Rosacea is a chronic (long-term) disease that affects the skin and sometimes the eyes. The disorder is characterized by redness, pimples, and, in advanced stages, thickened skin. Rosacea usually affects the face; other parts of the upper body are only rarely involved.
Who Gets Rosacea?
Approximately 14 million people in the United States have rosacea. It most often affects adults between the ages of 30 and 60. Rosacea is more common in women (particularly during menopause) than men. Although rosacea can develop in people of any skin color, it tends to occur most frequently and is most
apparent in people with fair skin.
What Does Rosacea Look Like?
There are several symptoms and conditions associated with rosacea. These include frequent flushing, vascular rosacea, inflammatory rosacea, and several other conditions involving the skin, eyes, and nose.
What Causes Rosacea?
Doctors do not know the exact cause of rosacea but believe that some people may inherit a tendency to develop the disorder. People who blush frequently may be more likely to develop rosacea. Some researchers believe that rosacea is a disorder where blood vessels dilate too easily, resulting in flushing and redness.
We treat the redness and broken veins of Rosacea with Intense Pulse Light . This delivers a pulse of light to the broken vessels causing them to heal up and fade away.
How does it work?
It is believed that the IPL has two actions that help in Rosacea. Firstly red thread veins absorb the light energy, this makes them hot. This damage encourages the body to reabsorb them, improving the appearance. Secondly the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin this stimulates new collagen and collagen re-modelling, this improves the support of the small blood vessels which helps to delay the development of more thread veins.
