The skin condition known as rosacea, which causes the skin to look inflamed and red, is commonly presented across the cheeks and nose. It can frequently be confused with other skin ailments but may be treated and handled if diagnosed correctly. Nadomi Medspa in Wareham, MA offers innovative solutions, such as laser treatment with Cutera® excel® HR technology, to lighten skin and minimize the signs of this chronic condition. Rosacea can happen to almost anybody, but it is widespread among middle-aged and elderly women with light skin. Rosacea is a skin disease with no actual cure, but it may be managed. When left untreated, it may worsen over the years, causing symptoms to persist and flare up for weeks and weeks. Dr. Nada Zaknoun will evaluate your skin for symptoms and create a personalized treatment plan to keep them at bay.
what are the Causes of rosacea?
Though the specific cause of the condition is unknown, it may be brought on by a combination of environmental and hereditary aspects. Individuals of Scandinavian or Celtic ancestry appear to have a greater prevalence of rosacea. Patients normally have other relatives who suffer from severe acne or rosacea. Individuals who are likely to have bad acne also have a greater chance of developing rosacea. Specialists believe that an overactive immune system may also lead to rosacea, especially when your immune system panics with exposure to a particular bacterium or even a mite. These theories, however, have not been shown to be fully supported.
You will find a significant number of elements that may aggravate rosacea because they raise the blood circulation to the top of the skin. These may include spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, sun, extreme temperatures, hot showers and/or baths, anxiety, anger or embarrassment, overexertion, and specific drugs.
What are Symptoms of rosacea?
Signs of rosacea may differ from moderate to severe. The standard indication of rosacea is a red face. In the majority of individuals, the central part of the face is obviously red. The blood vessels of the cheeks and nose may swell and be obvious. Other signs include swollen and red bumps of the face, which appear like acne. At times, the lumps contain discharge. The skin may also feel tender and hot to the touch. Around half of rosacea sufferers have eye issues, including dryness, irritation, and red, swollen eyelids. In rare circumstances, your nose can look swollen as the condition can cause the skin on your nose to thicken, which leads to a bulbous look.
what are the Treatment Options for rosacea?
Although there is not currently a cure for rosacea, there are several treatment alternatives available. At Nadomi Medspa, Dr. Zaknoun utilizes laser technology to effectively treat the side effects of rosacea. The excel HR system utilizes two laser wavelengths for more effective results. It is safe and effective for most skin types. During the treatment, Dr. Zaknoun will glide the laser handpiece over the affected areas of the skin.
