Suffering From Rosacea? Try These Kelowna Skin Treatments

Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition that is easily controllable and medically managed. It commonly affects the central third of the face, especially the nose, and is characterized by:

  • Facial redness
  • Burning or stinging skin
  • Irritated and/or red eyes
  • Dry skin
  • Pus-filled bumps or pimples

If you suffer from one or more the above symptoms, there are many viable rosacea treatment options available to help restore the health and vitality of your skin.

Rosacea Skin Treatment Options

  1. Avoid Known Triggers

The following list covers specific things found to aggravate the symptoms of rosacea in most patients. It is best to avoid them in order to prevent any flare ups.

  • Temperature Extremes: Saunas, hot baths & other excessively warm environments
  • Emotional Influences: Try avoid situations which will cause you stress and anxiety
  • Beverages: Drinks known to trigger rosacea flare ups include alcohol and hot drinks
  • Skin Care Products: Avoid cosmetics containing alcohol, witch hazel or fragrances as well as hydro-alcoholic and acetone substances.
  • Certain drugs: Long-term use of vasodilators and topical steroids have been found to trigger rosacea symptoms.
  1. Topical Prescription Skin Creams

Your rosacea treatment options will depend on the type of rosacea you have. Most of the creams and oral medications help patients with papulopustular rosacea. Symptoms include:

  • Small pimples
  • Facial flushing
  • Tiny red lines on the cheeks

There are many different varieties of skin care products and cosmetics which can be used in the treatment of rosacea. An in-depth consultation with one of our skin care experts will help determine the best treatment course for you.

  1. V-Beam Laser Skin Treatment

V-Beam laser is a skin treatment designed to treat certain skin conditions such as rosacea. During the treatment, a pulse of light will be sent into the skin, destroying the blood vessels and allowing them to be reabsorbed into the body.

The destruction of these blood vessels results in a smoother, clearer and more uniform complexion. Because the laser is non-ablative, it doesn’t destroy the surrounding tissue.

Customized Rosacea Treatments

At our Kelowna skin care centre, we believe that the more we know about your skin, the better able we are to treat it successfully.

That is why we use the digital skin analysis system, VISIA, to determine your unique skin profile and create a framework for a personalized rosacea treatment program.

This incredible innovation allows our patients to monitor their progress from treatment to treatment and allows our skin-care experts to make any necessary adjustments to provide you with the safest, most effective results.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
