There’s no definitive answer on what causes rosacea, but it’s an affliction that affects millions of Americans. As with many skin conditions, the problem with rosaceas is mostly one of confidence. Those who have it feel less attractive and less ready to take on the world. It presents itself as redness of the skin, which is caused by blood vessels rushing to the surface. While there is no known cure for rosacea, Bridgeport Laser & Wellness can help you manage the condition and live a normal, confidence filled life. Here are three treatments offered at the clinic that can help you look and feel your best.
Treatments for Rosacea:
Exfoliating your skin while you have rosacea is not recommended. It can cause further irritation to the skin, and possibly infection. Instead, talk to Bridgeport Laser & Wellness about your chemical peel options. A gentle chemical peel will reduce inflammation and irritation, and mute the red on the skin. The peel removes the top layer of skin to make room for fresh, healthier skin. Do not try a chemical peel at home to treat rosacea. A licensed professional must examine your condition and recommend a peel that won’t irritate your condition and just make it worse.
IPL Photofacial Treatment
IPL photofacial treatment can provide help at removing some of the underlying factors that cause rosacea. It works by targeting the compromised blood cells in your bloodstream and eliminating them. It is non-invasive and easy to tolerate. This makes it one of the easier solutions for dealing with rosacea, although it can take longer than others.
Medical Grade Skincare
Sometimes, rosacea can get so bad that it will need extraordinary measures to fix it. Medical grade skincare solutions involve specially formulated medicines that attack rosacea to not just reduce symptoms, but also to make it less likely that the condition will return. Your doctor will recommend the best approach for your specific condition, but it could be an oral medication, a serum, or a topical solution that will help your skin fight off rosacea and get back to looking its best.
There’s no need to accept that you have to live with rosacea. At Bridgeport Laser & Wellness, we are dedicated to providing you with the best cosmetic skincare to help you look and feel your best in your own skin. Everyone’s skin is different, and as such, every solution has to match the patient. We will make sure that you get the right treatment for your skin.
