Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne. It typically occurs in people with fair skin between the ages of 30 and 50 and is more common in women than men.

Rosacea is caused by swelling of the blood vessels that are situated right beneath the skin. This leads to the associated symptoms of redness of the face, blushing or flushing easily, an increased number of spider-like blood vessels (telangiectasia) of the face, red nose (also called a ‘bulbous’ nose), skin sores that may ooze or crust in more extreme cases, a burning or stinging feeling in the face and irritated, bloodshot, watery eyes.

Although rosacea is a harmless condition, it may lower self-esteem and the confidence of those affecting, therefore impacting on social and sometimes professional lives.

When this procedure is performed, special care is taken to avoid causing damage to the surrounding skin tissue. This procedure may cause slight discomfort, however patients are usually able to undergo the entire procedure without an anaesthetic.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
