Despite being so common, there is a lot we still don’t know about rosacea. Appearing in mid-life, this condition is characterized by facial redness and the appearance of itchy skin bumps. If left untreated, the problem can get worse over time, causing you to develop inflamed papules and pustules on your cheek and nose. Rosacea can feel embarrassing and distressing for those struggling with it. If you struggle with this condition, an aesthetic treatment may be the right choice for you. Here at BodyLase® Med Spa, we offer several treatment methods for helping you regain your beauty and comfort.

How Does Rosacea Occur?

Rosacea can develop when a person’s immune system is altered in some way. The main cause responsible for the appearance of this issue seems to be a protein called cathelicidin peptide. When a lot of this specific protein is produced by the body, the skin becomes inflamed and begins to have enlarged vessels along with irritation. This immune response may be triggered by genetic, environmental, or a combination of both factors. Rosacea is a multi-factored skin condition and therefore it is difficult to pinpoint its main cause.

Treatment Options

The good news is that rosacea can be treated using laser technology. Here at our med spas, our professional BodyLase® providers offer both IPL Photofacial sessions and laser facials to help you ease your skin irritation and improve its texture. Several sessions may be necessary for the best results, but each will be delivered with the highest level of care and precision. We prioritize your comfort above all else and we’ll do everything possible to ensure you remain relaxed. To learn more about our treatments, visit the pages below:
