Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness of the face. Short periods of redness or flushing can be the first indicators of this common, yet often misunderstood skin condition. Rosacea is most commonly found on the face and can also appear as rosacea spots.
Rosacea causes are still unknown, but it is likely to be related to abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face which react to microscopic bacteria found on the face and cause the redness. Research has shown us that there are common triggers of rosacea that can make the symptoms worse which include stress, hot drinks, alcohol or caffeine, spicy foods and continuous exposure to sunlight. These triggers will vary depending on each person but could be a good place to start reducing the flushing redness.
Unfortunately there is no permanent treatment for rosacea. However understanding what triggers it in your lifestyle along with laser treatments at Dr. Victoria will give you clear skin and a beautiful complexion you won’t want to hide. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and ClearSkin Laser treatments can reduce redness and help give you a more even skin tone.
