Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by flushing or a reddening of the cheeks, nose, chin and/or forehead. It may also include the appearance of papules and pustules which are acne-like pimples and also development of small blood vessels in the skin
Rosacea mainly affects people with fair skin and while it can affect both men and women, it’s nearly three times more common in women. Symptoms tend to appear around or after the age of 30. The cause is unknown however there are common trigger factors such as stress, exposure to extremes of temperature, spicy food, alcohol and caffeine to name a few.
Currently there is no cure for rosacea, there are however oral medications, topical gels however we have found the Dermalux LED and cosmeceutical skin care offers a more complete therapeutic treatment to allow a clearer, calmer and more balanced looking complexion
