Ask The Aesthetician – Rosacea

by valiant

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes reddened skin, usually on the nose, chin and cheeks. It affects the oil glands and also may cause eye problems including chronic dryness. The symptoms typically come and go, with many people reporting certain triggers, such as sun exposure, hormones, stress, and certain foods.

 

High quality or medicated skin creams, low-dose oral antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory therapies can help, but one of the most effective treatments for long term control is IPL (Intense pulsed light) therapy. This safe and effective treatment directly targets the small blood vessels at the source of the inflammation.
