Rosacea is a type of skin inflammation that affects the face. Most commonly seen in fair-skinned Caucasians, it’s characterised by facial redness, flushing, pimples, and dilated blood vessels. In severe cases, men will experience an enlarged and reddened nose known as Rhinophyma.
It is a non-contagious, chronic and incurable skin condition that has periodic ups and downs. It appears on the central region of the face, mainly the cheeks, chin, forehead, and the lower half of the nose. Its exact causes are not known and there is no outright cure, however certain triggers can cause the condition to worsen or intensify. Some of these include:
Although there are no dangers associated with this condition, many sufferers feel embarrassed, self-conscious, and lack confidence. Thankfully, Skiin offers rosacea treatment options in Melbourne to help reduce symptoms.
There are a number of treatment options available to ease the symptoms of rosacea.
A variety of oral and topical antibiotics are commonly used, and some antibiotics reduce inflammation while providing antibacterial properties. Additionally, avoidance of any known triggers will help, as well as the use of gentle skincare products so as to not aggravate the condition further. Laser light therapy can also be used to correct the redness caused by this condition.
Laser treatment for rosacea is increasingly becoming a popular choice for sufferers, as it causes minimal downtime and discomfort. At Skiin, we offer laser treatments and chemical peels for rosacea that can help bring clarity back to your facial skin. These methods stimulate the skin to promote cell renewal, helping to reduce inflammation and stabilising redness.
Laser genesis gently heats the upper dermis level of the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen is the structural protein found in connective tissues and is an important component of the skin, providing strength and a degree of elasticity which gives skin a youthful appearance. When the treatment is required to reduce redness, additional heat is generated in the dilated capillaries to ‘close down’ the tiny veins and capillaries that cause a red appearance on the skin. The treatment produces no side effects for most patients, but requires multiple sessions to achieve the best results. Most people require a series of at least 6 treatments, carried out every 4 weeks, to obtain optimal results. Please note that you will not see immediate results, as the procedure has a gradual but consistent effect. Our Laser Genesis Machine is imported from the USA and provides the best care for your skin.
