Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness, inflammation and lesions on the face. Spots or lesions that appear on the skin due to rosacea can be treated with procedures such as chemical peels and lasers. Below we tell you what the process is like.
Peeling and laser to treat rosacea spots
Chemical peeling to treat rosacea spots consists of applying a chemical solution to the skin that eliminates the superficial layers of the affected skin. This can reduce the appearance of spots and lesions and improve skin texture and tone.
The acids used in chemical peels are typically mild, such as glycolic acid or lactic acid, and are suited to the sensitive and delicate skin of rosacea sufferers.
Laser treatment to treat rosacea spots is performed by applying laser light to the affected skin. The laser can help reduce redness and inflammation of the skin, as well as improve the appearance of spots and lesions.
The type of laser used to treat rosacea is the pulsed dye laser (PDL), which can help shrink dilated blood vessels in the skin and improve texture and tone.
Both chemical peels and laser treatment can be effective in treating rosacea spots, but it is important that they are performed by someone professional like Dr. María Fernanda Benavides.
At Benavides Aesthetic Medicine we will also determine the best treatment for each individual case, depending on the severity and extent of the spots and lesions on the skin. Additionally, it is important to follow the recommendations after the procedure to maximize the results of the treatment.
How rosacea affects self-esteem
Rosacea can affect the self-esteem of people who suffer from it because it is a chronic disease that affects the physical appearance of the skin on the face. The symptoms of rosacea, such as redness, inflammation and skin lesions, can be perceived as unsightly and can lead a person to feel self-conscious, embarrassed and insecure.
Additionally, rosacea can be an unpredictable and fluctuating disease, which can make sufferers feel anxious and stressed due to constant worry about the appearance of their skin. In some cases, people with rosacea may avoid social situations or activities that make them uncomfortable.
It is important to note that rosacea is not a contagious disease and is not related to personal hygiene. However, stigma and lack of information about this disease can lead a person to feel ashamed or judged by others.
It is recommended that people who suffer from rosacea seek appropriate medical support and treatment to manage the symptoms of the disease and improve their quality of life. At Benavides Aesthetic Medicine we have treatments for this purpose. Contact us and receive more information.
