The tendency to flush or blush more easily than others is a skin disease called rosacea. 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:
Papulopustular rosacea – Swelling, redness, and acne-like breakouts
Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea – Flushing, redness, and visible blood vessels
Phymatous rosacea – Thickened, bumpy skin
Ocular rosacea – The eyes become irritated and red, a sty-like bump can develop, and eyelids can become swollen
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. Your esthetician will hold a consultation with you to learn more about your specific case and which products your skin can tolerate before your rosacea facial begins. Our exfoliating facial product uses a gentle pumpkin defoliant to peel away dead skin cells and replenish your skin. The result is skin that is 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.
