Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition and commonly appears on the face. The symptoms of rosacea include blushing, redness, and general unevenness. These may come and go but over time become increasingly visible, permanent, and uncomfortable. The symptoms are often noticeable around the chin, cheeks, nose, and forehead. In rare cases, a patient may display signs of pus-filled pimples and/or enlarged blood vessels.

This clinic provides access to state-of-the-art technology to combat rosacea and add liveliness to one’s appearance.

Causes of Rosacea

This inflammatory skin condition affects the face but its causes remain important while distinguishing between cases. A specialist will assess the skin’s surface, texture, and its symptoms before establishing a thorough treatment plan based on those details. Patients are requested to book an immediate consultation for this assessment to take place.

With 1 in 20 people affected by mild or severe rosacea, it remains a well-studied subject and one with a wide range of symptoms.

Causes include:

  • Genetic Predisposition
  • Irregularities in Blood Vessels
  • Microscopic Mites
  • Fair Skin Color (Higher Chance of Rosacea)

The causes may vary but most cases will include genetic predisposition and/or irregularities in the facial blood vessels.

While determining the cause of a patient’s rosacea, the specialist will study potential triggers. These triggers may aggravate the symptoms and be a source of concern. This factor is taken into account before the treatment is completed.

Triggers include:

  • Environmental Conditions (Humidity, Windiness)
  • Diet (Hot Food, Spicy Food, Caffeine)
  • Exposure to Sun
  • Stress
  • Use of Steroids
  • Saunas
  • Blood Thinners and/or High Blood Pressure Medications
  • Alcohol Consumptions

A combination of these triggers can aggravate the patient’s symptoms.

Treatment

To reduce the presence of rosacea symptoms, a specialist will pinpoint specificities including skin type, age, triggers, and target areas. After doing this, the specialist will map out the treatment and provide a briefing to the patient. All of this is done during the consultation and/or prior to the treatment.

The clinic utilizes sophisticated technology to target rosacea in the skin and bolster the patient’s skin condition. It uses a targeted laser treatment (Elite Plus) to maximize results and eliminate underlying symptoms. This procedure will help add youthfulness to the patient’s appearance and reduce or eliminate underlying rosacea symptoms.

On the day of the treatment, this clinic will evaluate the skin condition, symptoms, and triggers before developing a comprehensive treatment plan. This will include the use of a topical anesthetic, placement of the wavelength, and post-procedure recovery planning.

Patients are requested to mention additional variables including their medical history, skin-related history, and all relevant information. This helps provide a complete procedure that’s safe, efficient, and in line with modern standards.

Recovery

The patient’s focus will remain on the post-procedure recovery and results. In general, the recovery phase is light and does not require prolonged time away from your daily routine. If necessary, the specialist will offer a range of recovery options to ease the mild discomfort.

With the results, patients can expect an immediate change to the texture, tone, and appearance of their skin. The rosacea symptoms will diminish by at least 50-75% with many cases displaying stronger results. The results will vary based on the client’s skin condition, tone, age, and their post-procedure recovery planning.

Patients are requested to stay out of the sunlight, avoid strenuous activity, and improve their diet to maintain stronger results for a longer period. This aids the recovery stage and offers vigorous results in the long-term.

For more information on reducing or removing rosacea symptoms, patients can seek a consultation at this clinic with a world-renowned specialist. This is an opportunity to have a trained eye analyze the skin and conclude which treatment is apt.
