What causes rosacea?
People can experience different triggers to rosacea however some of the common causes are:
- becoming overheated.
- having cold wind blowing on your face.
- eating spicy foods.
- hormonal based medications.
- prolonged use of topical steroid creams.
- excessive alcohol, smoking and sun exposure can also contribute to exacerbations.
These can result in the main symptom being the development of facial spider veins and generalised skin redness, with occasional pustule components.
There are topical creams you can buy to treat moderate rosacea. However, reports show most patients who have tried laser say, while it is not a cure it does help reduce the visible blood vessels and redness.
Usually after 3 treatments clients can see a 40-60% improvement. Depending how active the rosacea is, a single session of maintenance laser is required approximately every 6 months.
After laser treatment, clients can use creams and serums that help to soothe and eliminate redness. Pustular components are treated separately and triggers are attempted to be identified.
It is recommended for post care after rosacea laser treatment to stay out of the sun, use a sunscreen whenever outside and avoid the triggers (foods, heat, stress, etc) which may cause it to flare up. Some triggers of rosacea are still being identified.
