Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory disorder characterised by facial redness, dilated capillaries, a burning or tingling sensation and sometimes lesions that look like acne (papules).

What causes Rosacea?

The common triggers of rosacea are sun exposure, certain chemicals in alcohol, temperature changes (i.e. sauna, heaters, air conditioning), hot and spicy food, hormonal changes, exercise and emotional factors (i.e. stress, anger, laughter, crying, embarrassment).

There is no cure for Rosacea, but the symptoms can be controlled effectively with an individual treatment plan, avoiding exuberating factors, and a skin management program.

Intense Pulsed Light or Laser treatment, destroys unsightly blood vessels via heat coagulation resulting in fewer noticeable vessels. This treatment can be slightly invasive although effective.
