We offer rosacea treatments based on consultations with you to find the best option. If rosacea is not treated, you can develop solid red bumps and pus-filled pimples. The disorder can also cause the nose to take on a bulbous, swollen appearance which is called rhinophyma. It can also affect the eyes, causing them to feel irritated and to appear bloodshot or watery.
The majority of individuals who suffer from rosacea have fair skin tones, with complexions that are prone to blushing. Although the causes of this relapsing condition are still unknown, there are consistent signs to look out for.
SYMPTOMS OF ROSACEA
The most common symptom of rosacea is redness. Flushing is most likely to affect the face, particularly the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. In severe cases, reddening will spread outwards from the nose to each cheek, presenting as what is known as the ‘butterfly pattern’. It can also cause the eyelids to become sore and crusty. Rosacea flushing is usually accompanied by a flare-up of condition-specific spots: small, sore pimples which appear on the affected areas.
CAUSES OF ROSACEA
This common skin concern causes consistent redness and pimples to form on the skin, which is inherently tenacious in nature and impossibly difficult to soothe with home remedies. Generally, it exclusively affects the facial area, not spreading beyond the jawline. Often likened to a severe, prolonged breakout of adult acne, it is a lesser known yet particularly problematic condition in its own right.
Flare-ups of rosacea are hard to conceal, and makeup can worsen the condition to create a vicious and seemingly inescapable skincare cycle.
The personalised rosacea treatments we offer at Aesthetics Lab are created to not only give you a treatment plan in the clinic but at home as well.
Although the causes of rosacea are unknown, some associate it with the following:
PREVENTION OF ROSACEA
While we provide rosacea treatments in London at our clinic, which can ease symptoms and restore your skin health, you should also try to avoid:
When you have sensitive and/or reactive skin, it’s especially important to use products and treatment methods that will address the underlying problems without causing a flare up. This is why an initial consultation with skin analysis is an integral part of our treatments at Aesthetics Lab.
You will have the opportunity to discuss your skincare concerns in-depth and go through your medical history with one of our experienced Aestheticians. This will help us to identify the most suitable products for your rosacea-prone skin.
We’ll explain each stage of your treatment in detail so you know what the facial entails. Feel free to ask questions – we’ll answer openly and honestly.
Relax as we gently cleanse your skin and conduct a thorough skin analysis to determine the most suitable decongesting peel. We will then apply a Mandelic or Lactic Acid Peel, ideal for sensitive and/or reactive skin, depending on which is most suitable for you. After several minutes, the peel will be removed.
As well as exfoliating dead skin cells, the peel will penetrate the deeper layers of your skin to strengthen and reinforce the underlying structure, while healing and soothing the epidermis.
With your skin feeling fresher and healthier, we’ll give you a light detoxifying and draining facial massage. This is deeply relaxing and uses special techniques to maximise the effectiveness of the products used during this facial.
Finally, we use LED light therapy because it is proven to have an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory healing effect on the skin, which should reduce any signs of redness.
At the end of the treatment, we will apply soothing serums and sun protection to your skin. You’re then free to carry on with your day with healthy, glowing skin.
Some people experience some mild redness immediately post-treatment but each element of the Rosacea Facial has anti-inflammatory properties, so you should find the redness passes within an hour.
Your skin will look healthier immediately but you should notice ongoing improvements, especially a reduction in any redness and inflammation.
