How to treat rosacea

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is caused by inflammation of the dermis which stems from damage of the skin and internal organs such as the liver or gastrointestinal tract. Rosacea can also be passed on genetically but if addressed at a young age or when symptoms begin to show can be significantly kept under control

Redness, acne like rashes or facial veins medically referred to as Flushing Rosacea, Actinic Rosacea and Telangiectasia are easily managed ailments if underlying triggers are addressed; However identifying triggers can be a difficult task with the amount of things in this world that can irritate the skin or body and not all individuals are treatable as it could be a side effect of a necessary medication they're taking

Treating Rosacea

Some cases of Rosacea are self induced and require major changes in ones diet, lifestyle and or environment. Symptoms do worsen over time and can't be fully diminished but can be treated topically with anti-inflammatory ointments & supplements in conjunction with Phototherapy also known as Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or a Cold Laser. Typically 1 to 6 Phototherapy sessions are needed for ideal results, followed by seasonal, sometimes yearly maintenance treatments as this isn't a disorder that can be cured, only managed

Prior to supplementation one should consider a Food Intolerance Evaluation
