Do you live with facial redness that doesn’t go away? What about itchy eyes or splotches of acne? These irritating symptoms may be a sign of rosacea. Many people have never heard of rosacea, and may even live with this potentially serious disorder without even knowing what it is. The month of April has been designated as Rosacea Awareness Month to educate the public on this skin disorder. Rosacea is a life-disruptive condition affecting more than 16 million Americans.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea usually presents itself around age 30 and may simply look like a sunburn or a mysterious blush. If you have any of the following symptoms, it may be time to seek proper treatment:
Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead
Small visible blood vessels on the face
Bumps or pimples on the face
Watery or irritated eyes
The flush of red usually comes on suddenly, without warning. Just as you start to feel concerned, the redness typically disappears. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stay gone. It happens again and again, becoming more severe and longer-lasting each time. Without treatment, bumps and pimples often develop, becoming more widespread over time, and burning, itching and stinging are common.
How can Rosacea Be Treated?
Treatment of rosacea can be frustrating. The market is flooded with a superficially endless supply of products and procedures promising lasting results. Yet, many of these methods prove to be nothing more than useless and expensive.
Medications and topical agents can end up costing thousands of dollars, providing only temporary results. Some people turn to methods such as chemical peels, injections, and lasers for treatment. These procedures can be extremely painful and invasive and they cause unnecessary stress on the skin. Many of these options consist of hours in a doctor’s office, and weeks or months of recovery time.
But don’t get discouraged. There is a safe way to help rid your skin of rosacea symptoms.
The Magical Vascular Intense Pulsed Light
While the cure is still unknown, there are many professional treatments and skin care products specially designed to control the onset of Rosacea. The NEW Vascular Intense Pulsed Light is one proven method available near St. Louis Missouri at Aliques.
