Reduce redness and inflammation with our highly effective Rosacea treatments

Acne Rosacea is an inflammatory condition, which appears as intense redness typically in the centre of the face. The skin can feel very sore and uncomfortable and in severe cases may develop papules (small, inflamed pink or red bumps on the skin) or pustules (inflamed, pus-filled dome-shaped lesions on the skin), which look like common acne. However, no blackheads or whiteheads will be present. Rosacea can be treated using the following methods:
  1. Laser Treatment – For patients with visible blood vessels, laser treatment can be used to shrink them. The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy that target only the blood vessel, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. 

  2. Skin Peels – Skin peels help rosacea by exfoliating the top layers of skin, speeding up skin turnover and preventing pores from becoming clogged with dead skin cells, which can aggravate rosacea. They can also help to reduce inflammation and promote skin healing. Our peels vary in strength and your doctor can recommend which one is best for you.
