Rosacea treatment may take many forms from prevention to direct action. Unfortunately many people suffer unnecessarily for years. In early stages sufferers are often unaware that the problem is treatable, and may not seek help until the symptoms are pronounced and personally distressing.
Fortunately modern techniques such as IPL can reverse much of the damage caused by excessive blood flow, whilst careful diet and knowledge of triggers can control the condition over time.
Both topical and oral antibiotics may be effective in treating the mild cases of rosacea. In more severe cases anti-biotics such as Metronidazole are prescribed to help decrease spot formation. However, it is only minimally effective on facial redness and rarely affects the broken blood vessels or flushing aspects of rosacea.
Statement: Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition.Fact:
There are four rosacea sub types and each is different and so symptoms will vary, Different sufferers have different symptoms, some of these may be in the early stages and then develop into one of more of the following; bumps or pimples on the face, a tendency to flush or blush, a stinging or burning or sensation on the face, tight dry or itchy skin on the face, small visible blood vessels on the face and developing redness on the cheeks,forehead chin or nose, irritated eyes and or swollen eyelids.
Subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic rosacea). Facial Redness is typically flushing and persistent redness, visible blood vessels may also appear.
Case studies show extremely positive results for treatment of both acne and acne rosacea.
Acne-rosacea can be self-perpetuating, causing damage to surrounding tissue and weakening the dermal cells. Optimum results are obtained by treating both the cause and the associated skin damage producing the best long term results. Nutritional aspects are considered; the skin also reflects the internal health of the body.
We have developed a holistic approach which uses our own innovative three pronged technique.
• Manual Lymphatic Drainage
• IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
• Nutritional Therapy
Each of the above is effective when used on its own; however the skilled use of a combination of all three is even more effective. This approach is a breakthrough in the treatment and natural management of rosacea and acne rosacea.
At the Pulse Light Clinic we are dedicated to achieve the most favourable outcomes for our clients, and as part of our commitment to this, we monitor each and every client extensively.
In 2011 we witnessed and celebrated, successful treatment of Rosacea in hundreds of cases, including all four sub-types.
There is no known cure for Rosacea, however we at the Pulse Light Clinic direct our attention to accomplish a remission, this is our goal: few or no flushing episodes, paler/clearer complexion, and an absence of visible facial blood vessels.
Since 2002 The Pulse Light Clinic has specialized in IPL treatment for Rosacea. We have pioneered IPL techniques including multiple passes of Intense Pulsed light (IPL) to reach errant vessels under the skin.
These contribute greatly to facial flushing and redness and surface capillaries. We are able to achieve good clearance of telangiectasia and the chronic red face, as well as significantly decreasing the intensity and duration of the facial flush.
We have used most advanced IPL equipment, tried and tested against our rigorous standards of safety and performance. We have pushed the boundaries of what is possible using IPL technology.
Consequently, over the years we have amassed a wealth of understanding and clinical knowledge of the condition of Rosacea and its treatment. We strive for clinical excellence and are a results led clinic.
Rosacea (pronounced Rose AY Sha) is a chronic (long term), inflammatory skin disorder. It occurs in both men and women and may begin as early as the teenage years. The most common symptoms include:
The condition develops gradually as mild episodes of facial blushing or flushing which can lead to a permanent red face. Individuals with fair skin, particularly those of Scottish, Irish or Celtic descent are more predisposed to Rosacea. This condition is commonly known as “The curse of the Celts” although people with darker skins also suffer from Rosacea.
