What is Rosacea?

Rosacea manifests as persistent redness, often concentrated on the central face, including the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead.

Small, visible blood vessels may appear, along with bumps resembling acne, known as papules and pustules. Flare-ups may cause swelling and a sensation of warmth or burning. Concerns include potential impact on self-esteem, discomfort, and the risk of ocular rosacea affecting the eyes.

What are the causes of Rosacea?

The precise causes of rosacea remain unclear, but a combination of genetic, environmental, and vascular factors are likely to play a role.

Genetic predisposition and abnormalities in the blood vessels may contribute, alongside immune system reactions and microbial factors. Triggers for rosacea flare-ups vary among individuals but commonly include exposure to sunlight, hot or cold weather, spicy foods, alcohol, stress, certain skincare products, and medications that dilate blood vessels.

Emotional factors like anxiety can also exacerbate symptoms. Additionally, Demodex mites, which naturally inhabit facial skin, may proliferate excessively in rosacea patients, potentially aggravating inflammation. Understanding and managing these triggers are crucial aspects of rosacea management.

What is the treatment for Rosacea?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy using the M22 laser by Lumenis selectively targets the blood vessels responsible for rosacea-related redness and flushing, reducing their visibility.

By emitting specific wavelengths of light, IPL constricts these blood vessels, diminishing redness and promoting a more even skin tone. Additionally, targeted skincare products formulated with gentle, non-irritating ingredients can help soothe inflammation, strengthen the skin barrier, and minimise flare-ups.

Ingredients like niacinamide, azelaic acid, and green tea extract possess anti-inflammatory properties and can effectively calm rosacea-prone skin. Combining IPL treatment with a consistent skincare regimen tailored to rosacea can significantly alleviate symptoms and improve overall skin appearance.
