How To Get Rid of Rosacea Permanently

Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide, causing redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels on the face. While there is no cure for rosacea, there are many treatment options available that can help reduce the symptoms. At Dr Newmans Clinic, we understand the impact that rosacea can have on your confidence and quality of life, which is why we offer comprehensive rosacea treatment as part of our skin treatment and spider vein treatment services.

Understanding rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes facial redness, visible blood vessels (telangiectasia), and often, acne-like bumps or pimples on the face. Rosacea typically affects adults over 30 and is more common in women than men, but while the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, factors such as genetics, environmental triggers, and an overactive immune system are believed to play a role in its appearance.

What are the symptoms of rosacea?

Symptoms of rosacea usually start with minor episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for a short amount of time, but as the condition progresses, other symptoms can start to appear:

  • Burning or stinging sensation on the face
  • Permanent redness
  • Spots (papules and pustules)
  • Small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible (telangiectasia)

Rosacea is a relapsing skin condition which means that during a relapse, symptoms can become more severe, but during other periods, they can be much less intense.

How to treat rosacea

Dealing with rosacea is a complex process that requires a personalised treatment strategy, with an approach that considers each individual's specific skin characteristics. At Dr Newmans Clinic, our experienced doctors offer a range of advanced treatments to effectively address rosacea and facial redness as part of our comprehensive skin treatment and spider vein treatment services. 

Effective rosacea treatment aims to reduce redness, control inflammation, and manage flare-ups to improve the appearance and comfort of the skin. Here are just a few ways to treat rosacea:

Medically-advised skincare

Whilst typically not a standalone treatment option, our experts will recommend medical-grade skincare products specifically formulated to soothe and calm sensitive skin, reduce redness, and strengthen the skin's barrier function. In general, we advise patients who suffer with rosacea to use non-irritating skincare products and always use protection from sun exposure by using a high-factor SPF. 

Veinwave technology

We utilise state-of-the-art technology to target and reduce visible blood vessels, redness, and inflammation associated with rosacea, promoting clearer, more even-toned skin on the face. Veinwave technology encourages the body to naturally reabsorb the damaged veins by applying a very small and localised amount of microwave energy into the damaged vein, causing it to be blocked off and be naturally absorbed by the body.

Topical treatments

Our specialists here at Dr Newmans Clinic are on hand to recommend topical treatments, such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, or azelaic acid, to help reduce redness, inflammation, and acne-like breakouts associated with rosacea. We always advise that you speak to your GP for guidance on the best course of action for prescription medication for treating rosacea.

How to get rid of rosacea

While there is currently no permanent cure for rosacea, with proper treatment and management, it is possible to significantly improve the appearance and symptoms of the condition. At Dr Newmans Clinic, our experienced team will work closely with you to develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your unique skin goals, helping you achieve clearer, healthier-looking skin.

How to relieve rosacea symptoms

As well as some of the medical treatments available, there are several things you can do day-to-day to relive some of the symptoms of rosacea:

  1. We always recommend that you avoid any known triggers such as spicy foods, alcohol, and extreme temperatures. Understanding what your personal triggers are can help you identify things to restrict or be cautious of, and minimising these triggers will reduce the chances of a flare up.
  2. Always protect your skin from the sun by wearing SPF and protective clothing, especially in areas where you suffer with rosacea.
  3. Use gentle skincare products specifically formulated for sensitive skin to prevent any irritation and be sure to avoid harsh cleansers, exfoliants and scrubs that could damage the surface of the skin.
