Microneedling a real option for treating rosacea

skin health May 11, 2022

How do you know if you even have rosacea?

Rosacea is often confused with acne however there are some key signs and symptoms to watch for:

  • Warm blushing/flushing. Flushing that appears like you are blushing. Primarily across the cheeks and nose area of the face.
  • Spider veins. Tiny blood vessels on the cheek area.
  • White heads. Developing small swollen pimples is a common symptom of rosacea, they often look like small white heads.
  • Stinging/burning. The skin becomes sensitive due to the rosacea which often leads to a stinging and burning sensation.
  • Enlarged nose. Rosacea, over time, can cause the skin to thicken on the nose making the nose look larger.

Rosacea is a common skin condition and can effect anyone but it is most common in middle-aged women.  

There is no known cause for rosacea however it could be heredity, environmental factors, food sensitivities, hormonal changes or a combination of these. Rosacea can suddenly flare and last for months and disappear as quickly as it appears.

Things to that may cause flares:

  • Dried fruit
  • Alcohol and red wine
  • Hot drinks and spicy foods
  • Hot yoga and extreme temperature
  • Sun or wind
  • Emotions
  • Exercise
  • Harsh skincare products

 Microneedling to the rescue

Though there is no cure to rosacea microneedling can effectively minimize the appearance of rosacea symptoms by increasing blood flow and faster cell turnover leading to:

  • Stronger skin barrier
  • Healthier, younger skin
  • Overall improvement in the tone and texture of your skin
  • Reduction in redness and smoother skin
