Rosacea Awareness Month Highlights Today’s Treatments

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015


By Jennifer Derry, Clinical Esthetician

April is Rosacea Awareness Month. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition with symptoms ranging from minor skin redness to full facial flushing. It also can involve red acne flare-ups or cause skin deformities on the chin, nose, and eye areas. The National Rosacea Society estimates that rosacea impacts sixteen million people in the United States alone.

Unfortunately there is no cure for rosacea, but more options to treat the skin condition are now available. Depending on the severity of rosacea, your esthetician or dermatologist can chose the right treatment to help reduce your symptoms.

Light chemical peels can help mild cases of rosacea, by reducing redness and small areas of acne. If rosacea redness is accompanied by broken capillaries and facial veins, then an Intense Pulse Light Laser (IPL) or a Pulsed Dye Laser can help. Topical and oral medications can be used to reduce inflammation and make living with the condition easier.
