Rosacea Treatment in Cardiff

Many people live with the rosacea without realising that there are treatments on the market that can dramatically improve the symptoms of the skin condition. At our new sk:n clinic in Cardiff we offer a range of skin treatments that can reduce these symptoms.

Depending on how severe your rosacea is, there are a number of approaches that can be used to treat the reddening skin condition. Antibiotics, creams and lotions are the first port of call. Sunscreen can also be helpful, as it protects the skin from the irritation caused by ultraviolet light. If these fail, a glycolic acid facial wash can help to remove the dead skin cells that aggravate this condition. We also apply laser therapy to treat the red veins that go along with rosacea.

“I have lived with rosacea for the majority of my life, and have tried every cream available. I was amazed at how effectively my laser therapy at sk:n was, from the first treatment my complexion had already improved!” Sally, Cardiff

How does rosacea treatment work?

Depending on how severe your rosacea is, there are a number of approaches that can be used to treat the reddening skin condition. Antibiotics, creams and lotions are the first port of call. Sunscreen can also be helpful, as it protects the skin from the irritation caused by ultraviolet light. If these fail, a glycolic acid facial wash can help to remove the dead skin cells that aggravate this condition. We also apply laser therapy to treat the red veins that go along with rosacea.

How will I feel during rosacea treatment?

Some slight discomfort may be felt during laser treatment, but this is well tolerated by the majority of patients.

Is rosacea treatment the right treatment for me?

With the range of rosacea treatments available at sk:n, your specialist will be able to advise you on which approach holds the most promise for you. If you have a tan, then you will need to allow this to fade before laser treatment, as the procedure will not be effective otherwise.

What happens after rosacea treatment?

Sometimes, laser treatment can leave you with slight bruising and swelling, but this soon settles. In the very rare instance that pain or infection occurs, simple measures such as paracetamol, Aloe Vera gel and antibacterial cream solve the problem.
