A little known condition causing deep embarrassment and often limiting sufferers socially (sometimes regarded as blushing) is Rosacea. Although more common in men than women, symptoms can include swelling around the face, eyes and nose. It can be aggravated by UV exposure, heat, cold, intense physical exercise, alcohol and caffeine. For sufferers, the skin of the face feels sensitive, and if not appropriately managed can severely impact on quality of life, causing anxiety, embarrassment and low self-esteem.
However, Rosacea treatment can be successfully treated and controlled by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Laser. The intense pulsed light and vascular laser targets the surface blood vessels and thereby diminishing flushing and redness of the face associated with Rosacea.
