That rosy glow may be a sign of rosacea

Posted on 29 Sep, 2011

Do you flush easily and frequently? Blushing can be embarrassing at the best of times, but it may be worth monitoring your skin if it seems to be happening often. It is estimated that 10% of people suffer from rosacea and that it tends to be more common in fair-skinned people of north European descent. The figure is estimated, as many people live with rosacea without knowing that they have it at all.

The condition can cause spots, meaning that is often confused with acne, or the appearance of thread veins can be attributed to other causes. It would seem that more women develop rosacea than men, although men are more likely to suffer from more severe rosacea.

The condition seems to be triggered by various events, and usually makes its appearance in adulthood, between 30 and 60 years of age. Triggers are a personal affair, and if you suspect you may be suffering from rosacea, you will need to try and identify what sets it off. This will help you to manage the condition, which is chronic and causes repeat episodes.

One option is to consider rosacea treatment. AIPL can dramatically improve the appearance of skin that is persistently red by removing the veins that cause the redness.
