phymatous Rosacea: Characterized by thickening skin, especially around the nose (rhinophyma), leading to a bulbous appearance, which is more common in men.

Identifying these forms accurately is crucial for effective treatment, highlighting the need for comprehensive understanding among healthcare providers.

The Challenge of Treating Rosacea

Treatment of rosacea presents a conundrum due to its chronic nature and variability in symptoms. Traditional methods range from topical agents to oral medications, which can offer relief but often have with limitations and side effects. Treatment efficacy can be inconsistent, with many patients commonly experiencing relapses. In addition to the challenges of treating rosacea, diagnosing the inflammatory disease in patients with skin of color is often overlooked or inaccurately identified. The condition’s hallmark signs are less visible on darker skin tones, underscoring the necessity for heightened awareness and adapted examination techniques among dermatologists treating diverse patient populations.

Aerolase Neo Elite: A Revolutionary Approach to Rosacea Treatment

The Aerolase Neo Elite laser offers a groundbreaking solution for rosacea treatment. This advanced laser technology is distinguished by its unique ability to target the inflammatory components and hypervasculature of rosacea without the drawbacks of traditional treatments.

Aerolase Neo Elite utilizes 650-microsecond technology, delivering energy quickly and effectively to target rosacea’s vascular and inflammatory components. This precision reduces the risk of thermal damage to surrounding tissues, making it safer for all skin types, including skin of color patients. The laser’s efficacy in reducing redness, swelling, and the appearance of blood vessels addresses the core symptoms of rosacea, offering patients significant and lasting relief.

In a comparative study conducted by Manturova Natalia Evgenievna, MD, PHD, tested the effectiveness of neodymium laser therapy, specifically utilizing the Aerolase Neo Elite® laser with a 1064nm wavelength and a short pulse length of 650 microseconds, was evaluated alongside pulsed dye laser therapy for the treatment of papulopustular rosacea. This study, encompassing 124 patients diagnosed with papulopustular rosacea, demonstrated promising outcomes with the Neo Elite laser. The analysis revealed a significant improvement in the Investigator’s Global Assessment (IGA) and the Patient’s Global Assessment (PGA) in Group 1, which received neodymium laser therapy, compared to Group 2, which received pulsed dye laser therapy. The IGA/PGA improvement was 82.9%/76.9% in Group 1 versus 58.8%/51.3% in Group 2. Moreover, the study highlighted a notable decrease in the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) following neodymium laser therapy, indicating enhanced patient satisfaction and quality of life. Additionally, a higher percentage of patients in Group 1 reported excellent tolerability and comfort with the neodymium laser therapy compared to Group 2. These findings underscore the efficacy and patient satisfaction of Aerolase Neo Elite laser therapy in the management of papulopustular rosacea, suggesting its potential as a preferred treatment option for this condition. Further research is recommended to explore its applicability across other rosacea subtypes and potential combination therapies.

“The [Neo Elite] allows for clearance of rosacea  in a quick but gentle procedure. Spider veins and other vessels can be cleared in 1 to 3 treatments. My patients are ecstatic with the results.”
