Abstract


Goal of the study. To assess the efficacy and safety of using broadband pulse light emission with smooth pulse and photon recirculation technologies in the treatment of patients suffering from erythematous and papulous subtypes of rosacea. Materials and methods. Sixty rosacea patients (21 male and 39 female) at the age of 25-65 including 38 patients with erythematous and 22 patients with papulous subtypes of rosacea underwent treatment using broadband pulse light emission (5-8 treatment sessions). Results. After one month of treatment with broadband pulse light emission using smooth pulse and photon recirculation technologies: 68.4% of patients with the erythematous subtype had clinical recovery, and 31.6% - improvement; 27.2% of patients with the papulous subtype - clinical recovery, 54.5% - improvement, and 18.3% had no effect. After 5 months of treatment most of the patients still had a positive effect of the therapy, yet 21.1% of patients with the erythematous subtype and 11% of patients with the papulous subtype had single telangiectasias, increased erythema and single papules. After 10 months of treatment 44.7% of patients with the erythematous subtype of rosacea had an increase in the number of enlarged vessels, and 18.3% of patients with the papulous subtype had signs of a recurrence of the disease. Conclusion. The use of broadband pulse light emission with smooth pulse and photon recirculation technologies has a multiple, painless and significant effect on large lesions in the treatment of patients suffering from erythematous and papulous subtypes of rosacea.
