How to Treat Rosacea

treatment room

Rosacea may be considered a “common” skin condition, but that doesn’t make you feel any better about it.  Rosacea is easily identifiable, as it causes red flushing on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead.  Some rosacea sufferers also experience tiny bumps – or pimples – on the afflicted areas, which can make it difficult to cover up this skin condition.  In some rare cases, rosacea can even inflame a person’s eyes.

While there’s no none cause for rosacea – and that can make it difficult to treat – skin experts think that having fair skin and having a history of rosacea in the family makes it much more likely that you’ll suffer from it.  If you have rosacea, you’ll find that alcohol can make the symptoms worse; it’s important to note that alcohol does not actually cause it.

When you suffer from rosacea, you need a treatment that you can rely on for excellent results.  At A Beautiful You Medical Spa – with locations in Memphis, Tennessee, Arkansas – our skincare experts know how to treat rosacea so those embarrassing symptoms are minimized.  It’s important to note that there is no known cure for rosacea, so our solutions help to minimize how bad the breakouts are, but not completely prevent them.

Based on the severity of your rosacea symptoms, we may recommend the following treatments:

  • I Peel Lightening Lift Peel Solution:  This skincare line has developed a professional-grade facial peel that helps ease the most common symptoms of rosacea, including redness and irritation.  This facial treatment also contains lightening treatments that can temporarily reduce the look of redness immediately after treatment. Be sure to wear sunscreen after this treatment, as your skin will be sensitive to the sun.
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing:  These innovative treatments can help ease the symptoms of rosacea, as they help kick-start collagen production levels.  This helps turn over skin faster, which slowly fades the look of rosacea, scars, sun damage, and other complexion woes.
  • Medical Grade Chemical Peels:  These facial treatments use fruit acids, herbs, and antioxidants to gently remove dead and dull surface skin, thus revealing new and youthful-looking skin.  This means that rosacea symptoms can be gently eased, resulting in clearer skin that isn’t as red or irritated as before.

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, our skincare experts can help determine which is the best treatment for you based on your rosacea symptoms.  To determine which facial treatment is right for you, schedule a consultation at A Beautiful You Medical Spa at one of our two locations in Memphis, TN , AR. Our Memphis location serves Germantown and Bartlett.
