Rosacea is a skin disorder that leads to redness and pimple like eruptions on the forehead, chin and cheekbones. It can also appear on the neck, scalp, ears and chest. The early signs of rosacea include flushing or blushing easily, which is embarrassingand uncomfortable for the patient. It usually affects people in between the age of 30-50, especially if they have suffered from excessive acne in the past. Fair skinned people, and women during their menopause also suffer from rosacea.
- The face tends to flush easily making it look like blushing. The redness of the face comes and goes, which is the earliest sign of rosacea.
- Bumps and Pimples that resemble acne with a burning sensation.
- Spider Veins become prominent.
- Eventually skin of the forehead, chin and cheek can become thick.
The only permanent treatment of Rosacea is Laser treatment, which helps you get rid of the prominent blood vessels. The proper use of laser energies do not only help in the cosmetic appearance, but they are also useful in reduction of the rosacea attacks. The oral medicines and the creams might give you some relief temporarily but are unable to get rid of it.
The laser treatment usually takes around 10 mins, and the patients experience minimal discomfort and a slight stinging sensation during the treatment. The after results of the treatment make the discomfort totally worth it. When you get the laser treatment done, it dries out the rosacea acne and removes it gradually. The heat from the lasers damages the vessels, which ultimately causes them to break apart and disappear. The redness might stay for about 24 hours after the treatment. If needed, 1 or 2 more sessions may be repeated at monthly intervals.
