Rosacea skins tend to be dehydrated, even when there is acne and the skin feels oily. The best way to treat rosacea is by firstly reversing the cause of the dehydration.
- Diet and fluids to begin the anti-inflammatory effect.
- Building strength and immunity of the skin with (again) diet, but also with nourishing healing products and a personalised skin care regimen for you to enjoy at home.
- Regular clinical facial treatments, 2-4 weekly.

Rosacea Facial Treatments, when combined with appropriate at home products will boost the effect of these products and that has to make them worthwhile! A good clinician will create a facial procedure based on your individual skin’s needs on the day which means that if you are ultra sensitive or you feel very oily and have pimples, the effect of the facial to treat your dehydration will be the same.
There should be no nasty chemicals in your treatment ingredients, which should include lots of general antioxidants plus the most important stem cell and growth factor technologies.
- If the skin is very impaired your clinician will wait until your skin is stronger before adding Vitamin’s C and any A into your facial.
- If your skin is very reactive she might wait before adding in a Vitamin B as this increases the blood flow to the area, which is what we want, however initially this can really give you a good hot flush!
What is essential is some Lactic acid which is gentle to the surface of the skin, yet is still an effective cleanser and exfoliator. It also repairs cell walls which means you retain more water in your skin. Once this happens your skin hydration improves dramatically and then change can begin to happen!
We usually recommend 2-4 Medi-facials, Hydra-facials and/or Lactobotanical facials initially and then once the skin strength and hydration is relatively good, and you are tolerating a home Vitamin A serum, a series of Vitamin A infusions will reinvent your skin! All these facials will be tailored to an individual skin’s problems by the addition, or not of various powder blends.
Many skin’s also respond excellently to IPL treatments though best results are still achieved when IPL is combined with an at home regimen and regular skin reviews.
For all skin’s, though especially relevant for rosacea sufferers, remember that harsh scrubbing, harsh treatments such as microdermabrasion will not help, even if you do have thickened, acne covered areas. The problem is inflammation and as a consequence of that, dehydration. To effect change in your rosacea you must treat those first!
