ROSACEA- TO TREAT WITH THOUGHT
What are Rosacea ﬂare factors ?
Hot liquids and hot foods -- not necessarily the spiciness of the food but the temperature of the food -- can be ﬂare factors. Sometimes spicy foods are a ﬂare factor. Flare factors aren't consistent with everyone. Individuals have to get to know themselves and know what their own ﬂare factors are, and then they can avoid them. If they decide that they want a nice glass of vintage red wine
and they don't care if their face is going to ﬂare up, at least they know what is going to happen and they accept it. Once you recognize your ﬂare factors, you can modify them so that they have some control over ﬂare-ups.
What are the types of rosacea?
There are actually different subtypes.
Rosacea can be just a central facial redness -- erythematotelangiectatic rosacea -- that may wax and wane and can be associated with symptoms such as itching, burning, and stinging.
People with rosacea will often have dry, ﬂaky skin.
Other patients have papulopustular rosacea; in addition to redness they will develop papules and pustules that tend to ﬂuctuate over time.
It's important to differentiate those 2 subtypes because they often respond differently to treatment.
There is also the phymatous type, in which the individual develops a bulbous nose like W.C. Fields. That is more typical in men than in women. People with rosacea fear the phymatous type, but the majority of people do not develop phymatous rosacea, which is good.
How do we treat the Rosacea?
Patients need to understand that we've come a long way in the area of Rosacea treatment( at least 5 treatments)- BUT THE RESULT IS VISIBLE AFTER THE 1st. We can help patients get their rosacea under better control.
With treatments we
-destroy broken capilliaries( instead of them new healthy capillaries will grow)
-stop inﬂamation process( pustules and papules cases)
-return the skin even colour
-hydrate the skin signiﬁcantly in a deep level
In MEDVSPA clinics we use comprehensive approach to treat Rosacea.
-very speciﬁc and gentle MICRODERMABRAZION and very soft LYMPHADRAINAGE massage (stimulation of epidermal-superﬁcial cells to grow). New cells have higher immunity level and is better hydrated 70% comparing with 10%)
-IPL Photofacial ( destroy broken capillaries, stop inﬂammation process, make the skin tone even)
-needle free MESOTHERAPY( without additional damaging of capillaries, we deliver deep into the skin substances that help new capillaries to grow, make the wall of capillaries thicker, build up a new collagen and HYDRATE the skin on a very deep level.
But any particular case is different.
