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

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!

Katrina was great - fitted me in very last minute and whilst completing the treatment (Dermaplaning) - told me what she was doing and also gave me advice on my skin type / how to look after it etc too - Very friendly and recommended products that don't break the bank too. Definitely recommend.

This lovely lady Katrina is nothing short of a genius. I contacted Katrina 7 months ago about my eyebrows, which putting it mildly were a disaster. Naturally very blonde and fair I had the unfortunate mishap of having my eyebrows tattooed elsewhere and they were super thick as black as night. I hated them and wanted them gone. I called and spoke to Katrina and from the get go she put my mind as ease. The ultimate professional, I chose to travel a few hours each way to see her for the next 7 months as I had every confidence this lady was and is trained to the highest standards, uses the best equipment, her salon is so clean you could eat your dinner off the floor there and she is so professional and warm I felt really at ease and totally reasonable in terms of prices. Voila...7 months later and practically pain free I have rid of those awful brows and now have my confidence back. I would recommend this lady to anyone. She’s incredible! So much so I will be going back for other treatments there. Thank you so much Katrina. Katie x
