Rosacea & Facial Redness Treatment & Management | Ode Dermatology

What is rosacea?

If you live with rosacea, you may find that it impacts your daily life and self-esteem. Along with this, rosacea can cause issues such as irritated eyes and swelling in the nose. If left untreated, the skin can worsen over time.

Fortunately, modern cosmetic techniques allow us to treat rosacea and help patients avoid flare-ups and improve the overall quality of their skin. ODE Dermatology in Melbourne is one of the best clinics for rosacea treatment. We use high-quality methods in order to improve discoloured skin tones and restore a smoother and more even complexion.

What causes rosacea?

Although the exact causes of rosacea are unknown, certain people are at a higher risk for the condition. For example, people with fair skin tend to blush more easily and are therefore more likely to develop rosacea. Although it tends to be more common in women, men tend to have worse symptoms. Men and women over the age of 30 are also at a higher risk, as well as people who have a family history of rosacea.

Certain things can trigger rosacea, such as:

  • Sun exposure and hot weather
  • Alcohol, coffee, and tea
  • Spicy foods
  • Exercise and stress
  • Hot baths
  • Certain skincare products

You cannot prevent rosacea from appearing; however, there are things you can do to reduce your symptoms. For example, it’s a good idea to avoid drinking alcohol and refrain from spending lots of time in direct sunlight. Your rosacea treatment specialist will be able to give you appropriate advice on how to manage your condition.
