Professional skincare advice for rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes flushing or long-term redness on your face. It also may cause enlarged blood vessels and small, pus-filled bumps. Some symptoms may flare for weeks to months and then go away for a while.

Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, dermatitis or other skin problems.

There's no cure for rosacea and the cause is not clear. There are known triggers that are common such as temperature, alcohol and spicy foods and stress is also a very common factor for flare ups. It can also be genetic.

It can be well managed with skin care and treatments and looking after yourself holistically ( diet, sleep, stress management) If left untreated it often progresses through the stages and may worsen.

Roscaea can flare up at any given time and I will guide you through what changes tome when this does happen.

Symptoms of Rosacea

  • Facial redness and flushing. Rosacea can make your face flush more easily. Over time, you may notice that your face stays red. Depending on skin color, redness may be subtle or look more pink or purple.
  • Visible veins. Small blood vessels of the nose and cheeks break and become larger. These are also called spider veins. They may be subtle and hard to see, depending on skin color.
  • Swollen bumps. Many people with rosacea develop pimples on the face that look like acne. These bumps sometimes contain pus. They also may appear on the chest and back.
  • Burning sensation. The skin of the affected area may feel hot and tender.
  • Eye problems. Many people with rosacea also have dry, irritated, swollen eyes and eyelids. This is known as ocular rosacea. Eye symptoms may show up before, after or at the same time as skin symptoms.
  • Enlarged nose. Over time, rosacea can thicken the skin on the nose, causing the nose to look bigger. This condition also is called rhinophyma. It occurs more often in men than in women.

Recommended Treatments for Rosacea

Byonik Laser and certain skin infusions/peels are my go-to for Rosacea treatment. IPL is also good depending on the stage of Roseca and skin health. Facelite LED home Mask is advised for home treatment on a continual cycle.
