Best Treatments for Rosacea
If you suffer from “flushing” and persistent redness you are not alone. A skin condition called rosacea affects more than 16 million Americans, according to the National Rosacea Association. Perhaps you have seen a doctor and been diagnosed with rosacea – or perhaps you are one of the thousands of rosacea suffers who don’t understand the cause of your ongoing battle with frustrating “skin redness”.
The good news is that AMAE Med Spa offers several state-of-the-art treatments and products that can minimize or eliminate the redness of rosacea, as well smooth and resurface thickened rough skin that often accompanies rosacea.
While rosacea is a common and persistent skin condition, its causes are still not widely understood. It is a type of inflammation that in its early stages may simply include flushing and persistent redness. As the condition progresses in more severe cases, pustules, and thickened rough skin can also develop that can undermine one’s self-esteem and confidence.
It is believed that hormones, heredity and hyperactive oil glands all contribute to the development of rosacea. And clinical studies have shown that stress contributes to rosacea outbreaks. Other “triggers” can also stimulate rosacea including extreme cold or heat, sun exposure, alcohol and even spicy food.
“Flare-ups” tend to come and go in a cyclic manner – and can last or disappear for weeks or even months.
Rosacea Skin Care Products
While there is no known “cure” for rosacea, state-of-the-art IPL and fractional laser treatments available at AMAE Med Spa in the Detroit area can be very effective at treating the redness and skin damage of rosacea.
For milder to moderate cases of rosacea, a daily skin care regimen that reduces the skin’s inflammatory response to excess oil (“sebum”) and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier function can help prevent rosacea flare-ups.
For this we recommend the ZO Skin Health rosacea protocol. This regimen can be customized for your unique skin care needs, but may include: ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish, ZO Oil Control Pads, ZOSkin Health Ossential® Daily Power Defense, and the generous use of a non-irritating sunscreen such as ZO Oclipse® Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30.
Rosacea Chemical & Laser Treatments
For moderate to severe cases of rosacea, with redness, irritation, and weakened, oily skin stronger intervention may be needed. We have helped hundreds of individuals in the Detroit are with therapeutic treatments for rosacea, including retinal chemical peels.
Nordlys Ellipse IPL laser rosacea treatment actually removes the face’s superficial vessels that are the cause of the facial redness. Specific frequencies of pulsed light target and destroy the blood vessels. A full facial IPL laser treatment for Rosacea takes only 20 minutes, with no recovery or down time.
