Rosacea is a form of acne and is the result of sebaceous glands that gradually enlarge with age and the result is increased sebum production. Sebum is the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands.

What are the signs and symptoms of Rosacea?

There are a number of symptoms and presentations of rosacea. There is redness and visible small blood vessels on the skin surface. The skin is oily and there is a history of acne. There are changes in skin texture, particularly regions of thickened glabrous (hairless and smooth) skin with enlarged pores. Skin becomes very sensitive. Rosacea can involve the surfaces of the eyes, eyelids and scalp (conjunctivitis, pustules and dandruff). There can also be greater incidence of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

What are the causes of Rosacea?

Rosacea has genetic causes and usually occurs in families of fair-skinned northern Europeans, Hormonal changes can usually cause flare ups of rosacea, especially above the age of 30 years and can affect women during the menopause. Life style factors that can trigger flare ups of rosacea include alcohol, spicy foods, hot temperatures, sun exposure and physical exertion.

What are the treatment options for oily skin in Rosacea?

Treatment of the sebaceous gland enlargement and hyperactivity will result in a reduction in sebum production, help improve inflammation of the skin and also help prevent future breakouts of papules, cysts and nodules. Treatment with Dermalux LED Phototherapy and oral Isotretinoin (for more aggressive treatment of severe cases) has been shown to be very effective.

Rejuvence Philosophy

At Rejuvence we always endeavour to provide evidence based treatment options for our clients that have been shown through clinical trials to yield positive results. We are here to listen to our clients. We acknowledge that our clients are the experts of their own face and skin. Together with our clients we aim to provide a bespoke service and tailor bespoke treatment programs that we are confident will provide positive results.

For effective improvement in skin sensitivity it is necessary to restore the skin barrier function using skin health restoration principles for correction and stabilisation. Treatment with ZO skin care regime or the Obagi Nu-Derm skin care program is very effective.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is the darkening of regions of the skin that are subject to inflammation due to acne or rosacea and leave behind scarring. Bleaching of these regions of discolouration is possible with the use of bleaching agents such as topical hydroquinone. The process of evening out skin tone can be achieved with a blending approach. This involves the use of a combination of hydroquinone and tretinoin.

Preparation of the skin using cleansers designed for oily skin followed by mechanical exfoliation with scrubbing once daily. Use of products containing benzoyl peroxide are necessary. Retinoids much as tretinoin or retinol can also have a positive influence on reducing sebum production. Alpha-hydroxy acids is effective for epidermal exfoliation and renewal.

For the improvement of skin texture and colour the use of chemical peels, after adequate skin preparation, as well as multiple sessions of Dermalux LED phototherapy have been shown to yield excellent results. In addition integration of tretinoin in any skin care program will usually provide good results.

Rozatrol from Zein Obagi is a specially designed normalising serum that has been developed to help with the redness that goes with Rosacea as well as help with problems of excess sebum and premature aging. It’s advanced formula helps reverse existing skin redness, while preventing future inflammation from ultraviolet radiation associated with sunlight. Rozatrol promotes optimal microcirculation to encourage a healthy blood supply to the skin and to restore a more radiant appearance. Triple-blend oil control complex helps guard against excessive oiliness. Antioxidant protection helps reduce inflammation and damage from daily sun damage. We highly recommend using Rozatrol from ZO for those suffering with stubborn Rosacea alongside regular Dermalux LED treatments.
