Rosacea is a common condition, with over 45 million affected, across the globe. Unfortunately, not many people are aware of the condition, so here at PHI Clinic London we are joining the Rosacea Awareness Month campaign to highlight a common concern that many people face.
Rosacea And Facial Redness
This rosacea awareness month follows on from the winter period where the sudden drop in temperature may have caused rosy cheeks for most but for some, redness occurs all year round. Forms of rosacea and redness can appear over time across the body, but are typically located on the face and chest area. This can be caused by a number of different factors including diet, exercise and hereditary factors.
The skin condition is not something that just affects the exterior; it also has a great impact on self-esteem, as it occurs in a very visible place. Recent studies show that more than 90 percent of rosacea patients said their condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, with 41 percent reporting that this caused suffers to avoid public contact and cancel social engagements.
The important thing to know, is that it can be treated!
Treatment For Rosacea
In order to address concerns effectively, it is best to tackle the concern straight away. By leaving the area of concern for a long period of time, this may make it harder to redness and rosacea to be treated.
VBeam uses an intense beam of light, delivered in long pulses which gently eliminates damaged or diseased cells. The laser can treat many vascular issues, such as rosacea, thread veins, some pigmentation, premature stretch marks and burn scars.
The light is absorbed safely and effectively by the pigment in the lesion that is being treated; the pigment is heated up and destroyed. The improvement can be very dramatic with some patients, and others will notice the change much more subtly. The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the individual, and it could be that some patients will need more sessions than others.
