Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by facial redness. It often starts out as a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people. Many people with the condition develop acne-like bumps around the central area of the face. While rosacea typically affects the face, it can begin to spread to other areas of the body such as the ears, neck and chest.
Rosacea is a harmless condition, but it often causes the sufferer a great deal of distress and embarrassment. While there is no cure for rosacea, there are a number of different treatments that can help control the appearance of rosacea symptoms and reduce the number of flare-ups.
Chemical peels can be effective in improving the redness and other symptoms of rosacea. A peel is a means of chemically exfoliating the skin to speed up cellular turnover and slough off dead skin cells. A rosacea chemical peel works to remove the unwanted facial tissue caused by rosacea in order to smooth the skin’s surface, help kill bacteria and soothe redness.
Though a chemical peel can help to relieve the symptoms of rosacea, if you have sensitive or dry skin, a chemical peel may not be appropriate for you. Another treatment like IPL Photofacial may be a more ideal method for controlling the appearance of rosacea.
