Rosacea Dispelling the Myths

Dispelling the myths around Rosacea

So, if you have a red face you have Rosacea, Wrong! There are many skin conditions that can lead to a red face, Acne, Eczema, Lupus etc. Rosacea only affects the elderly, Wrong! There are two potential age peaks for rosacea, late teens to twenties and second in 40s and 50s so it can occur at any age. Rosacea only affects pale complexion people, Wrong! It can also occur in any ethnic person. However Rosacea is twice as common in women than men although Phymatous is more common in men.

The hallmark of Rosacea is the ‘flushing of the face’, which isn’t like a physiological blushing. Your face will normally flush for longer than 10 minutes and for some people it can last an entire day. You also may feel a severe burning sensation, which can lead to actual pain

So what could be a potential triggers for Rosacea?

Alcohol YES

Hot food (Temperature) YES

Sunlight YES

Wind YES

The pathogenesis of Rosacea is unclear but a number of reasons can possibly cause this condition

  1. Rosacea is associated with helicobacter pylori infections when treated with antibiotics their Rosacea will improve but relapses once the antibiotics are stopped
  2. Rosacea is caused by the demodex mite, even when removed there can be potentially no improvement for rosacea
  3. Rosacea is caused by the abnormality of your skins antimicrobial peptides
  4. Rosacea is caused by an abnormal vascular response in the skin associated with migraines

If you have Rosacea normally you will have very sensitive skin and your skin will not tolerate a vast amount of creams including cosmetics and moisturisers. Its important to try different products to understand what your skin will tolerate. You should always use a high factor sunblock if you suffer with Rosacea. It’s a really good idea to keep a diary of triggers and possible causes to help you understand your own skin and how to avoid these in the future as each person can be different.

Treatment of Rosacea

Most of the clinical studies concentrate on the inflammatory lesions of rosacea and ignore the facial flushing and redness, the only exception Synchrorose (Rosacure), so what is Synchrorose? This is a licensed product only available in Clinics. Regular use of these products can have a profound effect on rosacea symptoms and redness. You can also have a course of Mandelic Acid Peels which work into the skin and has a vasoconstrictive effect which helps dilated blood vessels function better making them less visible on your face, a course of 4 to 6 of the peels 2 wks apart will control your Rosacea and you continue to support this control with the use of topical creams

    5 star review  Amazing experience! First time having permanent makeup done (eyeliner + eyebrow). I was very nervous but Katrina puts me at ease! She is very professional and full of skin care and makeup knowledge. I can already see a huge difference after my first session. After my second top up session a month later, I am more than happy to go out of home without any makeup on. I now wake up everyday with perfect eyebrows and super natural liners, love it! Thank you so much Katrina!

    5 star review  Thank you Katrina so much. I cannot say how pleased I am with my eyebrows I love them and have had loads of compliments since having them done. It took me a while to build up the courage and Katrina was lovely. She is so professional and made me feel at ease after being so nervous. I would urge anyone looking to have any permanent make up done to go to Katrina as you won't regret it. I finally have eyebrows and love them.
