Rosacea

Introduction To Rosacea Treatment

Over 45 million people across the globe are affected by rosacea, which, while not life-threatening, can certainly cause self-confidence issues for a sufferer. There are various forms that rosacea can take, whether that is redness, blushing, pustules, small visible blood vessels, and raised spots or lumps.

Rosacea can also appear on various parts of the body, but the most common area is the face – cheeks, nose and around the eyes. There are also many contributing factors which cause rosacea: diet, exercise, alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks, sunlight, stress and also hereditary factors.

Those suffering from rosacea may find that their skin becomes sensitive to skincare products, often leading to stinging or burning sensation when using these. Over time, symptoms can worsen as the skin thickens, meaning early treatment is key to long-term solutions.

While topical prescriptions and short courses of antibiotics can help to ease symptoms in the short-term, treatments like IPL (intense pulsed light) can make a difference in the long-term. Similar to laser technology, this bright light uses a range of filters to target only the skin affected by rosacea.

Treatments are generally continuous in order for ongoing reduction of rosacea, and though further treatment may be required, our clinicians work to ensure results for every patient. At PHI Clinic, we work with you to find the right solutions for your lifestyle and skin type.

Factors To Consider

While the direct cause of rosacea is not yet fully understood, we know that there are some factors which can trigger the symptoms of this skin condition. Alcohol, spicy foods, caffeine and cheese can all activate a flare-up, while aerobic exercise increases the severity for shorter periods. Age, skin type and genetics can also play a major role in the likelihood of being affected.

Up until recently, rosacea was believed to only affect those of white ethnicity, but it has since been proven that patients of colour are also prone to this condition. If left alone, rosacea will worsen over time, making it important to seek medical advice to treat such a condition in a timely manner.
