Rosacea is the name given quite freely to describe any underlying form of redness on the skin. This condition can start with a slight blushing that can turn into a high red colouring or a red pimply rash on the cheeks and nose. The cause is thought to be due to an overactive innate immune system. It is normally a predisposition within your skin and will start to show between the ages of 25 to 30 and by your 40s you may start to see more flare ups.
Yes, with corneotherapy, which is based on new research. The principle behind it is to repair the top layers of skin (the stratum corneum and the lipid bilayers) and the lower layers where the inflammation resides.
We will start by strengthening, building and repairing the skin. If your skin becomes stronger you may not get as many flare ups or when you do, they will not be as bad or last as long. Advice, correct home care and LED treatments will be recommended to help with the inflammation.
I would recommend 10 LED treatments and for you to come into the salon twice a week for a facial to calm and restore the skin. Once you start to see an improvement, you can then come in for monthly treatments to maintain the improvements and to continue strengthening the skin.
That will depend on you. If you follow advice and look after your skin as I have recommended, then within 3 to 6 months we could see improvements.
There is no cure for rosacea yet. But you can control the condition and prevent it from affecting your every day appearance. There is no quick fix, it does take time and effort but the results are worth it in the end.
LED Light Therapy treatments together with the correct skincare routine can significantly improve the appearance of rosacea prone skin.
NOTE: there are new medications available from your G.P. These treatments help the problem from the inside. Some of these drugs do work and they are quick fixes but I’ve found that to really keep your rosacea under control it is best to work internally and topically at the same time.
Your diet and lifestyle will affect your skin in quite obvious ways.
