You may have a vascular condition called: rosacea (ro-ZAY-sha). Because rosacea can get worse with time, it’s important to get the facts and the right treatment.
Often look red, as if you have a sunburn
Have red bumps (pimples) or blemishes on your cheeks, forehead, nose, or chin
See small red blood vessels
Look ‘flushed’ after taking a hot bath/shower, exercising, eating spicy foods, or drinking alcohol or hot beverages
Your eyes look irritated or bloodshot even when you’re well rested
The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, though we do know that flare-ups can be provoked by a wide range of environmental, physical, and emotional factors. Rosacea triggers vary from person to person, but often include spending time in the sun, eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol, and stress. Learning to identify your triggers can help keep your rosacea symptoms in check.
With visible symptoms that can be hard to self-diagnose, it is easy to see why rosacea leaves many feeling self-conscious and isolated. In fact, many people feel that the condition affects their self-esteem to the point where they avoid public situations or even cancel plans.
To ease some of the symptoms of rosacea, there are a few things that you can do. One of the services we offer at Ageless Med Spa is a 60 Minute ROSACEA GLO FACIAL: A blend of jojoba oil, safflower oil and rose hip oil, soothes and moisturizes as it cleanses, followed by a conditioning toner to balance and hydrate with antioxidants. A repairing and strengthening serum, Ultra Vitamin C 15% is applied followed by B5 hydration to help nourish and hydrate. A restorative mask improves elasticity, deeply hydrates, soothes and restores skin’s strength. Call us today for more information.
We stress one action above all: visit your dermatologist. That’s because rosacea can get worse if left untreated. Only a doctor can diagnose this condition and get you on the path to clearer skin.
