Rosacea is the result of surface capillaries dilating; creating a red flush. Rosacea is more common in people with a Celtic heritage and is three times more common in women. The Vivo Skin Clinic offers a range of treatments that receive good results.
There are no official causes of Rosacea, but a combination of hereditary and environmental factors can trigger its symptoms. These triggers include
• Strenuous Exercise
• Spicy Foods
• Histamines (wine, cheese, yoghurt, beer)
To treat Rosacea and redness, we recommend a combination of Micro-Needling, Cosmedical Peels and/or IPL Skin Rejuvenation.
Micro-Needling (also known as Dermal Rolling or Collagen Induction Therapy) works to even your skin tone and help stimulate collagen rejuvenation.
Chemical Peels stimulate cell renewal, refine, rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, as well as regenerate and resurface damaged skin improving your skin tone and texture.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation treats the dilated blood vessels. The affected vessels absorb light resulting in the destruction of visible blood vessels, which then become naturally absorbed by the body. Over time, and with the right course of treatment, the redness and flushing of the skin that causes Rosacea becomes visibly reduced.
