It’s estimated that 16 million Americans have rosacea, a skin condition that causes red blotches to appear on the face. Rosacea symptoms most commonly appear as bright red blotches centered around the nose and cheeks. It can also appear as unsightly, visible blood vessels on the face known as spider veins. This flushed skin sometimes feel warm or uncomfortable. Eventually, the flushed skin can spread to the forehead, chin, and even the scalp, chest, and neck. As the chronic condition progresses, rosacea can spread and develop into pimple-like breakouts, bumpy skin, a swollen, bulbous nose, and swollen, irritated eyes.
That bright red flush is caused by abnormalities in the facial blood vessels that cause them to easily dilate. To this day, the exact root causes for rosacea are not entirely known. Everything from our body’s microbes, our immune system, and our genetics have been seen to play a factor in causing rosacea. For some people, a rosacea flare-up can be impossible to predict or difficult to avoid: various triggers for rosacea flare-ups include exercise, temperature changes, alcohol use, and spicy foods.
Should You Receive a Rosacea Treatment?
For those suffering from rosacea, it’s common to feel self-conscious whenever their symptoms flare up. Rosacea can make daily life difficult for some; sufferers might constantly obsess over their appearance in public, and in some cases, those suffering from rosacea might avoid social situations outright. Some patients even miss out on work because of the potential embarrassment of a flare-up. Rosacea can also cause considerable anxiety for people who never can never guess when flare-ups will appear. For those suffering from rosacea, it might seem like effective treatments are few and far between.
Rosacea is a complex condition, one that requires a combination of approaches in addition to further treatments to maintain results. At Renew MediSpa, we offer many different options for treating Rosacea. From advanced laser treatments to powerful skincare products, Renew MediSpa offers relief for patients who are ready to leave years of worry and embarrassment behind.
Our Treatments for Rosacea
Renew MediSpa offers a diverse range of Rosacea treatments for patients to choose from. While other treatments for collapsing abnormal blood vessels might be invasive or incredibly painful, Renew Medispa is proud to offer a collection of nonsurgical, comfortable, and safe treatments.
The Excel V Laser Facial
The Excel V laser is known for its effects on vascular skin conditions like rosacea. The Excel V laser utilizes a dual wavelength treatment for a powerful, versatile, yet safe rosacea treatment. And thanks to its sapphire contact cooling hand piece, the Excel V laser provides constant cooling to the treatment area to protect the skin and to keep the treatment as comfortable as possible.
The Excel V laser uses a high-powered green laser that targets the hemoglobin in our blood vessels; by targeting hemoglobin, this rosacea treatment can deliver a precise amount of heat to the blood vessels, causing them to collapse. This also means that the Excel V can target these abnormal blood vessels without harming your delicate facial skin.
Excel V’s adjustable spot size and efficacy at different skin depths means it’s incredibly versatile and safe enough to use for patients of all skin types. Your treatment is comfortable enough to be delivered, if the patient desires, without anesthetics, and the entire procedure might only take 15-30 minutes to perform.
Although patients will be able to see an improvement with one treatment, they still might need multiple rounds of treatments to see complete results. On average, our patients see remarkable improvement for their rosacea within 1 to 3 sessions.
Renew MediSpa can also offer powerful, medical-grade skincare as a rosacea treatment.
While the Alastin Skincare line was originally designed to help shorten a patient’s recovery from a cosmetic procedure, their products are now considered to be effective standalone products for healing the skin. Alastin Skincare products are formulated using advanced TriHex technology, meaning it’s filled with proprietary peptides and other powerful substances that encourage the skin to heal and rebuild itself. Alastin products support the skin’s extracellular matrix, the components of the skin that are crucial for its structure and function.
By triggering the skin’s natural healing process, Alastin Skincare clears away skin damaged by rosacea, soothes inflammation, and protects the skin from further damage.
Our various creams and serums can do wonders for soothing the irritation and redness caused by rosacea. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, our skincare products repair the skin and facilitate the growth of healthier, more evenly toned skin. Thanks to our medical grade skincare products, our patients will be able to have an effective rosacea treatment as well as powerful anti-aging.
