These include abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face and a reaction to microscopic mites commonly found on the face. Rosacea or Acne rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition, as a result, it can present as spots on the face associated with redness and flushing.
Episodes of flushing are usually one of the first symptoms associated with rosacea. This means the skin turns red for a short period of time, but as the condition progresses, other symptoms can develop over time.
As this is a relapsing condition, it means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad and other times they can be a lot less severe.

Our patients all have an individualised rosacea treatment plan suited to their condition and any subtypes of their rosacea/ acne rosacea may include.
Our expert dermatologists will always put together a personalised plan in order to produce maximum results for their patients.
Which rosacea treatment a patient will have will depend on the severity and subtype of their condition, they could also have a combination of treatments.
Laser treatment is a great option for patients that have visible blood vessels. Laser treatments are effective at shrinking these veins without harming the surrounding skin.
The best laser for rosacea is the pulsed dye laser. Pulsed dye laser treatment emits a beam of light aimed at the visible red blood vessels in the skin to shrink them and make them less visible, furthermore, there is emerging evidence that pulsed dye laser is also effective in reducing the severity of flushing.
A skin-care routine personalised to your condition can be invaluable in helping to control rosacea.
Non-irritating skin-care products are advised with this condition and when creating your treatment plan, we can offer advise and recommend products that will help manage your condition.
A high sunblock is also advised as direct sunlight can often be a trigger and make rosacea symptoms worsen.

Used to treat boxcar scars. The base of the scar is surgically removed, leaving the sides of the scar in place. The base is then reattached to the side, but lifted up so it’s level with the surface of the skin. This makes the scar much less noticeable.
