Rosacea impacts the lives of more than 10 million Americans. Most of those suffering are fair-skinned women between the ages of 30 and 60. The swelling and redness caused by rosacea can be embarrassing, and it's difficult to find treatments that actually work. This chronic condition requires both medication and skin treatments to successfully care for flare-ups.
Our trained clinicians at Facial Aesthetics can help you find which treatment options work best for you. We treat all variations of skin conditions, and offer several alternative remedies including laser treatments, microdermabrasian and facials.
Rosacea Medications & Treatments
If you have rosacea, you will most likely respond to basic antibiotic medication in ointment, lotion, gel or pill form. Antibiotic pills only work as a short-term treatment.
If you don't respond well to the antibiotics, then acne medications are another option. You should notice a difference within two months.
Laser therapy is an advanced treatment that targets areas affected by rosacea. We offer laser treatments such as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to lessen blood vessel and tissue buildup around your nose. Our aggressive facials can also relieve symptoms of rosacea.
Rosacea gets worse over time. You need a good treatment plan to keep yours under control. Our aestheticians can help you decipher which options are right for you and your skin.
Daily Home Care
Home skin care is vital to treating rosacea. Facial Aesthetics offers medical skin care products such as Rose Cleanser. It's important to take care of your skin at all times. Here are a few tips to prevent a rosacea outbreak:
- Wear sunscreen.
- Protect your face with scarves or ski masks in the winter.
- Don't irritate your skin by touching or rubbing at your face.
- Wash rosacea-prone areas gently.
- Avoid skin care products made with alcohol or other irritating chemicals.
