Please note: In my book, Rosacea 101, I wrote a chapter on Light Devices including IPL, Laser and LED which you can read this chapter in my book beginning on page 67.

IPL is one of the Photo Dynamic Therapies (PDT) for rosacea.

Intensity Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy is the hottest treatment for rosacans. Reports have indicated successful cosmetic improvement for rosacea. However the side effects include skin peeling, potential loss of facial hair and pain. Many have reported having to return after some time (months or years) for more treatment. There are numerous other medical light devices (including laser, LED lamps, etc.) with various brand name which are used to treat rosacea and are too numerous to mention, but some brands are listed in the links at the bottom. I suggest you do a Google search as well.

Intensity Pulsed Light Therapy, Laser & Other Light Devices

While some rosaceans have reported good results with their rosacea there have also been some bad reports of problems mainly due to improper treatment. This indicates that rosaceans not only need to educate themselves beforehand on these devices but also obtain the best treatment from physicians who have had an excellent track record. There are reports that it doesn't work for every rosacean, so, buyer beware.

There is evidence that IPL eliminates demodex mites. [source]

Background Rosacea is a common skin condition but the treatments currently available are not satisfactory. Objectives To assess the efficacy of intense pulsed light (IPL) for treatment of stage I rosacea (flushing, erythema and telangiectasia). Methods Thirty-four patients were treated, 25 women and nine men, mean age 47 years. The treatment employed was IPL 515-1200 nm, with a 560 nm cut-off filter. The fluence range was 24-32 J cm(-2). Four treatments were administered on the face at 3-week intervals. Erythema values were measured at baseline and at the end of the treatment period on the cheeks and chin. Digital photographs were assessed by a consultant dermatologist on a 10-point visual analogue scale (VAS). Patients' assessments were also made using a 10-point VAS. Outcome measures were repeated 6 months after treatment. Results After four treatments the mean reduction of the erythema values was 39% on the cheeks (P < 0.001) and 22% on the chin (P < 0.001). This was confirmed by photographic assessment where erythema improved by 46% and telangiectasia by 55% (P < 0.001). The severity of rosacea was reduced on average by 3.5 points on the 10-point VAS. Patients' and physicians' assessments of the overall improvement of rosacea were similar: more than 50% improvement was noticed in 73% and 83% of patients, respectively (P < 0.001). The results were sustained at 6 months. Side-effects were minimal and self-limiting. Conclusions IPL significantly reduces erythema and telangiectasia of rosacea and this is sustained for at least 6 months.
