Skiin Spotlight : Rosacea
Skin Clinic Melbourne

*Rosacea is a frustrating skin condition that begins subtly, with the intermittent appearance of redness along the cheeks and nose. The primary signs of rosacea include redness of the face, small visible spider vein-like blood vessels, a burning or stinging sensation, a red or bulbous nose, watery or irritable eyes, and acne-like sores. Rosacea is more common among fair-skinned people (particularly those of Northern European descent) and is more prevalent for women than men, but men typically are more severely affected when it develops.

While rosacea is a harmless cosmetic concern, it often causes a loss in self-esteem and embarrassment during social and professional encounters.

The causes of rosacea are unknown, but it occurs when there is swelling of the blood vessels just underneath the skin’s surface. There are currently no known cures for rosacea, but there are very affective therapies available that have been proven to control or reverse its signs and symptoms. SKIIN’S TOP TREATMENT FOR ROSACEA The Laser Genesis procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse excessive redness and help manage large pores, uneven skin texture, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Laser Genesis has been shown to aid in the resolution of the vascular telangiectasia (small spider veins) and general erythema (superficial reddening of the skin) often associated with Rosacea. How many treatments will I need? On average, we find our clients require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every client’s condition and needs vary.
