Rosacea usually first appears as subtle reddening on the face, and over time, can develop into inflammation and skin eruptions. Common symptoms of rosacea include flushing or blushing which occurs easily and lasts longer than normal, burning or stinging sensations, or visible red lines on the face. While rosacea usually affects the face, it can also occur on the chest, neck, ears, back and scalp.

Types of Rosacea skin disorder

  • Erythematotelangiectatic is the most common type of rosacea. It is characterized by flushing and persistent redness, and may also include visible blood vessels (veins with rosacea).
  • Phymatous rosacea causes skin thickening, often resulting in Rhinopyma (enlargement of the nose) from excess tissue.
  • Papulopustular rosacea is often called acne rosacea. It is characterized by persistent redness with transient pimples and bumps.

Who Gets Rosacea?

Rosacea is most common in adults aged 30-60, although it has been diagnosed in children.

What Causes Rosacea?

Exact causes of rosacea are still unknown, however a variety of lifestyle factors (such as particular foods and activities) can trigger rosacea outbreaks.

Treating redness

We offer a number of skin treatments that can redness. Photo rejuvenation VPL laser treatments and redness reducing facials are effective in targeting the problem along with specific Murad facials that can help treat redness. 

What to eat

Diet can also effect skin redness. Carrots, kumara and broccoli are packed with anti-oxidants that will help protect cells from environmental damage that can further irritate rosacea-prone skin.

Lower the “hot” spice levels in your diet. Hot spices including black pepper, cayenne, chili powder and paprika can trigger inflammation. Try fresh or dried herbs and “cool” seasonings like ginger to add extra flavour to your meals.
