Everything to know about procedures and skincare to decrease redness and irritation.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the face, causing redness, visible blood vessels and sometimes small, pus-filled bumps resembling acne. It typically develops gradually and may come and go in episodes of flare-ups and remissions. The exact cause of rosacea is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic predisposition, environmental factors and abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face. Some potential triggers to flare-ups include spicy foods, hot beverages, alcohol, extreme temperatures, stress and certain medical conditions.

While rosacea cannot be cured, its symptoms can be managed effectively with various treatment approaches including skincare and in-office procedures. With the right approach, symptoms can be minimized, allowing individuals to regain confidence in their skin. Managing rosacea-related redness often requires a multifaceted approach tailored to individual needs, some treatment options include:

1. Laser Therapy

Laser treatments such as DenaVe or 532nm Chrome can effectively target visible blood vessels and reduce facial redness. These non-invasive procedures work by selectively heating and destroying abnormal blood vessels while sparing surrounding tissue.

2. Facials

Certain facial treatments, such as gentle exfoliation and soothing masks, can help alleviate redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. It’s important to choose facials specifically formulated for sensitive skin and to avoid harsh or abrasive techniques that can exacerbate symptoms.

3. Niacinamide

Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a powerhouse ingredient with anti-inflammatory properties. Topical niacinamide cream such as our Hydrate Nia moisturizer can help reduce redness, soothe irritated skin, and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function.

4. Moisturizers

Hydrating the skin is crucial for individuals with rosacea, as dryness and irritation can worsen symptoms. Our Power of Three Cream contains gentle ingredients such as antioxidants and green tea to calm redness and restore hydration.

5. Retinol

While retinol is typically associated with anti-aging benefits, it can also be beneficial for managing rosacea-related redness. Topical retinol products such as our Retinol Luxe Serum can help promote cellular turnover, improve skin texture and reduce inflammation.
