A Rosacea Treatment at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay – Call 02 9909 3602 – will eradicate the signs of Rosacea to reveal clearer and more even-toned skin.
LAB Skin Clinic is Sydney’s leading specialist centre for the total removal and management of the outward signs of Rosacea. (Outward signs can be removed, but because Rosacea is genetic in origin, it is always an ongoing factor for management and correctly prescribed skincare).
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common chronic and progressive, micro-circulation, inflammatory skin disorder that results in persistent redness, dilated capillaries, congestion, and quite often papules and pustules.
If improperly addressed, Rosacea may eventually lead to permanent skin damage and disfiguration. Its origins are genetic – often appearing in early in children with a tendency to blush or flush easily.
Most commonly, Rosacea-prone sufferers are:
- Women between 30 and 50 years of age
- Fair-skinned, and often have blonde/red hair and blue/light brown eyes
- From Celtic or Scandinavian ancestry
- Likely to have a genetic family link
- Likely to have had acne, acne cysts and/or nodules
Left untreated, Rosacea will become worse. Ageing causes redness to spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin and sometimes the ears, chest and back can be affected. So, to ensure you intercept this problem early, make an appointment for a complimentary consultation by calling 02 9909 3602 or by clicking on the link below.
LAB Skin Clinic Treatment:
Our treatment objective is to eradicate the visible signs and help clients to control outbreaks and halt progressive deterioration. This is successfully achieved using gentle skincare products that are natural, non-chemical-based integrated with diet, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications, supplementation, and technology treatments.
A Rosacea treatment program incorporates a dedicated skin care regimen (Dermaviduals) in conjunction with correct ongoing clinical management. Correction programs comprise some or all of the following, depending upon Rosacea type:
- Oxygen & specialised Rosacea facials
- Immune boosting supplementation
- Dietary change to alkalizing foods
- Skin care products that soothe, desensitise and decongest, cool and calm and, in addition, ingredients to support healthy micro-capillary circulation and proper skin nutrition are all necessary to improve skin health and reduce the symptoms of Rosacea
There are four Rosacea sub-types with different characteristics, but all share a common tendency to be sensitive to very sensitive and reactive:
- Easily flushes
- Redness through centre of face
- Visible broken blood vessels (spider veins)
- Skin is frequently dry, rough or scaly
2. Papulopustular (Acne Rosacea): most common in middle-aged women
- Acne-like pustules, usually where the skin is red and swollen, which tends to come and go
- Visible broken blood vessels (spider veins)
- Raised patches of skin called plaques
3. Phymatous (Rhinophyma): the skin thickens and has a bumpy texture. This sub-type is rare.
- Skin thickens and has a bumpy texture, especially common on the nose
- Skin may thicken on the chin, forehead, cheeks, and ears
- Visible broken blood vessels appear
- Pores look large
- Oily skin
4. Ocular: affects the eye. If Rosacea affects your eye, you may need to see an ophthalmologist.
- Eyes red and irritated
- Eyelids can be swollen and person may have what looks like a sty
- Watery or bloodshot appearance
- Eyes feel gritty (like sand in the eyes)
- Eyes burn or sting and can be very dry and itchy
- Eyes sensitive to light
- Blurred vision causing impaired vision
- Visible broken blood vessels on eyelid
- Cyst on the eyelid
Left untreated, Rosacea will become worse. Ageing causes redness to spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin and sometimes the ears, chest, and back can be affected.
Doctors and dermatologists mostly rely on antibiotics to control certain populations of micro-organisms that can worsen the condition such as the parasite demodex folliculorum within skin follicles and or helicobacter pylori bacteria at the digestive level. This is, at best, a temporary solution, which does not resolve the condition.
Avoiding the Triggers That Make Rosacea Worse:
Despite having a genetic tendency towards Rosacea, there are steps you can take to mitigate the symptoms by avoiding the causative triggers:
- Alcoholic beverages like wine
- Extreme temperature changes
- Food allergies
- Low Vitamin C & Omega levels
- Spicy foods
- Sun exposure
- Very hot or cold beverages
