Laser treatment is a great option for patients that have visible blood vessels. Laser treatments are effective at shrinking these veins without harming the surrounding skin.

The best laser for rosacea is the pulsed dye laser. Pulsed dye laser treatment emits a beam of light aimed at the visible red blood vessels in the skin to shrink them and make them less visible, furthermore, there is emerging evidence that pulsed dye laser is also effective in reducing the severity of flushing.
