Rosacea is typically characterized by flushing and redness in the center of the face, dilated and broken blood vessels. Skin may be swollen and sensitive. With repeated dilatation of the blood vessels they begin to be larger at rest, leading to a constant redness of the skin, with visible red lines.
This can be a very difficult condition for those effected, who may feel troubled and self-conscious. While rosacea most commonly affects fair-skinned women over 35, men are also affected.
Lifestyle management is an important part of managing rosacea. Avoidance of triggers such as sun, wind, caffeine and alcohol all help to reduce flushing and prevent vessels from worsening.
At RevitalizeMD, we take a combined approach that includes identifying lifestyle factors, prescription medications, quality skin care and make-up products. We also offer a variety of very effective laser treatments including BBL, Halo, Microneedling and PRP (Platelet-rich plasma), which all deliver results for our client’s rosacea concerns.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology website, laser treatment is recommended as the first line of treatment to target and lessen the size of the existing blood vessels. Treatments that boost the skin’s elasticity by encouraging collagen production, such as the Halo, support the skin and reduce redness ensuring a smooth, even tone for your complexion.
