Rosacea is a fairly common condition that I see in my aesthetics practice. It is a condition which causes redness and in some stages, small pustules on the face. The redness can occur when blood vessels under the skin become enlarged. Though it is a chronic condition, with no known cure, there are several ways it can be controlled with treatment. During a skin assessment I refer to the Kligman acne rosacea classification scale. The stages of rosacea can range from Stage I-Pre- Rosacea, Stage II-Mild Rosacea, Stage III-Moderate Rosacea, to Stage IV-Severe Rosacea. In office facial treatments include a combination enzyme/AHA, mild chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, preformed once a month. In addition to having regular professional skin treatments, I recommend that clients follow an at home regimen to help minimize flare ups. SkinMedica’s Sensitive Skin Cleanser is specially formulated to protect highly sensitive skin. Active ingredients include chamomile flower extract to neutralize irritants, cucumber to calm skin, and marigold which has soothing properties. Follow cleansing with Redness Relief Complex. Redness is reduced with Calmplex (4-Ethoxybenadehyde) and niacinamide to improve barrier function of the skin increasing moisture content by reducing trans epidermal water loss.
