Rosacea is a condition that gives rise to redness, flushing and visible facial veins.
It is more common in females, and can be quite socially-disabling as very often the problem becomes much more noticeable with alcohol, spicy foods or coffee. Other factors that often play a part are sun exposure and temperature changes.
Rosacea is a difficult problem to treat with conventional medications, and usually when someone comes to see us they have already tried a variety of treatments to no avail. Our Gemini laser offers good results with lessening of redness and flushing and improvement in red veins that occurs over a series of treatments.
