It’s that time of year, summer is officially over, the autumn leaves are falling and the glowing sun tans have officially faded, leaving a calm coolness to the air. Often with the swift turn in temperature, the kids returning to school and one by one everybody getting a cold, approximately 1 in 10 of us will begin to see some signals of redness around the nose.
It is most common in the face redness around the nose and can begin with slight niggly thread or spider veins.
Up until recently, rosacea was believed to only affect those of european descent, but it has since been proven that patients of all ethnicities are also prone to this condition. This worsens over time if left untreated, which is why it is very important to seek medical advice if you begin to show visible signs.
What to do about Redness around nose
Although there is no official cure for rosacea /redness around the nose, it can be treated with a number of different technologies such as a Pulsed Dye Laser or the Cutera Excel V.
Being a laser-based non-surgical cosmetic practice, we often see a large increase in patients visiting us to treat indications with laser after the holidays. This is particularly the case when it comes to treating redness around the nose such as rosacea thread veins or spider veins.
You may be advised to avoid certain food types such as spicy food, hot soups, chocolate, specific citrus fruits and also things like cheese and spinach.
What to do about redness
In Europe it is estimated that rosacea affects up to 1 in 10 people many of whom are unaware of treatments such as the Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser and the Cutera Excel V.
Treatments are usually ongoing and our patients have seen significant reduction in the redness around the nose with just a few treatments. Whilst further treatment may be required, we work to ensure that we keep it under control so you can be safe in the knowledge that it’s managed.
Due to the nature of the treatment it is important that the patient is not overly exposed to sun before or after conducting the treatment, which is why this time of year is perfect to start to explore treating your signs of redness around the nose.
What to do
You would visit PHI Clinic where a full consultation will be conducted and a patch test performed on the specific area of the face to ensure that we can administer the treatment safely.
Once patient is deemed appropriate for treatment we can commence the course; each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and you would return 4 to 6 weeks later for a second treatment.
