Rosacea is a skin condition that does not have a cure. That does not mean the symptoms cannot be treated and reduced. FotoFacial RF® is the standard treatment today to reduce or remove the flushing, redness and ruddy complexion caused by broken capillaries and spider veins on the face.
The main symptoms of rosacea are visible blood vessels and redness on the skin. There may be small, pus-filled bumps that flare up for a few weeks or months and then subside. It may look like acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problem. Triggers such as hot drinks, alcohol, spicy food, cold wind, overexertion, cosmetics and some medications can cause flare-ups. Women, people who smoke, people over the age of 30 and people with sun-damaged skin are more prone to develop rosacea.
