Rosacea is a common condition that causes redness of the face.
It is caused by a combination of inflammation and overgrowth of blood vessels. It may present as generalised redness, larger capilliaries or papules or pustules that can resemble acne. We can help this condition considerably by the use of appropriate prescribed medication. Laser and IPL have also proved to be very useful in closing off blood vessels to take away dilated capillaries or a flushed appearance.
Many patients with rosacea have problems finding suitable skincare. We can make recommendations specifically tailored to the patients' needs.
