Posted by Courtesy of Credentials Skincare on Mar 13th 2018

Rosacea affects over 16 million Americans, and despite
its prevalence, often goes untreated, underreported or misdiagnosed.

   

Rosacea sufferers are typically between the ages of 30 to 50, and while most
tend to be women, men's symptoms are often more severe.

Symptoms:

  • Tendency to flush or blush easily
  • Persistent redness and swelling
  • Bumps and pus-filled pimples
  • Visible threadlike blood vessels
  • Burning, stinging and/or itching
  • Dry and/or tight skin
  • Thickening skin on nose, cheek or forehead

Triggers:

  • Weather and Environment
  • Food and Beverage
  • Over-stimulation or harsh ingredients
  • Erratic body heat or extreme heat
  • Stress
  • Starting a form of treatment and then discontinuing

While there is no cure for Rosacea, treating the symptoms will reduce
its appearance and prevent further progression.


Treatments include: 

Oral or topical medication, laser and light therapies, daily skincare maintenance and lifestyle modifications.

A combination of therapies can enhance the effects of each therapy, and provide more positive results.
