Redness & Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin condition characterized by redness, sensitivity, and breakouts, affecting approximately 1 in 10 people worldwide. It involves a persistent inflammatory process leading to an excess of capillary blood vessels in the skin’s upper layers. These delicate blood vessels are highly sensitive and tend to enlarge in response to various triggers, including sunlight, stress, exercise, alcohol, spicy foods, caffeine, and hot or cold weather. This can result in flushing and a burning or stinging sensation. Over time, chronic inflammation leads to the growth of larger vessels known as ‘telangiectasia,’ often visible around the nose, cheeks, and chin.
The management of redness and rosacea typically involves a combined approach: a topical skincare treatment program and laser therapy.
