Which treatments are available for rosacea?
For patients with visible blood vessels, laser treatment can be used to shrink them.
The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy that target only the blood vessel, leaving surrounding skin unharmed.
Skin peels help rosacea 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. They can also help to reduce inflammation and promote skin healing. Our peels vary in strength and your practitioner will recommend which one is best for you.
There is a range of oral and topical medications available and these 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. Your practitioner can create a product pack unique to your concerns.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The exact number of treatments you’ll need depends on the severity of your symptoms. On average, three treatments every seven to 14 days are initially required to get excellent results. After this, your practitioner will discuss a maintenance plan. During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss a complete treatment plan with you to suit your needs and finances.
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.
