Rosacea is a skin condition that causes flushing and visible redness to the face. While it’s not certain what causes it and there’s no complete cure, it can be treated and well managed with rosacea treatment.

Rosacea is a long term or chronic skin condition that affects a large amount of both women and men. It is often seen in caucasian skin, but can affect all skin types.
Research is ongoing as to why some people develop Rosacea and others do not. However, we do know that in a person who has this skin condition, there are a number of common symptoms and triggers that lead to a flare-up.
There are four different types of Rosacea and the symptoms will vary depending on the specific type a person has. It is also possible to have more than one type of Rosacea at the same time. The treatment recommended will depend on the type of Rosacea that you have.

Usual symptoms of Rosacea include flushing and redness. However, depending on the severity, symptoms can also include the appearance of small broken blood vessels, broken capillaries on nose, acne like pustules, permanent redness or a burning sensation in the skin.
Rosacea typically appears on the face around the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. One type of Rosacea also affects the skin around the eyes.
Well known triggers that will lead to a flare-up of Rosacea include stress, certain foods and drinks such as spicy foods, dairy products, certain medication such as vitamin B supplements, alcohol and caffeine. Environmental factors like variations in temperature can also be a trigger for Rosacea symptoms.
These are some of the common external triggers but there are many others. For anyone diagnosed with this skin condition it is important to avoid or manage the external events and factors that lead to Rosacea flare-ups.
While there is no complete cure for Rosacea, there are effective treatments and with the use of topical treatments and oral medication, it can be improved. The symptoms of Rosacea can also usually be kept under control.
Laser treatment for Rosacea as well as other light-based treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is considered to be one of the best treatments for Rosacea UK.
The objective of Rosacea treatment at Dr Hause Dermatology is always to rebuild and protect the compromised structure of the skin. Let’s look more closely at some of the types of Rosacea treatments that we offer to patients who are affected by this medical condition.
Lasers used in dermatology deliver a controlled wavelength of light, to heat up target structures, but do not damage the surrounding tissue. The heat and light from the laser will activate a healing process that will eventually lead to the growth of new collagen in the skin.
For treating Rosacea we use non-ablative lasers which will not cause any damage to the surface of the skin.
Non-ablative lasers work by creating heat in the skin without injuring the surface. They are unable to penetrate as deeply as ablative lasers, but are still an effective treatment for Rosacea and broken or burst blood vessels.
Skin peels can sometimes be an option for Rosacea treatment as they promote cellular renewal, reduce symptoms of Rosacea and get rid of skin redness.
The dermatologist or nurse applies a liquid peeling agent to the skin’s surface.
The peeling agent in chemical peels is a solution that causes the skin to exfoliate and then peel off, which is what leads to skin renewal. The peeling activity results in the renewal of your skin cells and a process that is known as re-epithelisation, or regeneration of the treated area.
At our Dermatology Clinic on London’s Harley Street we offer a full range of chemical peel treatments, which all differ in their strength, peeling activity and downtime.
We are also specialists in light therapy and laser treatments which will encourage the growth of new collagen in the skin, rejuvenating the skin and reducing the symptoms of Rosacea.

There are four main types of Rosacea. The most common type of Rosacea is categorized by skin redness, flushing, spider veins. All of these symptoms are caused by an increase in blood flow to the facial region.
Rosacea sufferers can experience these symptoms: flushing, facial redness and visible blood vessels. Sensitive skin, rough and dry skin, raised red patches and facial swelling are other Rosacea symptoms. In addition to these skin concerns, Rosacea cases can cause loss of confidence and self-esteem, as may occur with any skin issues affecting the face or body.
