VPL couperose and rosacea

VPL Couperose

Couperosis is a congenital enlargement of the smallest blood vessels in the face or décolleté. It is sometimes a precursor of rosacea, a skin disease similar to acne, but with different causes. In addition to drug treatment options, obliteration or sclerotherapy of the fine red capillary vessels just below the skin surface using VPL technology, can be very successful.


Couperose skin fades increasingly during the treatment period. The final result is visible after a few months, depending on the individual metabolism.


VPL whole face - 30 min - CHF 190
VPL face small zone - 15 min - CHF 120


Frequently asked questions about VPL couperose and rosacea treatments

What happens during treatment?

After taking your medical history, a gel is applied to the skin region to be treated. During the treatment, a VPL handpiece sends controlled light impulses onto the couperose skin. The blood pigment haemoglobin in the tiny veins absorbs the light and warms the surrounding vascular wall, so that the blood coagulates in it and the tiny veins "stick together". The vascular remains are metabolized and excreted in a natural way.

How long do the treatments take?

Depending on the treatment area, the actual treatment time per session is 10 to 20 minutes.

How many treatments are necessary for visible results?

Depending on the severity and extent of the couperose skin and the treatment area, between 2 and 5 treatments at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks are necessary.

Are there any side effects with VPL therapy?

After the treatment, the skin may be slightly reddened or swollen. This redness or swelling will decrease within a few hours. You should avoid sunbathing, saunas, or heavy sweating.
