Treatment Option to
About 10% of the population is affected by rosacea. Women between the ages of 30 and 60 can especially be affected, but men can also be bothered. For a long time, there was little to do with this skin condition, but now we can treat using a variety of different methods well. The result depends on the severity. In addition, external factors may also affect the skin's appearance.
In addition to skin problems, rosacea sometimes causes eye problems. Often, patients experience a light burning or stinging sensation, like a sand grain in the eye. Depending on the complaints and the skin's appearance, the different characteristics of rosacea can be treated.
Different stages of rosacea:
Stage 1: general redness and superficial vascular disorders (telepathy / couperosis)
Stage 2: small bumps (papules) and pimples (pustules) develop
Stage 3: increased inflammation occurs. In some cases, a nasal thickening occurs (rhinophyma)
Stage 4: In addition to the above, the eyes are affected. There is a burning / itchy feeling, as if there is a sand granule in the eye
If you have rosacea, it is important that you use mild skin care products. The skin is quickly irritated and does not tolerate many ordinary cosmetic products. It is highly recommended to use skin products with a higher concentration of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E. Try to further prevent factors that increase your rosacea as much as possible. Exposure to cold, heat or wind for example, eating spicy foods and drinking alcohol. Furthermore, you should also try to avoid sunlight as much as possible. When going out into the sun, use a sunscreen with a high protection factor (SPF).
IPL Treatment for Rosacea
OCP Medical Center features highly effective and safe treatments for rosacea. For rosacea, we typically recommend treatment with IPL using the Lumenis M22 System. This system is considered one of the most advanced and effective systems on the market today.
Treating rosacea requires expertise. Your skin is thoroughly evaluated and the treatment plan differs from person to person. OCP Medical Center uses different treatment methods for effectively treating rosacea.
The pimples and inflammations in the skin are often treated with antibiotic tablets or with a cream or gel that contains antibiotics. The inflammation, redness and superficial vesicles can be reduced by light and / or laser treatment. Sometimes this treatment is combined with a superficial peeling (with salicylic or glycolic acid) to calm the skin and improve the condition. In addition, you will also receive advice on a customized skin care.
The redness of the skin can be treated using IPL. OCP Medical Center features the latest Lumenis M22 with a specific IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Module, which is highly effective to treat rosacea. This IPL is not to be compared to an IPL which is used for hair removal used by beauty therapists. Our IPL has significantly more energy and multiple treatment combinations are possible. Within a few treatments, rosacea can be significantly reduced.
