Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea Treatment

Many individuals have skin concerns, some are easier to treat than others. Those suffering with rosacea are most likely aware that there is no ‘cure’ for the condition. This can make the condition hard to deal with and regular flare ups may be causing you stress. Whether you’re suffering from mild symptoms or they feel pretty serious, you’re well within your right to seek help to address your concerns. In this blog we’re helping you with some rosacea treatments.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that affects around 1 in 10 people in the UK. It mainly appears on the face and can cause redness on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. As well as redness, you may find that you experience bumps on the skin. Rosacea can also lead to higher levels of sensitivity on the face, you may experience discomfort when using skincare products.

If you have not yet been diagnosed with rosacea, there are other symptoms to look out for such as dry skin and swelling around the eyes. It is important to visit the GP if you begin noticing signs of the condition, they may be able to help you to manage your symptoms.

Are there any triggers for rosacea?

As you live with a condition, you’re likely to start noticing things that may lead to a trigger in symptoms. Triggers that have been identified include things such as alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods and even exercise.

You should discuss any noticeable triggers with your GP to ensure that they can give you the best help.

What are some rosacea treatments?

As we mentioned previously, it is important to remember that there is no cure for rosacea. Our treatments are advised to help to reduce the symptoms of the condition. We also appreciate that there is no treatment that works for everyone, therefore we start with a full consultation so we can provide a bespoke treatment plan.

Dermalux

Our Dermalux treatment involves the use of LED lights and can be used to address a range of skin concerns. This treatment works to speed up the process of cell repair and produce new collagen. The main benefit of Dermalux when treating rosacea is that it increases blood flow and assists with circulation.

Harmony XL Pro

The Harmony XL Pro laser treatment uses various modules to treat the symptoms of conditions such as rosacea. Due to the multiple options available, this treatment can be fully personalised to suit your personal needs.

HydraFacial

Our HydraFacial treatment works by removing dead skin cells to allow for a more hydrated complexion. To reduce the symptoms of rosacea, this treatment utilises serums with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to support a hydrated complexion and protect your skin.

Short Wave Diathermy

This treatment involves the use of heat to close the broken blood capillaries that can cause thread veins and blemishes. The Short Wave Diathermy is particularly good at reducing the redness associated with rosacea, leaving you with a more even tone.

PRP Therapy

The PRP Therapy treatment involves the use of blood cells to aid healing and assist with the regrowth of new cells. The treatment works by closing broken blood cells and increasing the production of collagen.

There are other treatments available that may be more effective at treating the scarring that comes from a condition like rosacea, such as Micro Needling.
