Could you have rosacea?
Rosacea is a common, chronic, incurable, adult acne-like skin condition that is easily controllable and manageable. Rosacea symptoms include redness of the face (easy facial blushing or flushing), and tiny red pimples and fine red lines (telengiectasias) on the facial skin. Rosacea can be mistaken for rosy cheeks, sunburn and quite often, acne. Rosacea triggers include alcohol, spicy food, emotional stress and heat. Unfortunately, untreated rosacea tends to worsen over time. Treating the tiny blood vessels with IPL is an effective way to reduce and control the symptoms of rosacea.
Rosacea Solutions with No-Down Time Laser Treatments
Rosacea, is a common condition of redness, coarse skin texture and the presence of telengiectasias ( tiny
broken capillaries) on the face. At times eruptions can resemble acne, become scaly or even oily. These skin changes most often occur after the 30's and can be a result of sun-damage in certain genetically pre-disposed skin types . Known triggers are spicy foods, alcohol, exercise, altitude and other extreme temperatures in the environment.
The good news is that these signs and symptoms can be readily treated with a variety of lasers. IPl lasers ( such as the LimeLight) will reduce the overall redness and flushing and vascular lasers such as Cutera's Coolglide will more selectively treat the more vessels and improve the skin texture.
