Understanding Rosacea and Treatments

Spread the love


Suffering with rosacea, or skin prone to redness and swelling, can be frustrating. One of the solutions to managing rosacea is to find out what specific factors are contributing to inflammation. An article by Melissa Schwarzchild, M.D. published in The Health Journal explains the triggers for rosacea and how to combat them. Heat is one of the most common triggers. Exposure to high temperatures outdoors will intensify your rosacea. Wearing hats and applying sunscreen daily is a good way to protect yourself.

Schwarzchild also notes the many sufferers of rosacea have sensitive skin. Using a mild cleanser and sticking to hypoallergenic facial creams and makeup also can aid in the prevention of further skin irritation. For a more permanent solution, Schwarzchild recommends rosacea patients turn to a cosmetic surgeon for laser treatments.

These gentle, quick procedures target broken capillaries and dilated blood vessels to will significantly reduce redness and create a more even skin tone. These types of treatments are available at Vinings Surgery Center, and specialists are on hand to answer any questions.

FotoFacial RF® treatment for Rosacea and More

FotoFacial RF® treatment applies a unique combination of controlled heat and light (Syneron® Aurora™ laser) to improve the appearance of age spots, freckles, and sun spots. This treatment can improve skin texture, reduce redness and rosacea symptoms, decrease the appearance of unwanted facial veins, and diminish the visibility of enlarged pores. FotoFacial RF® treatments must be performed in a cycle that corresponds with your body’s own rejuvenation processes with time in between treatments to allow your skin to heal itself.  Typically, FotoFacial RF® patients see the best skin rejuvenation results after a series of five treatments spaced one month apart.
