We offer a range of treatments, often prescribed in conjunction with each other to successfully combat rosacea.
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.
Rosacea can be successfully treated with the use of Intense Pulsed Lights and is a fast and easy way to help reduce the effects.
Rosacea is a skin condition caused by the enlargement of certain facial blood vessels, which results in a flushed appearance of the cheeks and nose.
IPL treats rosacea by focusing on the visible blood vessels of the skin. The heat from the light targets the widened blood vessels and causes them to shrink until their visibility is significantly reduced.
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.
The amount of procedures needed to get the desired results will vary depending on the patient and the severity of the condition.
