Rosacea Treatment Glasgow



Rosacea, otherwise known as acne rosacea, is a dermatological condition that can affect anyone’s skin — although it is usually associated with adults.

Caused by certain triggers to sensitive skin, the condition mainly displays as facial redness and inflammation. It is often associated with pustules. The symptoms of this condition include facial flushing with swollen red bumps and visible blood vessels that reflect under the skin, causing a sensation of stinging or burning on the skin or an itchy sensation.

Apart from physical effects, it also impacts quality of life, as many people with rosacea experience low self-esteem and self-confidence and tend to minimise social interactions.

An Effective Solution for Rosacea

If you suffer from this condition, there are non-surgical skin care treatments available at our cosmetic clinic in Glasgow — the most recommended of these used to be an IPL treatment for rosacea. We no longer offer this traditional IPL treatment, but rather a more advanced version of it: BroadBand Light (BBL). For this procedure, we use the Sciton BBL™ laser device.

Other effective treatment options for this condition include skin peels as part of a bigger, overarching treatment plan. All of our rosacea treatment options can be implemented with any good skin care routine. Our skin care experts will be able to guide you on the best way forward.

We offer private online consultations that allow you to ask questions and find out more about our rosacea treatments. You can decide if it’s right for you with advice from an expert.

There are various types of rosacea, including vascular rosacea, inflammatory rosacea, phymatous rosacea, and ocular rosacea. Ocular rosacea is one of the most common types — caused by sun damage which affects the skin’s barrier function.

Rosacea typically presents itself as redness around the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead.

If this is affecting you, visit our clinic to have a skin analysis done by a professional and find a skin care treatment plan that works for you.

Is There a Cure for Rosacea?

Rosacea is among some of the skin conditions that are most challenging to address.

It is usually managed by your GP with the help of prescription antibiotics and medication. It is generally difficult to treat otherwise. In severe cases, it can be treated with a drug called Roaccutane under the supervision of a consultant dermatologist.

While conventional antibiotic treatment or specialist treatment by a dermatologist is the mainstay of treatment for this relapsing condition, occasionally, if you have a less severe form of rosacea or do not wish to undergo conventional drug treatment, a treatment called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is recommended. We offer the latest technology in this type of treatment through the use of the BBL laser.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) — BroadBand Light (BBL)

Intense Pulse Light is a non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to improve the skin. BroadBand Light is an advancement of this technology that is less painful and offers more accuracy and precision — which is why the Sciton BBL laser is our chosen method for this type of treatment.

This rosacea laser treatment uses very bright light in a short burst to target pigments and broken red veins within the skin. This pigmentation removal method targets red and brown pigments in the skin, which generates a burst of heat that causes the tiny blood vessels to reabsorb into the skin, thus reducing the appearance of redness on the skin.

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

The ‘damage’ inflicted by the light energy encourages your body to reabsorb broken veins, ultimately improving and fading their appearance.

The light also warms up the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen. This improves the support of small blood vessels and delays the development of thread veins. There is also some evidence that the heat generated can help destroy some of the glands that produce the excess sebum, which is also sometimes associated with acne rosacea.
