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.
