What is rosacea?
Rosacea mainly affects the face in a range of symptoms and to varying degrees. The main symptoms are flushing or blushing, facial redness and visible blood vessels and acne-like spots. Several non-invasive treatments offered at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic, such as medical-grade skin care and chemical peels, can improve skin troubled by rosacea for a healthier-looking complexion.
Rosacea affects both men and women due to genetics or hormonal changes, with flushing often triggered by heat, exercise of hot drinks. Rosacea can cause embarrassment and distress, especially if the blood vessels in the skin become permanently visible (known as telangiectasia) or there is persistent facial redness (erythema).
Medical skincare products available at the clinic include Dr. Obagi’s ZO® range and the Tebiskin® range. These are therapeutic treatment protocols available only by prescription, and skincare regimes for healthier skin, based on the latest advances in skin therapy technology for a more effective clinical approach. They treat a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions, such as rosacea.
Enerpeel® medical chemical peels are gentle on the skin and can stimulate skin re-modelling to treat rosacea symptoms of reddening, as well as boost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production for repaired and rejuvenated skin.
