Are you suffering from rosacea? Here are some at home and professional skin treatments that can help give you clearer, smoother skin.

Overview

Rosacea is a common, long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. Often, these changes in physical appearance can have a significant psychological impact.

Some of the signs of rosacea include:

  • Sensitive skin that reacts easily to the sun or skin care products
  • Redness in the face, especially toward the center in the cheeks and nose
  • Visible broken blood vessels
  • Dry, rough, itchy or scaling skin
  • Acne like breakouts and overly oily skin
  • Large, visible and inflamed pores
  • Watery or bloodshot eyes
  • Stinging or burning in the skin

However, there are a multitude of at-home and professional skin treatments that can be used to safely and successfully manage rosacea.

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we offer the latest rosacea skin treatments, including V-Beam Laser, to give you the clear and beautiful skin you have always wanted.

At-Home Skin Treatments for Rosacea

There is currently no cure for rosacea, but treatment can help control the symptoms and keep your skin free of any redness and pimples.

For most patients, long term rosacea skin treatment involves a combination of self-help measures at medication such as:

Avoiding known triggers

Although they are not thought to be the direct cause of rosacea, several triggers have been identified that make the condition worse including:

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Stress
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Hot/cold weather
  • Hot drinks
  • Alcohol/Caffeine
  • Spicy food

Making an effort to avoid these triggers in your daily life can make a big difference in the condition of your skin and prevent any rosacea flare ups.

Wear sunscreen everyday

The sun is thought to be one of the most strongly aggravating factors of rosacea.

The most successful rosacea skin treatment regime includes the use of sunscreen, which offers significant benefits against flare-ups, keeping your skin well protected against UV rays.

Supplements & Essential Oils

Many supplements and essential oils can help fight the inflammation that is the root cause of rosacea.

These include:

  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Aloe vera gel (used topically on the skin)
  • Raw honey (used topically on the skin)
  • Essential oils such as lavender, chamomile and rose

These natural substances can help speed up blood circulation and promote wound healing while reducing the presence of bacteria that can aggravate the skin.

Medications

If you suffer from rosacea, you should talk to your doctor about medications as a skin treatment option.

There are creams, gels and even oral medications such as antibiotics that can help clear up more severe cases of rosacea and reduce spots and redness.

V-Beam Laser: Professional Skin Treatments for Rosacea

Today, there are many therapies available for treating and managing the symptoms of rosacea.

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we used the advanced V-Beam Laser to help clear your skin and give you a beautiful, rejuvenated appearance.

What is V-Beam Laser Skin Treatment?

V-Beam is a pulse dye laser used to minimize overall facial redness associated with rosacea. Using an innovative laser technology, V-Beam combines longer pulse durations with cryogen cooling for rosacea skin treatments that are safer, less painful and more effective.

How does V-Beam Laser work?

The innovative V-Beam Laser works by delivering a short burst of light into the treatment area. This causes any damaged blood vessels to coagulate and be reabsorbed by the body during the healing process, leading to clearer skin.

Is V-Beam Laser painful?

When performed by a qualified skin specialist, V-Beam laser is a safe and relatively pain-free rosacea skin treatment, suitable for all skin types and ages.

The advanced technology uses a cooling spray before each laser pulse, protecting your skin and minimizing any discomfort during the treatment.

How long do the results last?

This is highly dependent on each individual. Typically, the results from this rosacea skin treatment can last between 6-24 months. Annual follow up treatments may be required to maintain optimum results.

How many V-Beam Laser treatments will I need?

While you will notice significant results after a single treatment, most patients require 3-5 sessions (4 weeks apart) to enjoy the full benefits of this skin treatment.
