All About Rosacea: Signs, Symptoms and Superhero Treatments

Blog, Rosacea Nutritional Advice, Skin Treatments

Rosacea is a sneaky skin condition that often starts making its presence known after hitting the big 30, though it can be a party crasher earlier in life, too. It usually kicks off with a bit of redness on your cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead. Over time, that redness invites some friends to join in, resulting in darker, more stubborn shades of red. But here’s the problem: rosacea comes in different forms, each with its own symptoms.

Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea: This is about persistent facial redness and visible blood vessels.

Papulopustular Rosacea: This type brings bumps and pimples to the party. It’s like acne’s distant cousin, but with its ‘fun’ quirks.

Phymatous Rosacea: This variant thickens and enlarges your skin, often picking on your nose and making it swollen and bumpy – which is not what you signed up for.

Ocular Rosacea: This one’s the troublemaker who messes with your eyes, causing irritation, redness, and a constant feeling like there’s sand in them. In the worst cases, it can even blur your vision.

Here’s the good news: even though rosacea doesn’t have a magic cure, we’ve got some pretty neat tricks up our sleeves to help manage it. At Pulse Light Clinic, we’ve been tackling rosacea for over two decades and have become London’s go-to spot for getting your skin back on track!

At Pulse Light Clinic, we’ve mastered the art of tackling rosacea with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and BBL (Broadband Light) therapies. IPL works like a superhero light, targeting blood vessels’ haemoglobin beneath your skin. This process damages the vessel walls, prompting your body to clear away the damaged tissue and replace it with healthier cells, leaving your skin clearer and brighter.

But the dynamic duo doesn’t stop there. BBL technology partners with IPL to specifically combat the redness that comes with rosacea, resulting in a tag team effort to give your skin its best look.

Food Intolerance Testing: Uncovering the Underlying Causes

We also go the extra mile, offering guidance from Lisa Borg, our Nutritional Therapy expert with 16 years of experience, who takes a holistic approach. See, rosacea isn’t just skin-deep; lifestyle factors like stress, diet, and environmental triggers often influence it. You can keep those rosacea flare-ups at bay by making some smart lifestyle changes and getting personalised nutritional advice. We don’t just stop at surface solutions; we dig deeper with food intolerance testing. Lisa starts with extensive health questionnaires and sometimes adds short ones to understand your unique situation. Functional tests, including food intolerance testing, might be recommended for some clients.

Lisa specialises in skin and digestive health, which are often the keys to resolving many health issues. Digestive disturbances can be early indicators of more significant problems. Lisa’s goal is to empower you to take control of your health before diseases take hold.

Lisa’s expertise covers various concerns. She crafts a personalised dietary and lifestyle plan and may recommend supplements to support your progress. She aims to minimise the need for follow-up appointments, making your path to better health straightforward.

How Food Intolerance Testing Works

Getting tested for food intolerances is easy. Just call us, provide some basic information, and we’ll send you a testing kit with clear instructions for home blood sampling. Lisa will confirm receipt of your samples and discuss her findings once she has your results. She will also guide you on eliminating problematic foods. We’re not just about quick fixes but about helping you find long-term solutions!
