What Causes Rosacea?

In all honesty we don’t really know the exact cause of rosacea. Some think rosacea happens when we have blood vessels that react too easily, this causes a red flushing of the skin. We do know that people who blush a lot may be more likely to get rosacea. There is also reason to believe that you may be more at risk if you have family members with rosacea or you are of English decent.

Why people develop rosacea we do not entirely know but we do know that certain things exacerbate it causing flare ups:

Exercise, sunlight, wind, cold temperatures, hot temperatures, spicy foods, alcohol, menopause, stress and use of steroids on the face.

What does rosacea look like?

Rosacea is quite a distinct condition with continual redness of the face. Most redness is at the center of the face (butterfly area). There is often a burning sensation and the skin reacts to things very easily. You may also notice small dilated capillaries under the skin known as telangiecstasia. The affected area of the skin may be somewhat warm, red and may sting. You may also notice that your skin becomes thicker with enlarged pores.

Treatment for Rosacea

At Inaar we provide care for sufferers of rosacea with excellent results. IPL is an effective treatment for the redness and telangiestacia associated with rosacea. Omnilux LED red light helps to reduce the inflammation and steady the skin's immune responses which appear to be elevated in rosacea.

Inaar skin and Body have developed treatment protocols that utilise a variety of techniques and modalities to reduce the visible signs of dilated capillaries or prolonged redness.

It is important to be using the right skincare regime at home and to recognise the triggers that may encourage flare up's. The Inaar team provide education and solutions for rosacea based on treatment, skincare and diet.
