The team at the Beautology Clinic at Westbury Park in Bristol are experts in treating Rosacea.

What Is Rosacea

Rosacea is a common condition for both men and women, particularly between the ages of 30-50 who have fair skin and blush easily.

Rosacea can cause redness, bumps and/or swelling, especially on the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin and can look similar to acne. Unlike acne, however, people with Rosacea don’t get blackheads but do get dilated blood vessels (called telangiectasias).

Rosacea is a chronic condition and rarely resolves without treatment. Mild Rosacea can be limited to mild redness of the cheeks. However, in the most severe forms, the skin overlying the nose can become permanently swollen and red (called rhinophyma) because of dilated blood vessels and abnormal enlargement of oil glands. Other potential symptoms of Rosacea include eye irritation (burning, stinging, grittiness, and/or dryness) and styes.

The cause of Rosacea is still unknown, but there are a number of exacerbating factors that should be avoided. Triggers of Rosacea include but are not limited to sunlight, wind, cold or hot temperatures, alcohol, spicy foods, hot drinks, skin care products, rubbing or scrubbing off the face, and exercise. Sun block of at least SPF 15 and hats are recommended.

What Treatments Are Available

"My rosacea built up over a period of years to the point thatI was so conscious about it that I was wearing thick make-up. I went to Beautology for treatment which quickly resolved the problem. My only regret is not having it years ago."
