Rosacea treatment may take many forms from prevention to direct action. Sadly many people suffer unnecessarily for years. In early stages sufferers are often unaware that the problem is treatable, and may not seek help until the symptoms are pronounced and personally distressing. Fortunately modern techniques such as OPT Laser can reverse much of the damage caused by excessive blood flow, whilst knowledge of triggers can control the condition over time.
Many people use both topical and oral antibiotics which may be effective in treating the mild cases of rosacea. In more severe cases anti-biotics such as Metronidazole are prescribed to help decrease spot formation. However, it is only minimally effective on facial redness and rarely affects the broken blood vessels or flushing aspects of rosacea which is the main concern of our clients with rosacea. In order to be effective, antibiotic treatment must be sustained. Whilst being treated, personal triggers must continue to be avoided.
