Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory skin disorder that manifests primarily on the face. It may be partially genetic as it is more prevalent among fair-skinned people. Rosacea is sometimes misdiagnosed as eczema, allergies, or acne, so the disorder could be affecting a larger portion of the population than has been confirmed.

The causes behind this condition are not fully understood and unfortunately, there’s currently no permanent cure. It is clear however, that the condition will worsen if left untreated. And since it is so visible, rosacea can cause severe psychological distress. Patients can also be affected by social stigmas that can include being perceived as alcoholics or as having poor hygiene.

Vilka är symptomen?

Rosacea usually occurs on the face and cheeks. You’ll usually experience redness, flushing, and itchiness. Many people with a history of frequent blushing or flushing have rosacea. Facial redness can either come and go or be more persistent, and it is often one of the earliest signs of the disorder.Rosacea is a non-contagious, treatable condition often characterized by inflammation and reddening of the face that is most commonly seen on the skin. Rosacea can be categorized into four different types: Erythematotelangiectatic (ETR), Papulopustular, Phymatous, and Ocular. Each subtype contains its own group of symptoms that allows it to be distinguished from the rest.

The Four Types of Rosacea

Rosacea exists on a spectrum, with specific symptoms varying depending on the subtype. That’s why classifying Rosacea into 4 different categories allows for a better understanding and treatment of the condition.

Type 1 is the most common type of Rosacea and is categorized by erythema (skin redness), flushing, and telangiectasia (spider veins). All of these symptoms are caused by an increase in blood flow to the facial region.

  • Erythema is simply the term for any reddening of the skin and can be triggered by factors such as sunlight, alcohol, and stress.
  • Facial flushing consists of skin redness, but what distinguishes flushing from erythema is the feeling of warmth in addition to the visible reddening of the skin. Flushing is short-lived in nature, as it has a rapid on and offset. Both of these symptoms are caused by an increased blood flow to the face.
  • Telangiectasia, another common symptom of ETR also known as ‘spider veins’, is a condition where small blood vessels are visible on the skin.
  • Type 1 rosacea is most often accompanied by a burning or stinging sensation as well.

Although these symptoms are usually harmless, they may affect self-esteem. Thankfully, type 1 rosacea is treatable with topical medications such as creams, gels, and lotions.Treatmenst include Celluma light therapy, IPL laser, Chemical peels and prp.

Type 2 Rosacea is distinguished by papules (red bumps), pustules (pus-filled spots), and reddening of the skin.
  • Papules are red bumps on the skin that are not filled with any fluid.
  • Pustules are bumps filled with pus. These bumps can resemble acne, but they are not considered acne because the condition is not caused by the production of excess oil on the skin.
  • Type 2 rosacea can also be accompanied by burning and stinging.
  Type 2 rosacea is treatable with topical and oral medications. Although topical medication is usually used as a treatment, low doses of oral medication are sometimes taken simultaneously to increase the effectiveness of the topical treatment. IPL laser, Mandelic chemical peel and LED light therapy can also help improve the condition.
Type 3 Rosacea symptoms involve the thickening of the skin on the face. Gnathophyma, Rhinophyma, and Metophyma are the terms that describe the thickening of the skin on different parts of the face.
  • Gnathophyma describes thickening of the chin.
  • Metophyma describes the thickening of the forehead.
  • Rhinophyma describes thickening of the nose.
  • Thickening of the skin can also be seen in other areas, such as the skin on the cheeks and/or ears.
  Thickening of the skin on the nose (Rhinophyma) is the most commonly seen symptom of Type 3 rosacea. Some treatments include the use of lasers, which are used to remove excess tissue. Oral medications, such as isotretinoin, can be used on their own or combined with other treatments.
Unlike all of the other types of rosacea, which affect the skin, ocular rosacea affects the eyes.
  • People with ocular rosacea may complain that their eyes feel dry or that their eyes are constantly watering.
  • The appearance of a person’s eye may be red and visibly irritated.
  • Some people may feel their vision is blurry.
  • Ocular rosacea can also manifest on the eyelids as inflammation or cysts. Inflammation of the eyelids is called blepharitis, which is commonly seen on patients with dry eye symptoms.
  Ocular rosacea is usually treated with artificial tears, extra eyelid care, and some oral medications.

Celluma Express Facial

Our celluma light therapy can soothe the complexion and curb the itchiness and redness associated with red skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and perioral dermatitis. It is clinically proven to provide one of the fastest, safest ways to reverse the visible signs of aging, clear acne and blemishes; and even heal sensitive skin conditions such as Rosacea, Eczema and Psoriasis. The treatment is completely pain-free, is suitable for all skin types and does not require any downtime.

LED light therapy for rosacea is available with a range of options, including laser resurfacing, yellow, green, blue, or red varieties. Each type of light has a slightly different application, but overall they can be used to remove skin thickening, reduce redness, and ease discomfort. Let’s start with the most popular option: laser resurfacing.

The system combines red and blue light therapy to reduce inflammation. The light energy prompts the acceleration of healing responses to repair the skin and treat sensitive skin conditions.

PRP Plasma Facial

The Vampire or Dracula Facelift is a procedure which involves drawing a small amount of your own blood to obtain platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which is then injected back into the face to boost collagen and plump up the skin. In the case of the Vampire facial, made famous by Kim Kardashian, micro-needles are used instead of injections. The micro-needles, make a multitude of small punctures allowing the PRP to penetrate the skin barrier. PRP therapy was developed in the 1970s to help with wound healing after surgery and went onto be used for sports injuries, burns and dentistry. Most commonly used on the face it can also be given on the backs of the hands, on scars, the décolletage and even the knees to rejuvenate the skin.

PRP is obtained by drawing about two teaspoonfuls of blood from the arm which is put into a centrifuge for 10 minutes to separate the platelets out.

Makeup is removed and antiseptic is applied, followed by an anaesthetic cream, which is left on the skin for 30 minutes.

The platelets are reintroduced to the face during micro needling or single injections during a procedure which normally takes between 30-40 minutes.

Most people have up to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for the best effect and you are advised to eat and drink lots of fluid before the appointment to help the practitioner withdraw the blood more easily.

Platelets are best known for their ability to clot blood but they also contain growth factors which stimulate collagen production. When re-injected into the skin it is thought these growth factors trigger surrounding cells to multiply boosting facial volume and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is also believed the treatment diminishes the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.

Platelets stimulate the fibroblast cells which produce collagen – the protein linked to elasticity, suppleness and firmness in skin – and they also activate the pre-adipocyte cell which can convert to a fat cell helping to fill out lines and provide volume to the face.It can take at least a few weeks for the to work and maximum results may not be seen for three months but effects are said to last for up to 18 months.

As the PRP is a natural substance extracted from your own body there is no danger of any adverse events such as an allergic reaction.

You may experience some minor pain for a short period afterwards, along with bruising, swelling and redness but these side effects all dissipate within a few days.

Chemical skin peels

Our Mesoestetic Mandelic skin peels are suitable for helping to control rosacea and other skin redness conditions. The active ingredients within the superficial peel can suppress redness and inflammation, as well as de-sensitise the skin to enhance resilience. The antibacterial properties within the mandelic acid can eliminate the bacteria and minimise the oily build-up of pus-filled pimples that rosacea sufferers may get. The practitioner can layer or combine peels to make them appropriate for your needs.

Behandlingen börjar med en konsultation där din läkare kommer att bedöma din hud för att dechiffrera dina hudtillstånd och det bästa behandlingsförloppet.

Under din behandling kommer din läkare att dubbelrengöra och förbereda huden genom att applicera en barriärkräm runt känsliga områden och ta bort all talg för att underlätta penetration av syrorna.

Efter detta kommer vi att applicera det valda skalet och låta det sitta i några minuter innan vi neutraliserar eller tar bort skalet. En neutralisator kommer att förhindra att syran verkar på huden, medan en borttagningsservett lämnar syran aktiv på huden för att fortsätta att förbättra hyn efter behandlingen.

Chemical skin peels are suitable for anyone who is looking for overall skin rejuvenation and an improvement in skin tone and texture.

Behandlingens längd beror på dina anpassade behov. Vissa peelingar kan sitta kvar längre, beroende på dina behov och tolerans mot behandling. Vanligtvis tar det cirka 30 minuter.

Kemisk hudpeeling varierar i styrka och substans och är antingen ytlig, medium eller djup beroende på dina hudproblem och hudtyp.

Syrorna och andra aktiva föreningar reagerar med huden och löser upp de yttersta lagren av huden för att avslöja en fräschare, klarare och ljusare hy. Kemisk hudpeeling främjar också kollagen- och elastintillväxt som kommer att uppmuntra tillväxten av friskare hud.

IPL Rejuventation

Intense pulsed light therapy targets vascular areas to address redness, alleviate inflammation and improve overall skin tone. The improvements in skin tone and redness are seen throughout several treatments. They do not cause surface-level damage to the skin, unlike other more aggressive laser resurfacing treatments.

Your consultation will determine your suitability for treatment.

The nurse will apply a numbing cream to minimise discomfort during treatment. We will configure the depth depending on the area and concern, and the device will make a few passes over your skin, delivering bursts of energy.

After the clear & brilliant treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling. The practitioner will apply a topical serum to minimise these marks.

This treatment is only suitable for skin types 1-6.

You can expect to start seeing results within 1-3 treatments.

Etherea vascular lesion treatment

Depending on the condition, we’ll utilise our Etherea system to address vascular lesions. Those with rosacea are also often prone to spider veins, and IPL can deliver laser that works by targeting broken or enlarged blood vessels that cause redness within the skin.

3-6, spaced 6 weeks apart.

Depending on the type and severity of the vascular lesion, different methods will be adopted. More prominent veins may be treated with a long-pulsed laser and infrared to trigger photothermolysis – a process which heats the targeted area without damaging the surrounding tissue.

The alternative process uses an advanced evolution of the intense pulsed light technology. Uniform energy is used to treat the vascular lesion.

Possible bruising and blistering.

Depending on the size of the vascular area, the treatment can take from 10-60 minutes.
