Today marks the end of #RosaceaAwarenessMonth, but our dedication and passion for supporting your skin continues.  If you’ve been diligent with your skincare and having our Rosacea Facials regularly, but still notice lingering damage, don’t fret.  We have a number of advanced aesthetic treatments tailored to address deeper capillary damage, enlarged pores and textural irregularities. 
 
We always hold off on exploring aesthetic treatments until the skin is functioning optimally and resilient. This can take a minimum of two skin cycles, or 12 weeks. This ensures the skin has optimal cell function, cell turnover and a strong barrier, which allows for superior results and a safer, more predictable treatment with minimal downtime. Think of it like fixing a car: we’ve got to get the engine working before we can put those shiny new wheels on.
 
We have a number of different treatments to choose from that are particularly great for treating rosacea.  We’ll help you choose which treatment, or combination of treatments, is right for you. 

Below is a brief explanation:
 
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): targets damaged cells with infrared light, boosting collagen and elastin production. It tackles hyperpigmentation, redness, and visible capillaries plus enhances skin texture.

Nano fractional ablation: utilises focused radio frequency waves to gently ablate microscopic skin columns, stimulating fibroblasts to increase collagen production and repair damaged tissue. This treatment is excellent for improving skin texture and also coagulates blood vessels to reduce redness and vascularity.
 
Bibella: Our powerhouse treatment combines IPL, Venus Viva Nano Fractional RF, and Venus RF in one session, delivering the benefits of both treatments in a single, supercharged session!

Enerpeel Mandelic Acid Skin Peel: My favourite peel! Mandelic acid targets sluggish blood vessels, causing them to contract, enhancing vascular integrity, evening skin tone, stimulating collagen for smoother texture, with minimal downtime.

Rosacea triggers are external stimuli that can cause sudden flare-ups of redness, irritation, and breakouts. Everyone’s rosacea triggers are different, so it’s essential to listen to your skin and track your flare-ups to identify the culprits that make your skin unhappy.

Avoiding your specific triggers is crucial for managing rosacea and minimising the severity and frequency of flare-ups, and most importantly, the progression of the condition
to more advanced stages.

Rosacea flare-ups can be physically uncomfortable and emotionally distressing, but with patience, understanding and a bit of trial and error, managing rosacea can become achievable.

Get out your pen and paper as these are the most common rosacea triggers:

* The environment – cold wind, high temperatures, harsh sunlight, changing environments (going from hot to cold), and having central heating too high.

* Diet – common triggers include caffeine and hot drinks, alcohol, spicy foods, cinnamaldehyde containing foods such as tomatoes, citrus fruits and chocolate, and high histamine foods. 

* Some medical conditions and medications.

* Emotional influences, such as stress and embarrassment 

* Exercise – all the heat generated when we work out can exacerbate rosacea as the blood vessels dilate to cool the body. Sebum is also stimulated, which can exacerbate inflammation. Work out in front of a fan or opt for swimming to keep the skin temperate.

The use of certain products – harsh exfoliators, irritating soaps, certain makeup, essential oils, and heavily plant-based products.

Overall, steering clear of triggers as much as possible is essential for stabilising rosacea, reducing discomfort, and preventing its progression.
Rosacea is a common, yet misunderstood, condition. There are no gold standard lab tests available, so diagnosis relies on expert opinion. 

In the UK Rosacea is generally characterised by four sub-types, which include the following: 
Erythematotelangiectatic– flushing, redness and capillaries
Papulopustular – pustular or dome like acne lesions 
Ocular– redness and irritation of the eyes
Rhinophyma & Tissue distortion – thickening of the skin and enlarged pores, particularly the nose 

This system was not always practical as people often experienced symptoms across multiple subtypes, and jumped between them, so a new system based on observable characteristics was created by a group of 28 worldwide experts. 

With this system, people are diagnosed if they have at least one ‘diagnostic’ symptom or at least two ‘major’ symptoms. They are also likely to experience ‘secondary signs and symptoms’, although not used for diagnosis. 

‘Diagnostic’ Signs
Persistent Redness: Facial redness that doesn't go, resembling  sunburn
Skin Thickening:  especially on the nose (rhinophyma), with enlarged pores

‘Major’ Signs
Flushing: Frequent blushing, often with warmth/burning
Spots: Red bumps or pinprick pus-filled spots, not like acne
Visible Blood Vessels: Prominent capillaries (telangiectasia) Eye Irritation: Watery, bloodshot eyes, red, swollen eyelids with visible blood vessels

‘Secondary’ Signs and Symptoms
Burning or stinging skin
Swelling or raised red patches (plaques)
Dry skin despite having oily skin

The symptoms can also affect areas like the neck, chest, scalp, or ears in rare cases.

If after reading this you suspect rosacea could be the culprit then we’d love to help. If medical treatment is needed we'll refer to a great dermatologist.
