Resurfacing does not treat rosacea but other light based therapies can work. The most common laser used for rosacea treatment is the 595nm laser that will treat the vessels. This laser has a tendency to cause a bruised look called purpura. The purpura will go away in 1 to 2 weeks. Newer versions of this laser tend to cause significantly less purpura. Other options are IPL systems that can treat red in blood vessels. I prefer to use the BBL system as it allows me to customize the treatments to each patient more than other IPL systems. The BBL will not cause the purpura but tends to take a few more treatments
than the 595nm laser.

I am a 22-year-old woman with a hole in her face. I removed a mole at home seven years ago and a few days later removed the flattened area that was left over from the initial mole removal. There has been a hole there ever since. Would laser resurfacing help? Or, are there any other treatments that you could suggest? I am so worried. Please help.
