Rosacea is a thing — Here’s How to Treat It Before It Becomes Pigmentation
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by redness and small visible blood vessels on the face. While the exact cause of rosacea isn’t known, it’s thought to be caused by an increase in blood flow to the skin, resulting in redness and swelling. Rosacea can affect different people in different ways, but most people with rosacea experience these symptoms on their face or neck.
Rosacea affects millions of people around the world, yet few are aware of how to treat it effectively. It can cause severe redness on your face, acne-like breakouts, and inflammation. If left untreated, it can worsen, causing spider veins and even pigmentation.
Luckily, there are several ways to treat rosacea before it becomes pigmentation. They can help reverse the appearance of blemishes and improve your overall complexion. Here are three methods that we use at Vita Nova to treat rosacea.
Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) is a treatment that uses powerful pulses of light. It addresses the melanin below the skin’s surface that causes the pigmentation. Due to its
non-invasive, non-ablative nature, there is very little downtime and you may experience a redness post-procedure.
At Vita Nova, we recommend our package of four treatments for best results.
The IPL device we use contains a cooling system that provides comfort throughout your treatment while each light pulse targets the area getting treated. IPL helps to treat hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, and even acne!
Sculptra works to activate collagen production in your skin. And did you know that collagen is filled with glycine, an amino acid that helps boost your skin’s hydration? Collagen can also help repair hyperpigmented skin, improve your skin’s texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
At Vita Nova, our patients receive a series of three treatments, which include two vials of Sculptra per treatment. Along with the above-mentioned benefits, it restores facial volume and provides support to the skin.
Fire & Ice Facial
This facial has an amazing nickname, “The Red Carpet Facial!” It’s another treatment that leaves you with little to no downtime. We begin with the fire – a resurfacing masque that heats up your skin. Then comes the ice – a rejuvenating masque that cools you down.
This quick and safe treatment helps to refine your skin’s texture, reduce blemishes, and improve those fine lines and wrinkles.
