Rosacea is a common skin disease that often starts with a tendency to flush or blush more easily than others. This redness can spread from the nose and cheeks to the chin and forehead. Rosacea can cause a burning sensation of the skin. With rosacea, even the chest, back, and ears can be red all the time. There are four subtypes of rosacea:
Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea – Flushing, redness, and visible blood vessels
Papulopustular rosacea – Swelling, redness, and acne-like breakouts
Phymatous rosacea – Thickened, bumpy skin
Ocular rosacea – The eyes become irritated and red, eyelids can become swollen, and a sty-like bump can develop
There is no known cure for rosacea. If you have rosacea, our estheticians recommend that you visit Alessandra Farra Skin Care to find symptom relief. A rosacea facial in Pleasant Grove, Utah, is performed to calm irritation, soothe, and protect your skin from future outbreaks. Before your rosacea facial begins, your esthetician will hold a consultation with you to learn more about your specific case and which products your skin can tolerate. Our exfoliating facial product uses a gentle pumpkin defoliant to peel away dead skin cells and replenish your skin. Afterwards, your skin will be soft and hydrated. Stress is often a contributing factor to rosacea, so our mild, relaxing rosacea treatment can help manage things in the long run.
