IPL seems to be preferred but sometimes the two are used
in combination. Both can
be expensive and are probably not covered by insurance. I
'm considering them anyway.
Lastly, the cliche "less is more" applies to rosacea very well. Stay away from OTC creams, moisturizers, soaps, etc. I only use Cetaphil moisturizing creme once daily and Cetaphil gentle cleanser. That, and the meds, and a non-irritating, non-chemical sunscreen with zinc and titanium oxide.
