Topical Rosacea Treatments
About Rosacea Treatment
Anti-inflammatory and reparative skin care products containing high concentrations of antioxidants and free of all known allergens and irritants, such as paraben preservatives and sodium laureth sulphate, are important factors in optimal care.
For the mildest cases of rosacea, characterised by persistent redness and skin irritation only, treatment focuses on The Clinic's speciality rosacea skin care products. More resistant cases (see treatment revision) may require additional in-office topical, laser or light treatments. Medication is rarely prescribed in these instances. Effective treatment of mild rosacea reduces the likelihood of disease progression.
Rosacea characterised by pimples, papules and pustules, in addition to persistent redness, requires the treatment outlined above in addition to periodic or ongoing treatment with topical and/or oral medications.
