Rosacea is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory skin condition characterised by redness, flushing, dilated capillaries, sensitivity, dryness and swelling. In more severe cases papules, pustules, eye lesions and thickening of the nose can occur. These present on the skin due to reactive oxygen species causing a degenerative effect on collagen and elastin, persistent exposure to vasodilators such as coffee, alcohol and spicy foods and lastly, UV exposure damaging collagen and elastin and further effecting the skins barrier function providing the perfect environment for opportunistic pathogens to invade the skin. There are many different contributors to rosacea such as, immune, genetic, environmental and microbiological factors, which will be further discussed with your therapist during your skin consultation. All treatments are accompanied by a home prescription tailored to your skin.
