April is Rosacea Awareness Month

April 3rd, 2019

April is Rosacea Awareness Month and Montana Medical Aesthetics Clinic would love to give you some information about this chronic disorder as well as ways that we can help!

Rosacea affects approximately 16 million Americans and 415 million people worldwide. It impacts quality of life and affects one’s personal appearance.

Rosacea is a chronic disorder with flare ups and remissions. It usually begins after the age of 30 with flushing, redness to cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. If left untreated, the redness from Rosacea can become more rough and persistent, often developing visible red blood vessels. Men, in particular, can often develop a nose that is more swollen and bumpy.

Diagnostic signs of rosacea include persistent redness or skin thickening. Redness may resemble a sunburn or blushing and skin thickening often occurs around the nose. Major signs of rosacea, which may be present if you carry this diagnosis, include flushing, bumps and pimples, visible blood vessels, and eye irritation.

Researchers are still trying to identify the cause of rosacea. It is likely that facial redness is the start of an inflammatory process, during which the skin cycles between neurovascular dysregulation and the normal processes of the immune system. This causes irregularities at the microbiological level. Currently, research is being done by the National Rosacea Society studying these microbiological components known as cathelicidins. Other research has led us to think that there may be a genetic component to Rosacea as well. And because Rosacea seems to be an outcome of systemic inflammation, it may be linked to other inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. All of these processes lead to a buildup of bacteria, further increasing inflammation and exacerbating the cycle.

While, there are many treatment regimens available for Rosacea, a treatment plan should be tailored to an individual’s unique needs. Some of these treatments include oral and topical medications, as well as lasers and broad band light. Skin care for rosacea should include a non-abrasive cleanser with minimal rubbing or irritation of the skin. Patients should wear sun protection, protecting their skin using UVA/UVB protection of SPF 30 or higher.

And lastly, long term management of rosacea may include lifestyle modifications. Keeping a diary of diet and exposure so that one can relate it to flare ups may be helpful in identifying the root-cause of an individual’s rosacea flare up.

At Montana Medical Aesthetics Clinic we understand the emotional, social, and occupational impact that skin conditions can have on your life. We offer a combination laser and broad brand light therapy that helps to breakdown the hemoglobin in the vascularities on the face and/or neck as well as to kill bacteria that may have been building up in these areas over time. The first part of the treatment addresses the deeper vascular tissues, causing an immune mediated response that brings fibroblasts into the treated area. This encourages new collagen growth over the course of several days and helps to support existing vessels, addressing both scarring and pore size. There is also a component of this treatment that helps to kill the problem causing bacteria that leads to inflammation and pustule formation. The second half of our treatment regimen addresses the more surface vascularities, affecting redness and surface texture and discoloration.

This is a two-part treatment, often requiring 4-6 treatments for best results, and a personalized maintenance routine. One should expect extensive swelling with the first several treatments. This swelling improves with each treatment but is to be expected as the treatment relies on micro trauma to the deeper tissues of the skin.

We would love to talk to you about our treatment options for rosacea. We can develop a treatment plan, tailored to your individual needs. Please call our office today so that we can schedule a free, 1-hour consultations where we can get to know you and can answer any questions or concerns you may have. You deserve the confidence that comes with brighter, healthier skin!
