Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that can range from mild to severe. While individuals with mild rosacea may love the pink flush on their face, those who are affected by moderate to severe rosacea may find it disruptive to their life. People who have fair skin and who flushes easily are most affected by rosacea.

Treatments for Rosacea
Although rosacea cannot be totally cured, it can be controlled with proper treatments.
Depending on the severity of your rosacea, your doctor can recommend a suitable treatment for you. Lasers and IPL (Intensed Pulse Light) are two treatments that are most commonly used to reduce redness and improve your skin condition. It often requires more than one session to see visible results and results are often long lasting.
Do approach a trained medical expert to diagnose and carry out laser and IPL treatments for you. If done incorrectly, lasers and IPLs may cause burns, blisters, scars, and skin discolouration.
