Rosacea Treatment in Manchester Leeds London Liverpool and Bury
Rosacea is a skin condition resulting in severe redness and spots on the face caused by the dilation of tiny blood vessels below the skin’s surface. Rosacea begins as outbreaks of flushing and redness on the face, but can also affect the neck, chest, scalp and ears. These blood vessels may become hyper-sensitive to certain triggers.
VPL treatment can help control the symptoms of Rosacea, reducing redness and inflammation. The light energy is absorbed by the inflamed blood vessels, and the associated heating helps break these down. The body then recognises these broken vessels as waste and removes them naturally.
Rosacea is a common inflammatory condition of the face that causes redness which looks like a flush. The condition often progresses from intermittent to persistent facial redness with pimples without blackheads and telangiectasia (red lines where the tiny blood vessels of the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead become quite prominent). It occurs in both men and women and although it may occur at any age, onset usually begins after the age of 30.
People with Rosacea often find that certain lifestyle and environmental factors trigger a flare-up or aggravate their individual conditions. Common triggers include certain foods (especially hot or spicy foods) and drink, (especially alcohol and caffeine), exercise, temperature changes, exposure to the sun, rain or wind, and stress.
Treatment varies according to the type of Rosacea.
The permanent redness associated with chronic Rosacea can be successfully treated with the VPL system we have at Cristianos. Medications cannot reverse the cosmetic disfigurement of ‘Rhinophyma’ and surgery is considered inappropriate. Persistent flushing can be treated with medication and antibiotics can be effective in reducing inflammation.
Treatment with the Ultra VPL targets the red thread veins which absorb the light energy. Secondly the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin this stimulates new collagen and collagen remodeling, this improves the support of the small blood vessels which helps to delay the development of more thread veins.
