Is rosacea a battle for you?
You’re not alone. Many are afflicted by the chronic skin condition which leaves sufferers with redness and flushing on the nose and cheeks.
“The skin flares up and the face gets red from dilated blood vessels,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center. “There are usually a lot of broken capillaries too if left untreated.”
For more serious cases, a dermatologist’s care is recommended. But those with more mild cases of the common skin condition can find relief with a variety of spa treatments and products.
For instance, Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center carries the Avene Antirougeurs Redness Relief line, geared toward those with sensitive skin.
“We can also do a series of mandelic peels to tighten up the capillaries,” Malinowski said.
That type of chemical peel exfoliates dead skin cells and is specifically formulated for patients that experience redness or sensitivity on a regular basis.
Other ideal treatments for rosacea sufferers include facials, which involves deep pore cleansing, exfoliation and extractions, and microdermabrasion, a deep exfoliation treatment recommended for skin discoloration.
