Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea, a skin condition that typically affects individuals over the age of 30, is characterized by redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. It can also be accompanied by small bumps or pimples on the skin's surface. Additionally, rosacea may cause burning and soreness in the eyes. Although the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, certain factors can exacerbate the condition. Common triggers for a flare-up include sun and wind exposure, exercise, consumption of spicy food and alcohol, stress, and exposure to hot baths and weather. While there is no known cure for rosacea, there are various treatment options available to help improve the appearance and condition of the skin, as well as prevent further worsening. Treatment modalities may include medication and laser treatments, among others.

Symptoms of Rosacea

The symptoms of rosacea can manifest differently in individuals depending on the type of rosacea they have:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: This type is characterized by flushing and persistent redness of the skin, often accompanied by visible blood vessels.
  • Ocular rosacea: As the name suggests, this type affects the eyes, causing redness, irritation, and swelling of the eyelids. In some cases, the person may also develop a sty-like appearance.
  • Papulopustular rosacea: This type presents with swelling, redness, and acne-like breakouts on the skin.
  • Phymatous rosacea: This type is characterized by thickened skin with a bumpy texture, typically affecting the nose, chin, and other facial areas.

It's important to note that rosacea symptoms can vary from person to person and may change over time. It's best to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.

Treatment options at Drypskin:

  • BBL: Broadband Light (BBL) treatment can effectively address rosacea by using targeted light energy to heat and eliminate broken blood vessels on the skin's surface. This process is performed gently and safely, without causing damage to the surrounding skin. In addition, the light energy from BBL also stimulates collagen growth, which can promote a healthier and more even-toned complexion.
  • Laser: During this procedure, a focused laser beam is directed towards the affected area of the skin with rosacea. The heat energy generated by the laser helps to collapse the unwanted blood vessels, thereby reducing the redness associated with rosacea.
  • PRP: This therapy has been shown in studies to effectively control and alleviate the symptoms of rosacea, with significant improvements observed after one to two PRP treatments. The results can last for 6 to 18 months, and additional treatments may be necessary to maintain the healing process.
