Rosacea is a skin condition that manifests as visible redness and blood vessels in the face. There are a few different types of rosacea, but they most commonly show up in the center of the face on areas like the cheeks and nose. Sometimes, it can look similar to acne and even cause pimples and red bumps. Rosacea is a long-term skin condition and doesn’t currently have a cure.
The exact causes of rosacea still aren’t well understood. Some of the proposed causes include immune responses, skin mites, reactions to skin proteins, and certain types of bugs. Some factors can make people more likely to have rosacea, like family history, chronic acne, and light skin tone. Anyone can have rosacea, however.
Rosacea tends to flare up with certain triggers. Some of the most common include:
- Hot drinks
- Spicy foods
- Sun and wind
- Skin and hair products
Rosacea is best treated with a multifaceted approach that includes professional treatments, rosacea-friendly skincare, and managing your specific triggers. Our team will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
IPL is an effective way to reduce redness and visible blood vessels that come with rosacea. It works by targeting the red pigment in blood vessels with light energy pulses, generating heat and damaging the tissue. This causes the blood vessels to fade from the surface of the skin. It can also help alleviate swelling and pimples that sometimes accompany rosacea.
A rosacea-friendly skincare regimen can help prevent flare-ups and manage redness. We offer a variety of professional-grade skincare product systems designed specifically for redness and rosacea, and our team can help you create an effective at-home regimen.
