Treatment for rosacea

Rosacea is characterised by red or pink patches that appear on the skin, with sufferers also experiencing facial flushing, blushing and burning. Commonly experienced on the nose, forehead and cheeks, the condition has no known causes but is thought to relate to the dilation of small blood vessels in the face.

At Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic, we offer a number of options for rosacea treatment in Melbourne, including glycolic peels and laser treatment for rosacea.

Lactic acid peels

Helping to control and improve rosacea in some people, lactic acid chemical peels offer an effective treatment for rosacea, with a peel recommended every 2 to 4 weeks for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. While these peels can achieve great results, they may cause irritation to those with sensitive skin. Our staff will consult with you to determine your suitability.

Laser skin rejuvenation

Rosacea treatment with laser involves the use of an intense pulsed light that’s absorbed into the skin and breaks down dilated capillaries which in turn reduces skin inflammation and redness. It also stimulates production of collagen helping improve skin tone and texture. Four to six Rosacea laser treatment sessions are typically required at 3 to 4 week intervals for the best results.
