Rosacea - Combination of Treatments Needed
There are many things like avoiding trigers, medical skin care products, topical antibacterials, topical anti-inflammatories, oral antibacterials, oral retinoids (isotretinoin), lasers (Cutera Excel-V KTP laser) and light based devices (blue/red light, IPL/BBL, PDT with metvix or levulan) to treat your rosacea. Skin care products that I have found great results with are the following:
VivierSkin® HEXAM Cleanser - Rosemary extract, grape seed extract, and vitamin C aid in thoroughly removing environmental pollutants, excess oil and makeup. This is an oil free, alcohol free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic cleanser.
SkinCeuticals® Redness Neutralizer - Formulated with NeurMed Complex to help neutralize the environmental triggers that exacerbate redness. Also contains biomimetic peptides to cool the skin, provide instant relief and help alleviate and heat sensation.
ViverSkin® LEXXEL Moisturizer - This cream calms, soothes, and helps reduce signs of redness, inflammation, irritation and bacteria. Contains hexamidine, an antimicrobial with powerful anti-redness properties.
EltaMD® UV Physicial Broad Spectrum SPF 41 - Contains zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and is chemical free, natural UV protection. Water resistant. Light tint.
For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with your condition.
