What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition mainly affecting the face. It can be mistaken for acne or eczema, or some other skin allergy, because it can cause facial redness and produce small, red, pus-filled bumps (called pustules).
Typically, it can begin any time from age 30 onward, first noticeable as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go.
Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad, followed by periods when the symptoms are less severe.
It will worsen over time if left untreated.
Treatment for rosacea – micro-needling
The most effective treatment we offer for rosacea is Dermaroller micro-needling, a procedure based on the principals of acupuncture and mesotherapy.
The Dermaroller hand-held device creates microscopic ‘punctures’ in the epidermis and dermis, which encourages collagen induction using the skin’s natural healing response.
The procedure also significantly increases transdermal absorption, allowing vital nutrients to be more effectively absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin.
