With Rosacea, the skin of the face and in particular the cheeks and nose tends to flush or go red easily and over time becomes permanently red. Thread veins may appear in the same sites and in pustular Rosacea (formerly known as Acne Rosacea) spots and pimples appear too. The condition is aggravated by over production of oil from sebaceous glands, hormonal changes, sun exposure, UVA & UVB, stress, climatic changes and some foods such as coffee, spicy foods and alcohol. Most clients are keen to improve the appearance by treating any pimple spots and reducing the redness and thread veins. Rosacea can be improved and controlled. This condition generally gets worse if it goes untreated, causing more redness, more pimples and more visible thread veins. Rosacea can be treated but may not be cured. Severe cases will require oral or topical antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.

Rosacea treatment includes two different applications of laser treatment on visible veins and a second applicator to reduce redness in combination with products to protect the skin i.e. broad-spectrum sunscreen and antioxidants. Recurrent flushing and blushing is present and late in the disease, the nose may be enlarged with thick red skin, a condition known as “rhinophyma”. Enlargement of the nose is more common in males. Also, along with thicker skin, the oil glands of the face enlarge and are more active giving an oily appearance. Rosacea is often accompanied by other features and symptoms such as breakouts, redness-erythema, red bulbous nose, acne like eruption and a heat like burning sensation.

Stages of Rosacea

Second Stage – Breakouts: The next stage breakouts may appear on the face. The types of breakouts are seen in people with Rosacea differ from acne, which are characterised by blackheads or whiteheads. In Rosacea the pimples appear as small red and solid or pus filled. A characteristic symptom of Rosacea is dilated blood vessels that become visible under the surface of the skin.
