Rosacea treatment for women


Rosacea is a common yet complex skin condition, unique to people of Northern European descent.  It can appear as permanent redness, sensitivity, blood vessel abnormalities (enlargement, or ‘broken’ capillaries), flaky skin, papules and pustules, and thickening of the skin.

These conditions usually appear in a butterfly-shaped pattern that covers the cheeks and nose.


It is generally accepted that rosacea is a blood-vessel disorder, but the precise mechanisms remain unclear.

Rosacea usually begins with a tendency to “flush and blush” in childhood and adolescence.

This is usually accompanied by a ruddy complexion and sensitivity to skincare and make-up products.

In the early adult years, this redness fluctuates and appears to clear up for certain periods, but as time progresses, the redness and sensitivity usually become permanent.
