What is Rosacea?, Seattle, Washington

Having a clear, glowing complexion can boost your confidence and self-esteem as you go about your day. As such, it’s common for both men and women affected by rosacea to explore corrective skincare treatments to improve and look and feel of their faces. If you’re unfamiliar with rosacea and how a medical spa or family clinic can help mediate the issue, here’s some helpful information to review. 

Understanding Rosacea

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that results in inflammation, primarily on the face. Symptoms of rosacea include redness or blush that looks similar to sunburn on the cheeks, forehead, nose, or chin. Some patients with rosacea also experience pus-filled bumps, the appearance of small blood vessels, eye redness or irritation, and swollen excess tissue around the nose. 

What Causes this Skin Condition?

Corrective Skin CareWhile the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, corrective skincare professionals believe this condition is a result of environmental and hereditary factors. Patients may experience flare-ups of rosacea due to emotional stress, diet, red wine or alcohol, cosmetic products, spicy foods, or exposure to extreme sunlight and wind. Your risk of rosacea may increase based on your family history, smoking habits, sun damage, having a fair complexion, or age. 

What Corrective Skin Care Treatments are Available?

If you notice signs of rosacea, a medical spa is an excellent resource. A skincare professional can prescribe topical creams, antibiotics, or acne drugs to reduce redness. Laser skin treatments can also be a very effective way to reduce redness and minimize the appearance of blood vessels. On-going laser treatments coupled with lifestyle changes such as identifying triggers and wearing plenty of sunscreen can greatly improve your complexion.
