 What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disease that causes facial redness. You may mistake some of its characteristics – small, red, pus-filled bumps or pustules – for acne. In fact, rosacea has been called adult acne or acne rosacea, but the disease has little to do with the pimples and blackheads that commonly afflict teenagers. It’s also a misconception that this red-faced condition is caused by drinking alcoholic beverages.

Who does it affect?

Rosacea affects mostly adults, usually people with fair skin, between the ages of 30 and 60. Although it’s more common in women, men may develop more apparent signs of the disorder. It’s not life-threatening, but it can affect your appearance and lower your self-esteem.

What causes Rosacea?

The cause of rosacea is unknown, but researchers believe it’s likely due to some combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Although the exact cause of rosacea remains a mystery, a number of factors can aggravate it or make it worse by increasing blood flow to the surface of your skin. Avoid any activity or ingredients that might provoke an inflammatory reaction.

How is Rosacea treated?

At Solutions, we can prescribe medicine and other treatments for rosacea, such as our Rosacea Treatment Package mentioned above.  There is currently no cure for Rosacea, but with treatment, most people can control their symptoms and keep the disease from getting worse.

What is Laser Genesis?

The Laser Genesis procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse excessive redness and help manage large pores, uneven skin texture, redness (Rosacea) and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.  By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen re-growth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
