Reduce the signs and symptoms of flushing on the face and neck
Rosacea is a chronic disorder primarily of the facial skin, often characterised by flare-ups and remissions. Doctors classify rosacea into four types depending on the symptoms:
- Papulopustular Rosacea – Commonly mistaken for acne, this type of rosacea is characterized by pustules containing pus, papules (resembling red bumps), and some level of permanent redness.
- Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea – Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is characterized by quick flushing of the skin. Other common symptoms include presence of small blood vessels on or near the skin surface, permanent redness, and a burning sensation.
- Ocular Rosacea – Ocular rosacea usually affects the eyes, as the name suggests. It is seen in almost 50% of rosacea cases, and is characterized by dry eyes, redness in the eyes, as well as irritation in the eyes and the eyelids. Another common symptom is an itching sensation in the eyes and the eyelids.
- Phymatous Rosacea – Phymatous rosacea occurs on the nose, chin, forehead, cheeks and ears. It is characterized by red bumps on the skin surface, thickening of the skin in the affected areas, and sometimes, the presence of blood vessels near the ski surface in the affected areas.
An initial course of 3-6 treatments fortnightly is recommended. These treatments will reduce overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries and improve breakouts.
