Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition of the skin on the face. It has many appearances and can be very unsightly. Most commonly, it involves blushy redness and the development of many tiny veins. It is often accompanied by acne. Sometimes it causes growth of the nose (Rhinophyma).

Medically speaking, Rosacea is pretty much harmless. However, it can take a massive emotional toll, as its sufferers are usually very self-conscious.

Rosacea usually shows up later in life. It generally hits you after you've reached your 40s. It runs in families. It seems to be more prevalent in people with fair skin and women, but it tends to be more severe in men.

What Causes Rosacea?
The cause of Rosacea is not clear. There are theories that it is skin condition, a blood vessel condition, or even a nervous system condition. With the variety of theories out there it's obvious no one really has any idea what causes Rosacea.

The only factor that is known to speed up the development of Rosacea is sun exposure. Although emotions, some foods, exercise, and alcohol can make Rosacea look worse, this is only a temporary effect. None of these things actually cause progression of the condition.

Rosacea Solutions

Second Chance Facial Rejuvenation®

This total body holistic approach produces the most dramatic improvement in Rosacea, usually within 1-2 sessions. Many clients have reported complete resolution of their symptoms

Topical Therapies:
Although there are numerous products, over-the-counter and prescription, that supposedly help  Rosacea, they are only effective at treating the acne component. They will do nothing for the redness and blood vessels, and that is the most common feature of rosacea that people want to eliminate. The most common treatment for the vessels are laser and IPL  (Intense Pulsed Light)

Laser Vein Treatment:
Lasers treat the larger blood vessels. Laser energy is selectively absorbed by hemoglobin, the pigment in blood. This produces a rapid rise in temperature that damages the vessel wall resulting in injury to the vein. If the injury is bad enough, the vein dies. It will be absorbed by the body over two to three weeks. It will not return.

Photorejuvenation:
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is used following laser to get the smaller blood vessels. The IPL's intense light is absorbed by blood inside the vessels. The heat in the blood damages the vessel it is sitting in. The body then repairs this minor damage, and in doing so the blood vessels are absorbed by the body and disappear.

As an added bonus the rosacea around my nose and chin has pretty much been eliminated." L Bellamy, Edmonton Alberta, Canada, See photo gallery  for before and after photo.
