Rosacea is a skin condition that results in red, scaly skin that can be uncomfortable and unattractive. Women and those with fair skin are most commonly affected by rosacea, often occurring on the face. While there are many medical treatments to control rosacea, there are also med spa treatments to combat the red, dry and thickened skin. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer cosmetic rosacea treatment at our clinic in Miami.
There is no known cause of rosacea and no cure. Middle-aged women with fair skin are the most likely to have rosacea, but this condition can affect anyone. The symptoms of rosacea include:
- Red patches of skin from swollen blood vessels
- Bumpy, warm skin
- Thickened skin, especially on the rose (rhinophyma)
- Dry eyes and swollen eyelids
Genetics may play a factor in whether or not someone has rosacea. Certain foods, drinks and lifestyle exposures can trigger flareups, including sun, spicy foods, alcohol and weather. Medications and topical treatments through a dermatologist can help manage symptoms. For cosmetic treatment, we offer effective options at our med spa at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute.
Laser Treatments for Rosacea
The swollen blood vessels, red bumps and thickened skin caused by rosacea can be dissipated with light or laser therapy. Light energy treatments can target visible blood vessels that cause rosacea skin redness. Laser skin resurfacing can also be used to remove damaged or thickened skin in severe rosacea or rhinophyma. Laser treatments are minimally-invasive and effective for removing redness and thick skin, restoring a more even skin tone and texture to your face and nose.
