Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects mainly the face and can also affect the eyes. It is most common in middle-aged women with fair skin. If you are sick and tired of dealing with the symptoms associated with rosacea, it may be time to consider laser skin rejuvenation.
What are the Symptoms?
The earliest symptom usually seen is frequent flushing or blushing that is often associated with a burning sensation, especially if the patient applies cosmetics or creams to their face. In some cases, the face may swell slightly.
As the condition progresses, the patient’s skin becomes persistently red. The patient develops a symptom called telangiectasia in which small blood vessels become dilated and show through the skin as small, red lines. The skin may also feel warm and appear swollen. The patient may also develop red bumps called papules and their eyes may become irritated and inflamed. Men with rosacea sometimes develop a condition called rhinophyma, in which their nose becomes red, enlarged and bulbous.
How is Rosacea Treated?
There is so far no cure for rosacea, but it can be controlled with the proper treatment. It is important to note that the condition is not going to go away on its own. In fact, the symptoms tend to get worse as the patient gets older, for the aging process does affect the skin. The best a patient can do is learn how to control their rosacea and avoid the things that make it worse.
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that can address a variety of unwanted conditions, from rosacea and melasma to signs of aging and acne. During this treatment, laser energy is used to encourage the formation of healthy, attractive skin. The carefully controlled heat created by the laser energy helps to rejuvenate the skin in a natural way.
A series of treatment sessions is usually required to achieve the desired results. But since no extensive recovery is involved, the treatments are convenient and will not disrupt much of your life.
