Do you struggle with rosacea? You are not alone! According to the National Rosacea Society, it is estimated that 16 million Americans suffer from the signs and symptoms of rosacea. Characterized by blotchy skin, small red bumps, and broken capillaries, rosacea can be both aesthetically displeasing as well as physically uncomfortable. Fortunately, NW Face & Body has a number of ways to help treat and relieve your rosacea.
VBeam is a great choice for treating the redness associated with rosacea. This specialized pulsed dye laser treatment heals your skin by specifically targeting broken capillaries and blood vessels. Along with minimizing the appearance of unwanted hyperpigmentation, VBeam can help improve rosacea-related skin tone and texture problems.
Breakouts that accompany rosacea can be greatly improved with FotoFacial. Taking advantage of highly tuned light waves, FotoFacial focuses its light energy into the individual blood cells that cause rosacea. Like VBeam, FotoFacial is a non-invasive treatment that safely and consistently helps men and women with their rosacea. Both treatments are relatively quick and involve little to no downtime after the treatment is complete.
While botulinum toxins such as Botox® and Dysport® are best known for their ability to reduce wrinkles, there is now evidence that injecting small amounts of neuromodulators can also be an effective measure to curb and reduce symptoms associated with rosacea. The toxins are able to interfere with the blood vessels’ ability to dilate, and slows the surge of blood flow to the skin when they are carefully injected into the more superficial layers of the skin. This advanced injection method allows Botox and Dysport to decrease rosacea-related flushing, redness, and inflammation.
