When your skin doesn’t look as smooth and blemish free as you’d like it can be difficult to feel completely confident about yourself. Rosacea is a very common skin condition that causes facial redness and pimples on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead and often looks like adult acne.

As well as causing the sensitive skin on your face to be red and sometimes inflamed and swollen, rosacea can lead to soreness and a burning sensation around the eyes and eyelids. At the Elixir Cosmetics, we have rosacea treatments that will help control irritation and symptoms.

Despite little being known about the main cause/s of rosacea, the condition is quite common. In fact it is estimated that rosacea affects around 10% of the population, although severity of the condition varies. People with fair skin seem to be more susceptible to rosacea, but the condition – which cause unsightly or extreme redness to all or part the skin’s surface – can also occur in people with darker skin, including those patients of Asian and African origin.

We have various cosmetic treatments that can help to reduce rosacea symptoms and improve the appearance of the skin. Book a consultation to learn more.

Why consider rosacea treatments?

The main reason people choose rosacea treatments is because they offer non-surgical solutions to the symptoms this skin condition can present. These include redness to the nose, chin and cheeks, as well as visible blood vessels. Treatments at Elixir Cosmetics are varied and versatile, meaning we can also help to rejuvenate the skin as well as reduce rosacea indications.

For those coping with rosacea, unfortunately other distressing symptoms of the condition can develop over time such as painful burning and stinging sensations across the skin on the face, permanent or often aggressive bouts of facial redness, papules and pustules (which manifest as spots) and even small blood vessels in the skin becoming more prominent. This is often common across the cheeks and nose. In very severe cases, the skin (usually on and around the nose) can thicken and enlarge.
