Rosacea – facial redness , even when you are not embarrassed

Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition characterized by inflamed red skin. Inflammation caused by stress or skin’s microbial overgrowth is the leading cause of Rosacea.It affects adults and is often progressive. It is possible to mistake Rosacea for other skin problems, such as acne, eczema, or an allergic reaction
Papulopustular Rosacea is the classic form of Rosacea that resembles and can be mistaken for acne. This sub-type of Rosacea is characterized primarily by an area of chronic facial redness and pustules(small bumps) that are filled with pus. The pustules are similar in appearance to whiteheads but are often larger. The affected area can burn and sting and appear to be extremely dry. The pustules can appear on the nose, forehead, and cheeks.

 Rosacea and  Papulopustular Rosacea Causes


  • Stress and anxiety – disrupts your blood pressure, arteries, heart and skin and affects your immune system in a negative way and is a Rosacea trigger.
  • Menopause – at this time in a woman’s life the hormones go crazy and cause an increase in testosterone and certain oestrogens, which will cause the face to flush.
  • Caffeine – causes the adrenal glands to overwork and stimulates skin redness, heat, heart palpitations and sweating. Remember that soft drinks and tea also have Caffeine which are an aggravated Rosacea diet food
  • MSG – a carcinogen that is found in many packaged foods and hidden in many others. MSG has a major side effect of facial flushing and increasing the body’s temperature gauge and is a no go of Rosacea diet food
  • Alcohol – mainly red wine, whisky, vodka and champagne, and are a Rosacea trigger


Rosacea and  Papulopustular Rosacea treatment 

The use of IPL to treat Papulopustular  Rosacea is a form of photo rejuvenation. It uses light to rejuvenate the tissues of the face in a way that is more direct than topical treatments or oral medication.
IPL uses pulses of light at specific wave lengths so that it penetrates the skin’s surface and targets the root of the problem beneath the skin. It targets the lower layers of the skin(the dermis), without affecting the visible layers (the epidermis). So while you may experience some redness immediately after treatment, the downtime is minimal.
 IPL is a non-ablative technique meaning that it doesn’t cut out tissues. Instead, it uses specific wavelengths to penetrate deep beneath the skin. The light energy in IPL affects the skin in different ways once it penetrates the outer layers of skin and reaches the dermis.
It works by speeding up the healing process, breaking down excess pigmentation into smaller particles that can be flushed out naturally through your body’s lymphatic system, or pushing them to the surface of the skin (the epidermis), where they will be naturally exfoliated in time as part of the skin’s natural shedding process. It can even encourage the production of more collagen so that your skin looks healthier and more youthful than ever.
