Flushed cheeks usually mean something positive—a cute blush when someone compliments your new outfit, or when a crush admits they like you back.
But that cuteness can quickly become a nightmare when the redness doesn’t go away and comes with thick skin and pustules. It’ll have you scrambling and looking for rosacea treatments in Cleveland. We know, that took a turn real quick.
Now, you can’t actually get rosacea from blushing too much, even though it typically manifests as redness in the cheeks. Unfortunately, there’s no cure for rosacea. Don’t fret! The experts at Radiant Divine Medical Spa specialize in developing customized treatment plans to help our patients manage their symptoms and enjoy clearer skin.
Rosacea Treatments at Radiant Divine
The way we treat your rosacea depends on the severity of your symptoms. We can combine different treatments to create a comprehensive plan perfectly tailored to the needs of your skin.
Stimulating collagen growth through microneedling is an effective way to clear away rosacea.
Collagen is a critical component of your skin’s structure and vitality. As we age, our collagen production slows down, which may be part of the reason rosacea becomes more apparent for those in their 30s and beyond.
The needles help clear away the damaged skin and make room for new, healthier skin cells.
The same things that make Aerolase a great laser treatment for acne make it an effective solution for rosacea symptoms. Plus, treatments with Aerolase don’t require any downtime or recovery, meaning you can get back right to your normal routine.
The Aerolase system gently resurfaces your skin to remove the rosacea and lessen its appearance.
CoolPeel delivers resurfacing power without the thermal damage typically associated with laser skin resurfacing. This means less pain, less downtime, and the same gorgeous results that you’d expect from more intense treatments.
CoolPeel targets the superficial layer of skin where rosacea is active and removes the damaged cells to reveal younger and healthier-looking skin.
For patients with rosacea that is less advanced, we typically recommend coming in regularly for a custom facial to help manage the symptoms. Of course, custom facial treatments work great in combination with some of our more aggressive treatments too.
Our skincare experts can tailor your facial treatment to your unique skin type, tone, and condition. You’ll be keeping your skin happy and healthy while preventing rosacea flare-ups.
Because there’s no cure for rosacea, managing your skin on a daily basis becomes a necessary habit. With medical-grade skincare products, it becomes that much easier. You can only get medical-grade skincare products from a licensed provider because the products have higher levels of active ingredients.
Benefits of Professional Rosacea Treatments in Cleveland
If you’re experiencing rosacea symptoms, it’s important to get professional treatment. When left untreated, rosacea can worsen and lead to other health issues.
Our skincare specialists can help you identify whether you’re dealing with rosacea or another condition. A professional diagnosis can also assess the severity of your rosacea and how far it’s progressed.
Custom Treatment Plan
Everyone’s skin is unique, and you deserve a treatment plan based on your needs. Getting a skincare consultation is the first step in building a plan that works for you.
Over-the-counter products often don’t have what it takes to handle rosacea. Visiting a skin clinic with medical-grade treatments and products can give you the power to take care of your skin.
What causes rosacea?
Unfortunately, scientists aren’t exactly sure what causes rosacea. Even though it can affect anyone, it’s typically seen as a problem that’s more common for women with fair skin between the ages of 30 and 50.
This doesn’t mean that men and people with dark skin can’t get rosacea! In fact, rosacea might often be misdiagnosed in those with darker skin tones because their skin masks redness. Men can get it, too, but it just seems to happen less often.
Factors that lead to rosacea:
- Genetics and family history of rosacea
- Acne-prone skin
- Skin that burns easily in the sun
If you suspect you have rosacea, it’s important to get it looked at and treated because the condition can worsen over time and is connected to other health issues.
How do I know if I have rosacea?
Rosacea usually affects the face. Occasionally, you might see symptoms on the neck or chest. But for the most part, rosacea likes to take center stage on the nose and cheeks.
Some common symptoms of rosacea are
- Facial blushing that doesn’t go away
- Visible veins
- Swollen bumps and pimples, similar to acne
- Burning or tenderness
- Eye problems
- Enlarged nose
- Rough skin texture
Of course, getting a professional opinion via a skincare consultation is the best way to know for sure if you have rosacea.
What can I expect when I book a rosacea treatment at Radiant Divine?
The first step in your treatment plan will be an in-depth consultation with one of our skincare experts. During this conversation, we’ll ask about your relevant medical history, discuss your symptoms, and examine your skin.
Then we’ll make treatment recommendations to help you manage your rosacea symptoms and answer any questions you have about your treatment plan.
We’ll design your treatment plan based on the severity of your rosacea symptoms. For milder cases, we may recommend microneedling and some at-home skincare products. More severe symptoms are likely to benefit from laser resurfacing.
While there’s no cure for rosacea, it’s possible to manage your symptoms so well you’ll forget you have it!
How to Get the Most Out of Your Rosacea Treatments
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to develop a regular skincare routine. As part of your consultation, our providers can recommend medical-grade skincare products to help manage your rosacea at home and in between your aesthetic treatments.
These three steps are the foundation of a healthy skincare routine:
1. Gentle Cleanser
Rosacea isn’t caused by poor skin hygiene, but cleansing your skin regularly is good for it. Using a gentle cleanser is important because rosacea makes your skin more sensitive.
Hydration is key to your skin’s health, our bodies are mostly water after all. Keeping your skin moisturized helps protect it and reduce inflammation.
Sun protection is the most important thing you can do for your skin. If you do nothing else, you should be rocking an SPF of at least 35 on the daily.
You can customize your routine with other serums and products based on your skin’s unique profile. Ask your aesthetician for some recommendations during your consultation!
Also, Avoid Your Triggers!
Rosacea flare-ups can be caused by a number of factors. Taking the time to figure out your specific triggers can help you manage your symptoms. Keeping a little diary or a note on your phone when you have a flare-up and possible causes is a great tool.
Common rosacea triggers:
- Hot foods and drinks
- Spicy foods
- Alcoholic drinks
- Extreme temperature changes (like hot showers)
- Over-exertion during exercise
- Allergies to skincare products
- Over-exfoliating the skin
- Sun exposure and burns
- Certain medications
