Here at Pure Perfection Clinic, we offer various methods of rosacea treatment. Rosacea is a common skin condition that mainly affects the face, causing redness and visible blood vessels. It can also have a psychological impact, with many people feeling self-conscious of their appearance and embarrassed to go out without make-up. As a chronic condition, there’s no cure for rosacea. Sometimes it can look better, but at other times it can appear more severe. Thankfully, rosacea can be managed with various procedures. We offer a range of the best rosacea treatments that are clinically proven to help. When you come for a consultation with us, we will carefully assess the type and presentation of your rosacea. We’ll then put together a personalised treatment plan to successfully manage it on a long-term basis. Causes of rosacea While the exact cause of rosacea is not fully understood, it’s believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Suggested explanations include abnormalities in the blood vessels and a reaction to microscopic mites commonly found on the face. There are triggers that you can avoid which make rosacea flare up. These include sun exposure, hot or cold weather, spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks, stress and certain skincare products. Types of rosacea Rosacea can present in a few different ways. The most common types are: Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: facial redness, visible blood vessels and a tendency to blush easily Papulopustular rosacea: redness, swelling, acne-like breakouts in the middle of the face (often known as ‘acne rosacea’) Phymatous rosacea: thickening skin, bulbous appearance typically on the nose (known as ‘rhinophyma’) Ocular rosacea: eye-related symptoms such as dryness, burning, itching and redness – can occur independently or alongside skin symptoms Treatments for rosacea There are various treatments for rosacea for your face, which will not only make your skin look better but hopefully make you feel more confident too. Here’s a brief overview of the best rosacea treatments that we offer and how they can help: Skincare At Pure Perfection Clinic, we offer ZO Skin Health prescriptions. This skincare range has many years of scientific research behind it and products designed specifically to relieve the symptoms of rosacea such as red and sensitive skin. Clinic founder and lead nurse prescriber Sara Cheeney is a ZO Skin Health faculty member and trainer, so you can trust she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to selecting the right products for you! Chemical peels By exfoliating the top layer of skin to reveal fresh, healthy new skin cells, light chemical peels can be a great way to calm the redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. A series of treatments is usually recommended for the best results. Botox While Botox is most commonly used to smooth wrinkles, it can also help treat rosacea. It works by stopping the dilation of blood vessels, which reduces the redness and flushing that so many patients experience. Botox is not permanent, so the effect wears off after a few months. The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on your individual concerns and how well your rosacea responds. As with all our treatments, a consultation is needed before booking a Botox treatment. Energy-based rosacea treatments We have a wide selection of energy-based devices that use heat and light energy to efficiently break down blood vessels so you can no longer see them or their associated redness. This includes advanced electrolysis, the excel V laser, the Lumecca IPL that uses intense pulsed light, Secret RF, Fractora and Morpheus8, which are all radiofrequency microneedling devices, the light-based Dermalux LED device and the Secret PRO CO2 laser. Each works in a unique way and is suited to different types and grades of rosacea. The device we recommend will depend on your individual needs.
