Rosacea

Rosacea is common chronic inflammation of the skin with resulting facial redness (erythema), and symptoms of vasculation of spidery blood vessels (telangiectasia), facial swelling (hyperplasia), and Rosacea papules (red solid elevated inflammatory skin lesion without pus.)

While the exact cause of Rosacea is unknown, several triggers have been identified that may make the symptoms worse in some people. These include exposure to sunlight, stress, cold or hot weather, wind, hot drinks, alcohol, hot and spicy food.

There is no cure for Rosacea, but a range of treatments are available at our treatment center that can help to control the symptoms of this skin condition.

The redness and flushing which is probably the most prominent and common feature of Rosacea can be minimised with Lasers and IPL. The treatment of Rosacea depends largely on the severity of the condition and often several treatments are recommended. A medical consultation is essential as your treatment may include prescription medication, either oral or topical and IPL either alone or in combination with Nd: YAG laser and LED light treatment. You will be advised to use skin care products with ant–inflammatory ingredients. At Skin and Laser clinic we have a wide range of medical cosmecutical products for your home care use.
