About Rosacea

Rosacea is a relatively common skin disease. It usually arises after age 30 and is more common in women than in men.  Since rosacea affects, preferably, people with very clear skin, those who do not usually get tanned, even if exposed to the sun. The disease is more common in people with English, Irish or Scottish descent.

The path physiological mechanisms that lead to the development of rosacea have not yet been fully elucidated. It is known that the disease arises from a combination of several factors, including abnormalities in the immune system, inflammatory reactions to skin microorganisms, ultraviolet light damage and dysfunction of the blood vessels. Among the germs that may be related to rosacea, two stand out: the Demodex folliculorum mite and Bacillus olenorius bacteria, both normally present on our skin.

Rosacea treatments focus on helping to remove toxins, improve circulatory and lymphatic flow, relieves erythema and edema. Intense light pulsed and manual lymphatic drainage are very indicated to treat the symptoms. These procedures help to  improve erythema, temperature and general appearance of the facial skin. Some types of laser are also indicated to treat vascular lesions.
