Rosacea

& How It Works

Rosacea

& How It Works

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin disease. It often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people.

The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin. Even the ears, chest, and back can be red all the time.

Rosacea can cause more than redness. There are so many signs and symptoms that rosacea has four subtypes:

  1. Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: Redness, flushing, visible blood vessels
  2. Papulopustular rosacea: Redness, swelling, and acne-like breakouts
  3. Phymatous rosacea: Skin thickens and has a bumpy texture
  4. Ocular rosacea: Eyes red and irritated, eyelids can be swollen

With time, people who have rosacea often see permanent redness in the center of their face.

Causes of Rosacea

The cause of rosacea is unknown, but it could be due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene.

Factors can trigger or aggravate rosacea by increasing blood flow to the surface of your skin. Some of these factors include:

  • Hot drinks and spicy foods
  • Alcohol
  • Temperature extremes
  • Sunlight or wind
  • Emotions
  • Exercise
  • Cosmetics
  • Drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications

Risk factors

Anyone can develop rosacea. But you may be more likely to develop it if you:

  • Are a woman
  • Have fair skin, particularly if it has been damaged by the sun
  • Are over age 30
  • Smoke
  • Have a family history of rosacea

Treatment

Treatment for rosacea focuses on controlling signs and symptoms. Most often this requires a combination of skin care and prescription treatments.

The duration of your treatment depends on the type and severity of your symptoms. Recurrence is common.

Medications

Treatment may involve a combination of prescribed topical medications (applied to the skin) and oral drugs (swallowing pills, tablets, or capsules). These include:

  • Topical medications: These help reduce inflammation and redness and are applied to the skin either once or twice a day. They are commonly used in combination with some oral medications.
  • Oral antibiotics: These may be prescribed for their anti-inflammatory properties. Oral antibiotics tend to give faster results than topical ones.
  • Isotretinoin (Accutane): This oral medication is sometimes used for severe cases of inflammatory rosacea if other treatments have not worked. Isotretinoin is a powerful drug that inhibits the production of oil by the sebaceous glands. As side effects may be severe, the patient needs to be monitored closely.
  • Blephamide: A specific type of steroid eye drop which is sometimes prescribed for patients with ocular rosacea (eye symptoms).
  • Tetracyclines: These are sometimes prescribed for patients with symptoms of ocular rosacea.
  • Intense Pulse Light treatment

For patients with visible blood vessels (telangiectasia) laser treatment, which uses intense pulsed light, can be used to shrink them.

With AFT, every pulse has a uniform energy density. The peaks and valleys that can cause pain and adverse events are eliminated.

The spot sizes, rapid pulse times and other proprietary advances such as SPEED™ and IN-Motion™ can help providers shorten treatment times without sacrificing results.

The innovation creates a more efficient system for clinical improvements, helping providers achieve superior results on a predictable and repeatable basis.

The required number of sessions will depend on how severe the rosacea is and so will vary between patients.

Laser Re-surfacing Treatment

To remove thickening skin, dermatologists recommends laser resurfacing.

Laser treatment can also reduce redness. In a few small studies, lasers were used to treat permanent redness on the face or the redness surrounding acne-like blemishes. Some patients saw a considerable reduction in redness.
