Treatments For Rosacea
There is a range of oral and topical medications which are capable of treating the redness, pimples, and bumps associated with rosacea. Such treatments are usually prescribed to gain immediate control over the condition, and subsequent long-term use of topical therapy is advised to maintain remission.
A gentle skin-care routine can be invaluable in helping to control rosacea. In general, non-irritating skin-care products are advisable and protection from sun exposure by using a strong sunscreen also helps.
When necessary, lasers and other medical and surgical devices may be used to reduce extensive redness, correct nose disfigurement and eradicate visible blood vessels.
For patients with visible blood vessels, laser treatment can be used to shrink them. The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy, which target only the blood vessel, leaving surrounding skin unharmed.
Peels help by exfoliating the top layers of skin, speeding up skin turnover and preventing pores from becoming clogged with dead skin cells, which can aggravate rosacea and cause flare ups. Our Mandelic Acid peels are ideal for those experiencing the skin sensitivity associated with Rosacea.
" I just wanted to turn back time because I’m young at heart and I don’t like to see an old woman looking back at me! I had four treatments in total and I barely recognise myself! It really works and I certainly look much younger! " - Lynn Shuck
Rosacea Treatment FAQs
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?
We can’t cure rosacea, but we can dramatically reduce the symptoms. By following the treatment plan agreed at your consultation, you should see a significant improvement in your skin. In your consultation, your doctor will discuss your specific condition and the results you can expect to see. It should be noted that a small number of people do not respond to treatment for a variety of reasons.
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.
