Rosacea

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a quite common skin condition that presents symptoms of redness in the face (skin). However, sometimes, there are small broken capillaries or larger facial vessels. With rosacea, your face may appear flush or red. Even patches of little pus-filled bumps can appear.


This condition affects over 16 million people in America; however, rosacea doesn't present any known health concerns, but it can leave you feeling less desirable or self-conscious.

The good news is that laser therapy can treat rosacea quite effectively. The laser targets water, melanin, and hemoglobin (blood) inside your skin and stimulates the production of collagen. So not only will the damaged blood vessels disappear and be replaced by the new healthy ones, but your whole face will be rejuvenated. This means that it will take a lot longer for chronic rosacea to reaper and for your skin to look red again.

What causes Rosacea in your skin?

It's not known what actually causes rosacea, but there are some factors that are common with this skin disorder. When it is hot outside or when you have emotional stress, you may notice rosacea symptoms flare-up. What this means is that you can try to avoid things that are known to trigger rosacea, which for the significant part, include extreme temperatures and conditions. Always wear sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight, shield your face from the cold wind, and avoid going out during both scorching and icy days.

 

Also, you should avoid anything that emulates these conditions. We advise you to avoid taking long, hot baths and not to eat hot or spicy food. Be mindful of your alcohol intake and blood pressure drugs or steroid that you put on your skin. And as a rule of thumb, always try to keep your skin moisturized and supple with gentle skincare products.

 

There may not be a cure. Still, here at Alpharetta laser hair removal and anti-aging, we offer laser therapy treatments that work to properly manage the symptoms of rosacea, giving you the confidence to show your face in public without any embarrassment.

Symptoms of rosacea

With rosacea, sometimes the symptoms can seem that you blush more easily than others. And the redness can start to spread slowly and move beyond the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. Sometimes the ears check and back are affected if left untreated. It's unfortunate, but rosacea symptoms can frequently go away and return at a later date.
