Located in Delta, British Columbia, Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre is led by Dr. Marcia Fleming and registered nurse Jennifer Sutherland. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and begin your journey to clearer, healthier skin.
What Causes Rosacea and Redness?
Rosacea, a common skin condition, affects nearly 45 million women worldwide. Rosacea can have several symptoms, including:
- Redness or flushing of the face
- Skin that blushes easily
- Small, visible blood vessels
- A red nose
- Thickened skin
- Red, watery eyes
- Small bumps filled with pus
While the exact cause is unknown, evidence shows that each individual can have triggers that cause their Rosacea to flare up at different times. The presence of facial redness does not always mean that the individual has Rosacea. Facial redness tends to be less severe, and is most commonly caused by uneven skin tone due to sun damage. It can also be caused by dilated facial vessels such as spider veins.
Rosacea and redness can sometimes be mistaken for acne, allergic reactions, rashes and other skin conditions. A consultation with our medical team will ensure that your skin is properly evaluated before proceeding with treatment.
How are Rosacea and Redness Treated?
Just as no two skin types are alike, at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre we understand that not everyone responds to the same treatment. We offer multiple options depending on your individual condition, including:
- IPL Photorejuvenation is a light-based treatment that uses non-invasive pulses to reduce Rosacea and redness without making symptoms worse.
- Laser Vein Removal is a non-surgical solution to removing broken capillaries, especially on the nose. Laser energy has the ability to bypass the skin surface and heat the vessels underneath the skin without irritating or damaging surrounding skin or tissues.
Rosacea and redness are sensitive skin conditions that should be treated gently, as it can be easy to trigger a flare-up and exacerbate symptoms. Not all treatments are appropriate for treating these conditions, and at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre, our medical team is familiar with treatment methods that are both safe and effective for your Rosacea or redness-prone skin.
