Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes redness on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. At Nouveau Clinic, we can treat your rosacea and return your skin to its radiant self.
Symptoms of Rosacea
Besides redness, other symptoms of Rosacea include:
- Small red bumps
- Dry skin
- Soreness in and around the eyes
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important that you see a doctor. Without treatment, symptoms may worsen over time and can even become permanent. These symptoms can also affect your mood, leading you to experience periods of low self-esteem.
What Causes Rosacea?
Even to experts, it is still unclear what causes rosacea. What is known is that it typically develops in fair skin people or those who blush easily. It also seems to be hereditary. Rosacea often flares when something causes the blood vessels in the face to expand. Things that can cause flare ups include:
- Sun and wind exposure
- Hot or cold weather
- Spicy food
- Hot baths
While there is no cure for rosacea, it can be treated. At the Nouveau clinic, we use a 4-step therapy to treat rosacea.
Apply our glycolic & aloe foaming cleanser to clean out your pores.
Apply our clarifying moisturizer to soften the skin and prevent cracking.
Apply our azelaic and clay masque. Masques should be used once or twice a week, depending on your condition. They should also be immediately followed by an application of the clarifying moisturizer.
Apply our niacinamide serum. This can be applied day or night but needs to remain on the face for up to 8 hours.
With our 4-step therapy, you should hopefully see a reduction in your symptoms and make your rosacea more manageable. For more information, give us a call at 404-936-6931 or fill out our on-line contact form.
