Rosacea is a common skin condition, often showing as redness from the nose to the cheeks. It is sometimes accompanied with stinging sensation, inflammatory lesions, and telangiectasias (flattened veins on the skin) on the face. This condition may also cause inflammation of the eyes and eyelids. Zinnia Aesthetics provides rosacea treatment options that may help.

Laser Therapy for Rosacea Treatment

To remove visible blood vessels or reduce extensive redness, vascular lasers emit wavelengths of light that target tiny blood vessels just under the skin. Heat from the laser’s energy builds in the vessels, causing them to disintegrate. Generally, treatment involves three sessions, depending on the severity of redness or visible blood vessels.
Vascular lasers may also be used to help retard the buildup of excess tissue. In severe cases a CO2 laser can remove unwanted tissue and reshape the nose. New laser technology minimizes bruising. As with any surgical technique, the safety and effectiveness of laser therapy may depend on the skill of the physician.

Skin Care After Treatment

The skin around your face is particularly sensitive to chemicals. Isopropyl alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus oil, clove oil and salicylic acid can irritate the skin. Therefore products containing these ingredients should be avoided.
Sun block with an SPF rating of 50 or higher helps protect sensitive skin from the sun.
Zinnia Aesthetics has several skin care and sun block creams designed for people with rosacea.
