What can i do at my facial salon about my rosacea? Red Lotus in Portland, Oregon tells you what to do with your rosacea.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, small and superficial dilated blood vessels on facial skin, papules, pustules, and swelling.Rosacea affects all ages and has four subtypes, three affecting the skin and the fourth affecting the eyes (ocular type). Left untreated it worsens over time. Treatment in the form of topical steroids can aggravate the condition. So what can we do about this condition? First, know what triggers your rosacea. For a lot of people these are exercising, alcohol, hot showers or baths, spicy foods or climate in general. While there are some triggers we cannot avoid, such as climate and regular exercise, homecare can be a great help in making the condition more manageable. Skin care management is the most successful results I have seen over the years with Rosacea, which is very common in Oregon.
I consult with clients as to peels and mild progressive facial treatments as well as home care products. Usually within a few month most clients are able to manage their condition so well they stop using medications.
We recommend Anti- Redness serum from PCA Skin.
This unique formulation calms, soothes and improves the appearance of sensitive skin prone to redness.
