What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness, flushing, and bumps on the face, particularly on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. It typically affects adults and tends to be more common in women than in men. 

 

There are four subtypes of rosacea:

1: Erythematotelangiectatic

2: Papulopustular

3: Phymatous

4: Ocular

 

The erythematotelangiectatic subtype is characterised by persistent facial redness and visible blood vessels. The papulopustular subtype is marked by acne rosacea bumps and pustules. The phymatous subtype is characterised by thickened, bumpy skin and enlargement of the nose. The ocular subtype affects the eyes, causing dryness, irritation, and redness.

How to treat rosacea?

Whilst there is no permanent solution to Rosacea, there are a number of ways of controlling and reducing it. If left untreated this can worsen overtime and may cause further discomfort such as itchiness. Rosacea treatment depends on the severity and type of rosacea you have. 

 

  1. Topical medications: These are applied to the skin and may include antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and/or other medications that can help reduce redness and inflammation.
  2. Oral medications: These may include antibiotics or low-dose isotretinoin, which can help reduce inflammation and prevent acne-like bumps.
  3. Laser therapy: This treatment can help reduce redness and visible blood vessels. It can also reduce the size of enlarged pores and thickened skin.
  4. Avoiding triggers: It is important to identify and avoid any triggers that can cause flare-ups, such as sun exposure, alcohol, spicy foods, and stress.
  5. Skincare: Use gentle skincare products and avoid harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin. Moisturise regularly to prevent dryness.
  6. Lifestyle changes: Exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and manage stress to help prevent flare-ups

How to get rid of rosacea at PHI Clinic London?

Here at PHI Clinic we have a range of treatment options with an in-depth treatment process to help maintain and manage signs of rosacea, facial redness, acne rosacea and more. 

From a thorough consultation and skin analysis with Visia, our team of highly trained clinicians will advise the best course of treatment for you.

 

Laser treatment for rosacea


excelV+ 

By utilising a high-powered green laser, the Excel V+ treatment targets any irregularities in blood vessels and pigmentation. As a result, it helps the skin to regain a more natural and even complexion.

 

V Beam 

V Beam, or Pulsed Dye Laser, emits lengthy pulses of energy directed towards the epidermis - the skin's outermost layer - that is attracted to any redness on the skin. This technology coagulates the blood and cauterises veins to diminish the flushed appearance commonly associated with rosacea. 

 

M22

Intense Pulsed Light, commonly known as IPL, is a light therapy in the M22 that employs powerful pulses of light to target and treat various skin concerns. This enables us to address acne, rosacea, thread veins and various types of pigmentation in order to improve texture and tone.

What is the main cause of rosacea?

Rosacea causes are not yet known, but it is believed to be related to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Some research suggests that rosacea may be related to abnormalities in the immune system, as well as the nervous and vascular systems. 

 

The immune system may trigger inflammation and skin irritation in response to certain environmental or lifestyle factors, such as sun exposure, stress, alcohol consumption, spicy foods, and certain skincare products.
