WHAT IS ROSACEA?

Rosacea is a common disorder that mainly affects skin on the face. It causes redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. Over time, the redness can become more intense, taking on a ruddy appearance. Blood vessels may become visible.

WHAT CAUSES ROSACEA?

The cause of rosacea is still unknown, and there is no cure. However, research has allowed skincare ofessionals to find ways to treat the condition by minimizing its symptoms. There are four subtypes of rosacea. Each subtype has its own set of symptoms. It is possible to have more than one subtype of rosacea at a time.

Rosacea’s trademark symptom is small, red, pus-filled bumps on the skin that are present during flare-ups. Typically, rosacea affects only skin on your nose, cheeks, and forehead. Flare-ups often occur in cycles. This means that you will experience symptoms for weeks or months at a time, the symptoms will go away, and then return.

WHAT AREA SOME ROSACEA TREATMENT OPTIONS?

At Ellemes Medical Spa, we make sure to choose the most appropriate medical treatment for our patients. Every skin type is different from others and hence, responds differently to treatment courses. After we completely analyze your skin type and sensitivity we will begin your treatment. Multiple options are available for the control of Rosacea which are briefed as follows.

  • IPL:

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, treatments, which use light pulses to penetrate inside the skin. This constricts your blood vessels and balances your natural skin tone. This is a highly effective treatment in helping patients suffering with rosacea

  • Facials:

Regular calming facials can help lessen the effects of rosacea and can be very effective in reducing the excess redness

In addition to the above, there are various topical treatments available that can help confront rosacea. Set up a consultation with our skin consultants to get a customized skincare routine based on your skin type.

A list of additional frequently asked questions.

1. What are the different types of rosacea?

The rosacea treatment options recommended for you largely depend on the type of rosacea you currently have. There are four types of rosacea, which are:

  • Subtype one, known as erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR), is associated with facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels.
  • Subtype two, papulopustular (or acne) rosacea, is associated with acne-like breakouts, and often affects middle-aged women.
  • Subtype three, known as rhinophyma, is a rare form associated with thickening of the skin on your nose. It usually affects men and is often accompanied by another subtype of rosacea.
  • Subtype four is known as ocular rosacea, and its symptoms are centered on the eye

2. What skin types are more prone to develop rosacea?

There are some factors that will make you more likely to develop rosacea than others. Rosacea often develops in people between the ages of 30 and 50. It is also more common in people who are fair-skinned and have blond hair and blue eyes.

There are also genetic links to rosacea. You are more likely to develop rosacea if you have a family history of the condition or if you have Celtic or Scandinavian ancestors. Women are also more likely to develop the condition than men. However, men who develop the condition often have more severe symptoms.

3. Which foods or drinks may trigger rosacea?

Foods and drinks that may trigger rosacea include:

  • hot foods and beverages
  • caffeine
  • dairy products
  • spices and seasonings that contain capsaicin, for example, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, and red pepper
  • alcohol, including wines and hard liquors
  • foods containing cinnamaldehyde, such as tomatoes, chocolate, and citrus fruits
