Rosacea is a disease caused by a violation of blood microcirculation, which occurs due to the expansion and fragility of small vessels of sensitive skin. If the skin is susceptible to external factors, it reacts to them with redness or inflammation. Owners of sensitive skin, which is a prerequisite for rosacea, often experience itching, burning, tingling of the skin with the slightest changes in air temperature, washing or touching.
The skin reaction in the form of uniform redness is most often manifested on the forehead, chin, nose and cheeks. Further development of rosacea leads to permanent redness caused by the expansion and fragility of blood vessels. Telangiectasia (dilation of small vessels) becomes so obvious that it is noticeable to others. The problem of rosacea is usually more familiar to women than men. Dark-skinned women are threatened by rosacea to a much lesser extent than owners of fair skin.
Rosacea, like any disease, can be associated with a genetic predisposition. To reduce the risk of this disease, it is necessary to avoid exposure to adverse factors that disrupt capillary blood flow and cause venous stagnation of blood.
If you have already encountered the problem of rosacea, do not despair. There are effective methods of treating this disease. Let's get acquainted first, what can be dangerous for rosacea.
If the signs of rosacea have already become your problem in the form of unwanted excessive blush, dry skin and noticeable vessels on the face, it is necessary to urgently apply medical measures. Recall that rosacea is a disease, and it needs to be treated. There is nothing more important for any woman than preserving the beauty and prolonging the youthfulness of the skin. Rosacea, with development, leads to aging of the skin, because it does not receive the necessary amount of nutrients and oxygen due to circulatory problems. The skin loses its healthy natural color, becomes pale, acquires a grayish hue.
Even the professional help of qualified cosmetologists can be nullified if you do not learn how to properly care for skin prone to rosacea. Here are some tips on how to do this.
The skin prone to rosacea, very thin and sensitive in structure, is susceptible to inflammatory processes. She requires increased attention and caring care not only at home, but also in beauty salons. The procedures carried out with rosacea are aimed at preventing the appearance of redness, irritation, and dryness of the skin.
With rosacea, the skin needs deep cleansing more than ever. But the skin cleansing procedure should be very delicate and gentle, and it can be carried out correctly only in a specialized beauty salon. It is categorically contraindicated in rosacea to conduct vaporization procedures (a kind of hardware steam baths), as well as peels carried out by mechanical and chemical methods. The exception is enzyme peeling using enzymes (biologically active substances, enzymes). It affects the skin very gently, loosening it and ensuring the penetration of medicinal preparations into deeper layers. To relieve inflammation in the conditions of a beauty salon, hardware irrigation with vapors of plant extracts – sage or lavender can be used.
Procedures aimed at nourishing the skin are carried out after its preliminary cleaning. Highly concentrated products containing active ingredients are applied to the skin of the face (with the exception of the eye area): vitamins (for example, fat-soluble vitamin K), skin moisturizing oils from grape seeds or mallow extract, multivitamin complexes (vitamins E, A, and K).
If rosacea is complicated by vascular rosacea (a combination of vascular skin lesions and pink acne), then such skin, as a rule, is thin and atrophic, prone to the early appearance of small facial wrinkles. The comprehensive care for her should include strengthening masks and sheets with collagen.
Most of the drugs and procedures aimed at strengthening blood vessels and increasing their tone have a symptomatic effect, i.e. reduces the visible manifestations of rosacea, but does not eliminate it at all. With significant manifestations of rosacea, measures for its treatment should be aimed at eradicating the causes of the disease. The basis of modern methods of treatment of rosacea is such an impact on the expanded capillary, which leads to its complete destruction and removal. At the same time, blood circulation in the vascular bed is not disturbed, since reserve capillaries are included in the bloodstream.
In modern cosmetology, the following methods of vascular correction are used for rosacea:
Even after carrying out any salon method of treatment of rosacea, the results obtained should be constantly supported by proper skin care at home. Regular intake of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) or ascorutin (vitamins C and P) will help to consolidate the result and take care of the prevention of relapses of rosacea.
