Rosacea Remedies and Skin Redness Treatment

Rosacea is a common skin condition that appears as persistent redness or blushing in the face – usually on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead – and may be accompanied by visible blood vessels. Red bumps or pimples may also develop on the skin, which is often referred to as acne rosacea. Rosacea typically appears after age thirty, and is more common in those who are fair-skinned and blush easily such as those of northern European descent.

The exact cause of rosacea has not been determined, although doctors believe it may be attributed to microscopic skin mites, fungus or bacteria, abnormal inflammatory response, sun damage, or genetics. Rosacea sufferers often find that certain triggers will cause their condition to flare-up. These triggers may include certain foods or drinks, weather, stress, overexertion, or certain medical conditions.

Although there is no known cure for rosacea, there are Rosacea remedies available that can significantly reduce symptoms and keep flare-ups under control. These include: medications, use of gentle skincare productslaser treatments, and daily use of a chemical-free sunblock. Rosacea sufferers can also manage their symptoms by identifying and controlling the triggers that cause their flare-ups.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Rosacea is often mistaken for acne, eczema, or a skin allergy. If you notice peristant redness within your cheeks and nose, or you flush easily, you may have rosacea. A visit to a dermatologist will confirm the diagnosis. Rosacea appears to be more common among fair-skinned individuals and affects an estimated 1 in 20 people. Although the causes of rosacea are not fully understood and there is no cure, there are a number of ways to relieve symptoms.

Unfortunately, the redness associated with rosacea is likely to worsen as you get older. Many people with rosacea are able to identify those things that tend to trigger flare-ups (certain food, drinks, weather, activities). Avoiding these triggers will help control the symptoms, however this is not a cure for the condition.

Rosacea is treated using BBL™ BroadBand Light. During the treatment, light energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin (blood pigment) within the tiny vessels that cause skin redness, causing them to coagulate. Once the skin has been treated, the redness will diminish over time as the tiny vessels are resorbed by the body.

For optimal results, most patients require 3-4 BBL™ treatments spaced approximately one month apart. As you proceed through the treatment series, you will see less and less redness in your skin, and a more radiant complexion. Yearly maintenance treatments will likely be necessary to keep the redness under control.

Results from BBL™ can be maintained for some time with proper skin care at home. Gentle skin care products and daily use of a chemical-free sunscreen are essential. You can also manage your symptoms by identifying and controlling the triggers that cause your flare-ups.
