WHAT IS ROSACEA?
Rosacea is an uncomfortable condition affecting millions around the world. Those of us who suffer from this issue are often embarrassed and ashamed of our skin. In addition, this affliction is often accompanied by persistent burning and itching. At Wow Medi Spa, we are happy to help those living with rosacea. Our range of skin rejuvenation treatments promises clearer, more radiant skin.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS?
Though classified as a common dermatological concern, the cause of rosacea is unknown. The condition often begins around the nose and tends to spread to the ears, chest, and back over time. Some types cause breakouts while others can lead to thick, bumpy skin. Other symptoms include dilated blood vessels and puffy skin. This uncomfortable condition can lead to insecurity, particularly in social situations, and we can have that, now can we?
TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR ROSACEA
Certain chemical peels can treat rosacea. Peels involve the application of mild acids directly to the skin. Commonly used acids such as Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) are safe for skin and act as exfoliating agents causing the skin to “blister” and eventually peel off. Often, this ameliorates our patients’ facial redness. When you come into Wow, we’ll discuss the best treatment for your condition.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM LASER TREATMENT?
Treatment sessions are fast-acting. Session time varies based on condition severity, but most cases require 3-5 sessions at 3-6 week intervals for best results. Some minor swelling may occur after each session, but will often dissipate after a few hours. Ice packs can be used to relieve burning if needed.
