Laser Treatment To Reduce Facial Flushing - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

Living with any skin condition isn't easy, especially when it's on visible parts of the body. Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is a skin disorder leading to nose pimples and redness on the forehead, cheekbones, and chin, and in some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears.

Rosacea is often an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition for the sufferer, with the inflamed pimples and redness of rosacea looking a great deal like acne. One of the first signs of rosacea is the tendency to flush or blush easily. Many people notice that the condition typically begins at any time between the ages of 30 and 50 and it's likely to affect people who have previously suffered from acne or severe acne.

Although anyone can get this skin condition, some people are more likely to get rosacea than others, including:
* Women (especially during menopause)
* People with fair skin
* Adults between the ages of 30 and 60.

Primary Signs of Rosacea are:
  • Flushing - Frequent redness of the face which looks like blushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent Redness - Facial redness is one of the most common signs of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that doesn't go away.
  • Papulopustular Rosacea - Bumps and pimples. Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
  • Visible Blood Vessels - Many people with rosacea will have small blood vessels (spider veins) become visible on the skin.
  • Inflamed Eyes/Eyelids - This can cause symptoms such as dryness, itching, gritty sore eyes or excess tears.
  • A Swollen Nose - This occurs mainly to men, the nose becomes red, larger, and bumpy.
  • Thicker Skin - The skin on the forehead, chin, cheeks, or other areas can become thicker because of rosacea.

Ways to Treat Rosacea:

* Ointments, creams and oral medicines are most effective in people with papulopustular rosacea
* Oral antibiotics and cream antibiotics with anti-inflammatory properties work by constricting blood vessels so that the skin doesn't look as red, and can also be used to treat the inflammation.
* Laser technology can successfully treat Rosacea and can help remove visible blood vessels, but it is highly unlikely that these treatments are available on the NHS.

Laser treatment provides an effective therapy for treating this upsetting condition. Excellent results are possible with the proper use of laser energies, not only in the cosmetic appearance but also in a marked reduction in the upsetting flushing attacks of Rosacea.
