18 Jul 2017 What is Rosacea and How Can You Treat It?

Having Rosacea can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Rosacea is a condition that causes flushed, red skin, and broken blood vessels. There can also be small red bumps that look like tiny pimples. The pores on your face can also become enlarged.

Millions of people, including both men and women, have it and it usually shows up after 30 years of age. Sometimes it goes away for a period and will re-emerge later. It can be a chronic issue that starts at the center of the face near the nose and cheeks and moves to the chin and forehead over time. It can even spread to the ears, back, eyes, and chest.

Types of Rosacea – Rosacea exists in several forms

• Papulopustular Rosacea
• Blushing Rosacea
• Telangiectatic (blood vessel) Rosacea
• Dietary/alcoholic Rosacea
• Rhinophymatous Rosacea (causes bulbous nose)
• Mite-infestation related Rosacea

Causes of Rosacea

The symptoms of Rosacea are triggered by different things for each person. Some triggers include spicy foods, hot beverages, caffeine, wine, the wind, and sun exposure. It is a good idea to keep track of when your symptoms occur and what triggers your flare ups. You should bring this information to your next medispa session or Dr. Neaman to review with you.

Treatments for Rosacea

The condition of Rosacea can be a long-term and chronic issue. However, there are some treatments that help to control outbreaks and episodes. One treatment that is especially effective at Neaman MediSpa is the Lutronic Clarity laser. This laser targets the red pigmentation and helps remove it with the body’s own immunity. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, and you can return to work or other activities once it is completed. Complete results may require multiple treatments, but you will be able to see noticeable changes after just one session. Other treatments include recommendations of skin care regimens and medications.
