Rosacea is a common skin complaint and is prevalent between those aged 30-60. It tends to affect more women than men and can be a rather embarrassing skin condition.

What is Rosacea?
Despite being common, we still don’t know everything about the condition Rocacea. It can cause redness and flushing of the skin, some of the finer veins can appear and in some cases the skin can thicken around the affected area such as the nose. It can also cause an increase in spots.
What are the causes of Rosacea?
The actual cause of Rosacea is unknown, but research by the National Rosacea Society has identified the most common reasons why Rosacea may flare up – these include, direct sunlight, cold weather, alcohol, stress, hot drinks and eating spicy foods.
How to treat Rosacea.
Firstly, it is suggested to avoid all of those elements which can trigger the pink flushing, but sometimes this is easier said than done.
Luckily there are a range of treatments available which use the advanced technical power of lasers.
We’re talking about small medical grade lasers which are concentrated on the area and basically encourage the veins and blood vessels which cause Rosacea to heal, thus reducing the signs of redness.
Some may think only the rich and famous could afford this treatment, but believe it or not, it is affordable and can reduce Rosacea, giving a brighter, less rosy appearance.
The only downside of having this treatment is that if required, you will have to go out and purchase some blusher or bronzer.
