Rosacea is a medical condition characterised by the enlargement of facial veins, resulting in a persistent red appearance. Rosacea typically begins after the age of thirty, but can occur earlier, manifesting as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead. Over time, the redness tends to worsen, becoming darker and more chronic.
There are several types of Rosacea, including erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (characterised by persistent facial redness and visible blood vessels), papulopustular rosacea (characterised by bumps and pimples), phymatous rosacea (causing skin thickening and enlargement, commonly affecting the nose), and ocular rosacea (affecting the eyes, causing irritation and redness). If left untreated, visible veins, bumps, pimples, swollen and bumpy noses, and irritated, watery, and bloodshot eyes can develop.
Rosacea Treatment Approaches
While there is currently no known cure for rosacea, various treatments can help manage its symptoms and reduce flare-ups. At Pulse Light Clinic, we take a comprehensive approach to rosacea treatment that encompasses both symptom relief and lifestyle adjustments.
IPL Treatment for Symptom Relief
Our primary treatment method is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which targets the haemoglobin in blood vessels. The IPL device emits a range of precisely calibrated light waves that pass through the skin and are absorbed by the haemoglobin. This process damages the blood vessel walls, triggering the body’s natural response to eliminate the damaged tissue. Subsequently, new cells replace the problem areas, resulting in clearer and healthier-looking skin.
BBL Treatment: Advanced Light Therapy
We utilise advanced BBL (Broadband Light) technology to effectively treat rosacea. The BBL machine emits gentle pulses of light that specifically target and reduce the redness associated with rosacea. This treatment helps to minimise visible blood vessels, facial redness, and other symptoms, resulting in clearer and more even-toned skin.
Rosacea Treatments work on:
- Facial redness
- Bumps and pimples
- Lifestyle Causes
- Dietary Causes
- Men and women
- Suitable for fair skin types
Lifestyle Changes and Nutritional Guidance
In addition to IPL treatment, we offer guidance from our nutritional therapist to address the underlying causes of rosacea. Lifestyle factors, such as stress, diet, and environmental triggers, can contribute to flare-ups. By making appropriate lifestyle adjustments and receiving tailored nutritional advice, you can minimise the impact of these triggers and better manage your rosacea. This combination sets us apart from other clinics and enhances the effectiveness of our treatment.

Rosacea Treatment - FAQs
What helps rosacea go away?
The cause of rosacea is still unidentified and at this time there is no cure. However, we can manage rosacea with IPL sessions and a nutritional diet, reducing redness and preventing it getting worse. Regular treatments will help manage rosacea.
What actually works for rosacea?
Strategies that can help include laser therapy, trigger avoidance, dietary changes, stress reduction, and gentle cleansing. Results may take time and vary between individuals, so be patient and communicate with our practitioners for a free consultation.
What is the main cause of rosacea?
The main causes of rosacea can depend on many factors including, food intolerances, stress, genetics, hormones or severe sunburn.
What are the five symptoms of rosacea?
The most well-known Rosacea symptoms are the below; however, you might have identified other less known symptoms, which doesn't mean they are less important.
First, you might evidence that your skin is often blushing or gets flushed easily, whether it's icy or very hot weather.
Other common symptoms are skin sensitivity, inflammation, following discomfort with a burning feeling and itchiness on the face. The appearance of tiny broken blood vessels that create redness is the typical first rosacea sign; additionally, you can notice thickened skin and/or persistent red pustules.
What are the types of Rosacea?
Rosacea has four subtypes and symptoms also vary from person to person. Symptoms may include facial blushing and flushing, burning, redness and small red bumps. These may come and go, and so the best way to find an answer is 'if you think you might be developing Rosacea', then visit a rosacea specialist; Pulse Light Clinic offers a free first consultation.
What to expect during Rosacea treatment?
It would be useful if you arrive with no makeup on. We apply a cold gel on the area to be treated. Dark glasses are also provided to protect your eyes from the bright light. The hand piece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. the feeling of the light being applied has frequently been described as a slight sting and sometimes even as having a small rubber band flicked at your skin
During treatment, the glass surface of the IPL hand piece is gently applied to the skin, normally by our trained nurse practitioner. Light is delivered to the skin surface in gradient movements.
IPL treats the damaged superficial layer of the skin while delivering thermal energy to deeper tissue. Clinical studies are now available to measure the effect this energy has on collagen production, which helps firm and tightens the skin.
Why are multiple Rosacea treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are treating, and severity of the individual problem, a series of four to six treatment sessions may be recommended every 3 weeks. You can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities.
By dividing the full program into several treatments the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk – and, it preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature that people really appreciate.
Does Rosacea get worse as I get older?
Whilst it varies from person to person, and people of all ages can be affected, and whilst it is not predictable, it does tend to gradually get worse as a person gets older, especially if untreated.
Without treatment, it can (and often does) progresses from 'early stages to middle stages' in a year, whilst in the early stages have been identified and treatment commenced, progression could have been prevented.
Which foods should I eat for Rosacea?
Again, there is no simple answer, this is because everyone is different, however, there is no doubt that diet is important. Additionally, some foods act as triggers.
Staff at Pulse Light Clinic have invested time and resources into research relating to diet and Rosacea. Lisa Borg (Dip BCNH) is a qualified Nutritional Therapist and a valued member of the 'Pulse Light Team'.
Because diet is so important, supplements are incorporated into treatment programmes. Vitamin and mineral supplements also help control flare-ups and have been shown as being effective in reducing symptoms; check out our page on 'Rosacea diet'. One of the main reasons why the Pulse Light Clinic gets such good results with treating Rosacea is because they use a combination of diet and IPL.
What are the early signs of Rosacea?
Early signs of Rosacea can be recognised through redness in the area, inflammation of the skin and burning or itching sensations to the area. If you notice these symptoms you can prevent your rosacea from developing any further by taking action.
Does drinking water help Rosacea?
Staying hydrated and having the recommended intake of 2 litres of water everyday can not only help with rosacea but it can help with many other health concerns.
Does alcohol make Rosacea worse?
It can if you have a yeast intolerance, that’s why food intolerance testing is important to know what causes you facial flushing.
What happens if Rosacea is left untreated?
People with early signs of rosacea who only have redness to start with if left untreated this can develop to itching, burning and uneven skin texture. If advanced rosacea is left untreated blood vessels can expand causing parts of the face to become disfigured. Swelling of the nose is very common.
