Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea mainly affects the face and can do so in varying degrees. A red acne-like rash, due to small blood vessels becoming visible, and a burning or itching sensation can make people feel very uncomfortable in social situations. Strenuous exercise, stress and sunlight can also make the condition worse.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes visible redness across the face. Blood vessels appear more prominent, and small, red, pus-filled lumps can also appear. Around 1 in 10 people are thought to develop the condition in their lifetime. It happens in both men and women and usually starts between the ages of 30 and 50.

What causes rosacea?

Rosacea can be caused by a variety of different factors, known as ‘triggers,’ which can cause the skin to flare up into redness at any moment. Sunlight and hairspray are common rosacea triggers, in addition to heat, stress, spicy foods and alcohol.

How serious is rosacea?

While many people regard rosacea as a cosmetic condition, it is a serious medical condition that is often underdiagnosed and undertreated. It can also cause considerable distress by impacting the daily function of a patient, disrupting their social relationships and generally reducing their overall quality of life. The main reason that rosacea is so serious is that there is no known cure – it does not go away. It can go into remission and there can be lapses in flare-ups, but if a patient suffers from the condition, then a flare-up is always possible. If left untreated, it can cause permanent skin damage that can leave a patient with permanent redness.

How to get rid of rosacea

Although there is no known cure for rosacea, we have several non-surgical rosacea treatment options that can greatly reduce the symptoms. During a personalised consultation, we can assess your rosacea condition closely, before recommending a suitable treatment that will work for your own individual skincare needs. We have a diverse range of leading rosacea removal treatments, including rosacea creams and light-based rosacea treatments.

Best Rosacea Treatments

LUMENIS IPL  is a laser rosacea treatment that can shrink blood vessels and replace damaged red skin with healthy, younger-looking tissues. The treatment works by using restorative pulses of light-based energy to stimulate and rejuvenate the production of healthy skin cells. This gives patients clearer and smoother-looking skin so that they no longer need to constantly resort to using heavy foundation to camouflage rosacea symptoms.

Forever Young BBL™ is a revolutionary, non-surgical light-based therapy treatment that stimulates healthy skin cells, minimises skin damage, and treats multiple skin conditions, including rosacea.

Cosmeceutical skincare ranges may also be beneficial for rosacea sufferers. These medical-grade creams contain super high concentrations of active ingredients that help facilitate cell renewal at a much better rate than high-street brands. Obagi skin offers one of the best creams for rosacea in the UK with its unique rosacea skincare products. Their all in-one-system treats the redness, flushing, and pustules associated with rosacea to help restore beautiful, flawless and blemish-free skin.
