Rosacea can be a very difficult skin condition. It is very noticeable, hard to disguise and tends to worsen with time if left untreated.
Characterised by redness and flushing rosacea is often mistaken for acne, eczema or an allergic reaction. Symptoms can include pimples and thread veins as well as a tendency to blushing and inflammation.
Self-Help for Rosacea
The first step to helping with rosacea is to try and work out what triggers it, then avoid it. Many sufferers find the sun makes their skin worse. Alcohol and spicy food are also common culprits. Stress is also a big factor.
Pursuing a good healthy diet and good lifestyle with steady exercise and stress-reducing habits is great advice for rosacea sufferers.
If this doesn’t make a big difference, then treatments such as antibiotic creams or oral antibiotics might be prescribed by the GP. If rosacea is a problem, then it is worth a visit to the doctor to explore the options.
Skin Treatments for Rosacea
There are now also some advanced skin treatments that can help to improve rosacea.
Cosmedics Beauty based in London has a few options that can help to relieve the symptoms and promote clearer, healthier skin.
Laser / IPL
Laser and intense pulsed light treatments can be used to reduce redness and acne pustules. The laser and light energy in these high tech systems helps to tackle enlarged veins and broken capillaries for skin that looks clearer and less flushed. It will promote skin cell renewal for healthier skin.
Cosmedics Beauty offer ClearSkin laser acne treatment with the Harmony XL Pro advanced laser system. This is suitable for all skin types and has no side effects.
Advanced facials can be used to help control symptoms. HydraFacial is the latest addition to Cosmedics Beauty and this system combines a series of treatments from detox and lymphatic drainage through exfoliation to hydration and LED light to further work on redness and also stimulate natural healing, recovery and new skin cells.
Just one HydraFacial can make a visible difference but a course of treatments is recommended for best results.

It can also promote healing and cell renewal/rejuvenation.
Which Rosacea Treatment?
