Rosacea Has No Cure, But We Have Treatments

Rosacea is not dangerous, but it can certainly be frustrating. Fortunately, RefinedMD offers a number of treatments that address facial redness, as well as special skin cleansing and toning products specifically designed to soothe rosacea flare-ups. Knowing your triggers and the right products for your skin are paramount to minimizing flare-ups, which makes establishing a strong relationship with your dermatologist key.

Did you know that glycolic acid and retinoid products can make rosacea much worse—yet they are common ingredients in many products for the face? They are especially common in acne products, and it’s not uncommon for clients to have both acne and rosacea. This doesn’t mean you have to choose which skin condition to suffer through. Creating a customized treatment plan for rosacea or any other skin concern is certainly possible with a highly-skilled dermatologist on your side.

Medical-grade skin products like Epionce Milky Lotion Cleanser and Medical Barrier Cream often work wonderfully for rosacea clients, and are available in our clinic. Skin with rosacea flare-ups is generally sensitive and requires gentle topical products. Combining routine skin care with the right laser skin therapy can give you a double whammy of prevention.

Summer is peak season for rosacea flare-ups, particularly because of all that sun exposure. Sun is one of the most common rosacea triggers, so it’s important to keep skin covered and protected as best you can. Wearing loose clothing can help safeguard skin, while also being gentle if you do experience a flare-up. Sunscreen is a must for anyone, but especially for those who suffer consequences from being in direct exposure to the sun’s rays. That’s why it’s important to try to avoid peak sunlight hours between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., and adopt wide-brimmed hats and large sunglasses as your new go-to look. You can even bring the parasol back into style.
