Skin Concerns

Rosacea

Rosacea is often more common in women, however, when this affects men it can be more severe. It may manifest itself as persistent redness, spots, visible blood vessels and/or thickened skin, resembling a similar appearance to Acne, however the two shouldn’t be confused.

Rosacea is often more common in women, however, when this affects men it can be more severe. It may manifest itself as persistent redness, spots, visible blood vessels and/or thickened skin, resembling a similar appearance to Acne, however the two shouldn’t be confused.

It is not completely known what causes Rosacea, although some studies have suggested it might be caused by triggered by certain factors that cause the blood vessels in the face to enlarge. Certain triggers that are known to contribute to making Rosacea worse are alcohol, exercise, high and low temperatures and stress. Rosacea can also be very sun sensitive.

There are four main symptoms of Rosacea:

  • Redness: persistent flushing of the face, often around the nose and cheeks.
  • Thread veins: visible blood vessels that do not disappear.
  • Papules, pustules and spots: round red bumps which may be filled with pus or fluid.
  • Thickening of the skin: excess, bumpy tissue, especially around the nose. This only occurs in the most serious, long-standing cases of rosacea and almost never affects female sufferers.

As rosacea is a chronic condition and there is no known cure, the best way to help prevent regular flare-ups is to try and identify your triggers and avoid these where possible. Keep a food diary and a make a note of which products you use on your skin; avoid sun exposure and try to limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol.

Royal Mayfair Medical Facial 

There are a number of skin peels at London Skin, designed to brighten and refresh the skin. The treatment involves applying a non-toxic chemical to the surface of the skin to encourage cell turnover and exfoliation. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant and rosacea is improved.  

Hyde Park Hyaluronic Facial 

Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most important components of skin. Our bodies production slows down in our mid-twenties and therefore it is important to replenish the skin through the correct treatments and homecare products. Our Hyde Park Facial consist of a fine sheet of freeze dried collagen or infused hyaluronic acid moistened into the contours of the face. This process reactivates the ingredients which then absorb deep into the epidermis. The oxygen concentrator is used to increase absorption.
