Effective Rosacea Treatments to Keep You Radiant and Confident
An even-toned complexion is something that most people strive to achieve. But for people with rosacea, that accomplishment can come to a screeching halt. Various triggers may exacerbate the condition causing more significant redness and swelling in the face, a symptom that can be difficult to hide.
While the primary causes of rosacea aren’t 100 percent known, some treatments available at Amani MedSpa in Valrico, FL, are effective. These treatments reduce redness and swelling, restoring confidence and a more even skin tone.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition affecting up to 20 percent of the U.S. population – mostly women with light skin over the age of 30.
The condition manifests itself in various extremes, from rash-like redness in the face to visible vessels and even pus-filled bumps on the forehead, cheeks, nose, or chin. Sometimes, rosacea can even be mistaken for acne, though the conditions are far from similar.
Rosacea can affect anyone of any age. And while its causes are unknown, the Mayo Clinic points to hereditary and environmental factors as possible culprits.
The potential for “flare-ups” is also a feature of rosacea. Such episodes are known to be caused by such things as:
- Spicy foods
- Hot or alcoholic drinks
- Extremes in temperature and sunlight
- Stress from exercise and emotions
- Some cosmetic products
While there is no cure for rosacea, some treatments have been shown to relieve some of the symptoms, making the condition less noticeable.
What Can Amani Do for My Rosacea?
It’s believed that without any treatments, the symptoms of rosacea may get worse over time. So we at Amani MedSpa work with our clients to implement lifestyle changes combined with treatment options that work to temper these symptoms.
This includes protecting one’s face from the sun, keeping the face moisturized and clean, and avoiding certain products, cleaners, and creams that trigger flare-ups.
Regarding treatments, both Laser Skin Resurfacing and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) have been shown to effectively reduce rosacea symptoms.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
At Amani MedSpa, we use an Aerolase non-ablative laser to treat several skin conditions, from wrinkles, acne, brown spots, and scars to rosacea. The heat generated by this laser promotes the production of collagen, which helps tighten and restore the skin. Non-ablative laser treatments are safe for any skin type.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
IPL is a treatment that can transform red, blotchy, aging, and sun-damaged skin into a more radiant and youthful complexion. Like a laser, the IPL uses a broad spectrum of light to penetrate the skin, triggering the body’s natural response to remove and regenerate tissue. Along with rosacea, IPL effectively treats conditions like melasma, age spots, facial veins, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.
These treatments and others may require multiple initial and future maintenance appointments to successfully treat one’s rosacea.
