Rosacea

Rosacea is a condition where redness appears due to the presence of:

small, dilated red blood vessels visible on the face. Rosacea occurs due to poor elasticity of the capillary walls. Normally, when there is a sudden rush of blood to the skin, capillaries expand to receive the increase of blood, then contract and return to normal. In a weakened state of elasticity, however, capillaries will expand, but do not contract and return to their normal state. This results in dilated capillaries with lingering blood cells, making them appear defined and red on the skin’s surface.

Rosacea is often caused by certain hereditary factors: skin that is structurally thin and sensitive, and weak capillary walls. Exposure to extreme cold, harsh winds or extreme heat can also contribute to this condition. All skin types can be prone to redness, the only factor they have in common is structural thinness. Often structural changes in aging skin can contribute to rosacea.

Especially people of North-Western European origin with a relatively light skin type can experience an increase in the blood vessels.

These self-care practices may help you control the signs and symptoms of rosacea and prevent flare-ups:

  • Identify and avoid triggers. Pay attention to what tends to cause flare-ups for you and avoid those triggers.
  • Protect your face. Apply sunscreen daily. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen — which blocks both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays — with an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply sunscreen after you apply any topical medication you are using for your face, and before applying any cosmetics.Take other steps to protect your skin, such as wearing a hat and avoiding the midday sun. In cold, windy weather, wear a scarf or ski mask.
  • Treat your skin gently. Don’t rub or touch your face too much. Use a nonsoap cleanser and moisturize frequently. Avoid products that contain alcohol or other skin irritants.
  • Reduce visible redness with makeup. Some makeup products and techniques may help reduce the appearance of skin redness. Try powder cosmetics with a green tone and matte finish.

F Care Systems offers the EVRF that can make sure the rosacea minimizes or disappears.
The EVRF works on the principle of thermocoagulation. This method uses a high-frequency impulse to create an immediate and local temperature rise at the exact position of the vein that needs to be treated.
