Rosacea

1.Your rosy red cheeks could soon be under control with our new rosacea treatment, leaving you with a more even toned complexion and a new found confidence.

2. Although it is one of the most common skin disorders, Rosacea remains undiagnosed in millions of people around the globe. In fact, most people remain completely unaware of this potentially life-disruptive condition. Although it can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems, Rosacea goes largely unrecognised, and more importantly, untreated. Rosacea can cause a red-faced look and its effects are often mistaken for acne. Severe symptoms of Rosacea can result in self-confidence and self-esteem issues, with those afflicted cancelling both social and professional engagements due to sudden flare-ups.

3. Rosacea can be treated but first it has to be diagnosed by a dermatologist. Be warned, Rosacea is not something that can be ignored or which will go away by itself. The symptoms will only become increasingly more severe. So it is vital you take action now. The symptoms to watch out for include redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Small visible blood vessels, bumps on face or pimples and watery, irritated eyes.

Laser Treatment For Rosacea

  • Although it cannot be cured, Rosacea can be controlled. As the symptoms vary depending on the patient, treatment is specific to each individual. There are a range of oral and topical medications which are capable of treating the redness, pimples, and bumps associated with this disorder. Such treatments are usually prescribed to gain immediate control over the condition, and subsequent long-term use of topical therapy is advised to maintain remission.
         
  • When necessary, lasers and other medical and surgical devices may be used to reduce extensive redness, correct nose disfigurement and eradicate visible blood vessels. A gentle skin-care routine can be invaluable in helping to control Rosacea. In general, non-irritating skin-care products are advisable and protection from sun exposure by using a strong sunscreen also helps. With time and experience you will be able to identify and avoid all the lifestyle and environmental factors that aggravate this treatable condition and prevent the triggering of sudden flare-ups.

Rosacea Treatment FAQs


How does rosacea treatment work?

Depending on how severe your rosacea is, there are a number of approaches that can be used to treat the reddening skin condition. Antibiotics, creams and lotions are the first port of call. Sunscreen can also be helpful, as it protects the skin from the irritation caused by ultraviolet light. If these fail, a glycolic acid facial wash can help to remove the dead skin cells that aggravate this condition. We also apply laser therapy to treat the red veins that go along with rosacea.

How will I feel during rosacea treatment?

Some slight discomfort may be felt during laser treatment, but this is well tolerated by the majority of patients.

Is rosacea treatment the right treatment for me?

With the range of rosacea treatments available at DKS Clinique', your specialist will be able to advise you on which approach holds the most promise for you. If you have a tan, then you will need to allow this to fade before laser treatment, as the procedure will not be effective otherwise.

What happens after rosacea treatment?

Sometimes, laser treatment can leave you with slight bruising and swelling, but this soon settles. In the very rare instance that pain or infection occurs, simple measures such as paracetamol, Aloe Vera gel and antibacterial cream solve the problem.
