Rosacea is a chronic and common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in the face. It can also produce small red, pus-filled bumps. No one knows what causes rosacea, but experts believe it may be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It’s estimated that about 10% of the Irish population are affected by rosacea and flare-ups can affect their quality of life.
Treatment helps. A Thérapie Clinic skin specialists will outline a range of treatments that you might consider, including individually prescribed products, facials and scientifically-proven chemical peels as well as IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Treatment.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) has been clinically proven to be successful in reducing the symptoms of rosacea. It uses multiple wavelengths of light to treat the dilated blood vessels in the face. IPL treats the persistent redness, the dilated blood vessels as well as the thickening of the nose and cheeks that can manifest as part of rosacea. Your skin specialist will provide advice on how many treatments are required.
