Rosacea & Facial Redness, Flushing Face, at Chester Laser Clinic
Rosacea, flushing of the facial skin, visible facial blood vessels, is a common chronic skin condition that tends to affect the face. We can provide a long term solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins and red spots in just a few quick and easy treatments. Rosacea occurs on both male and female skin for a number of reasons including age, alcohol, stress, trauma, smoking and sun exposure.
Treatments For Rosacea
We use light energy to lighten or remove pigmented lesions with our IPL laser. Each pulse is designed to produce specific light wavelengths, which are then absorbed by the problem patches of melanin. By rapidly absorbing the light energy, these high concentrations of melanin break down, reducing your pigmentation problem and leaving skin rejuvenated. Following treatment, you should see a reduction in pigmentation and notice that skin is smoother and feels rejuvenated. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) also successfully treats red blood vessels on the body and legs.
Signs and symptoms of Rosacea may include:
- Facial redness - persistent flushing of the facial skin, permanent redness, visible blood vessels underneath the surface of the skin, a burning and stinging sensation on the cheeks and in the most severe cases.
- Enlarged nose - rarely, rosacea can thicken the skin on the nose, causing the nose to appear bulbous (Rhinophyma). This occurs more often in men than in women.
- Irritation around the eyes - about half of the people who have rosacea also experience eye dryness, irritation and swollen, reddened eyelids.
