Are you suffering from awful, embarrassing rosacea facial redness causing you to feel less confident at work or in social situations?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness typically on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Sometimes it can appear on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. It can cause small, red, pus-filled bumps, which could lead to scarring if left untreated. Although rosacea often affects people with fair skin who flush or blush easily, it can affect anyone. Signs and symptoms may flare up for a period of weeks to months and then diminish for a while.
While there's no cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. Without treatment, the condition can get worse. There is no one best treatment for rosacea as treatment varies from patient to patient. Treatment regimens chosen depend on severity of condition. In long standing cases where broken blood vessels are noticeable, vascular lasers such as the Vbeam laser can be extremely effective. We’ve also seen impressive results with Nd Yag and IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. These treatments help to remove the visible blood vessels from the face—clearing up redness and dramatically improving the overall look of skin. Treatment of the vessels minimizes the chronic inflammation associated with the condition.
