Each patient is affected to a different degree and there is a range of symptoms:

  • Facial redness
  • Bumps
  • Pimples
  • Skin thickening
  • Enlargement of the nose
  • Eye irritation
  • Enlarged blood vessels

Anyone can be affected by this condition; neglecting it is not recommended since it can progress to a severe state.

Rosacea Triggers

Like many other skin conditions, rosacea outbreaks can be triggered by stress; however, there is a host of other causes:

  • Foods
  • Heat
  • Medications
  • Beverages
  • Medical conditions
  • Physical exertion
  • Skin Care products

It is important for newly-diagnosed patients to keep a diary of daily activities and diet. This is the key to understanding the causes of and avoiding flare ups in the future.

Treatment

There is currently no cure; however, there are effective treatments. Typically, a dermatologist diagnoses the problem and prescribes oral and topical medication. IPL treatments, which reduce and correct redness and removes visible blood vessels, can be of great help with flare-ups. Rejuvenation Spa carries a full line a gentle skin care products and sunscreens. It’s important to employ a gentle skin care routine to avoid flare-ups. Skin care products should be fragrance-free, and patients should test products before purchasing to be sure they are not irritating. An experienced professional like Christi can help you select the right products for you. Medical-grade sun protection should be worn every day to protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Overexposure to the sun can irritate the skin. Wearing a hat when outdoors helps protect the skin too. Caring for skin affected by rosacea requires a commitment to daily maintenance. With the right products and targeted treatment, rosacea can go into remission.
