It may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily and progress to persistent redness in the centre of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. It may also involve the ears, chest and back.
Some people experience facial redness, inflammation, burning or warm tingly sensations. As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on or around the reddened area; however, unlike acne, there are no blackheads. Some patients suffer from inflamed pustules or spots.
Rosacea is primarily a disorder of the facial blood vessels that undergo changes and become hyper-responsive to internal and external triggers such as sun exposure, heat, rich foods, caffeine and alcohol.
Traditional treatments for Rosacea include topical and oral anti-inflammatory and antibiotic medications.
At the Resolve Clinic we can treat Rosacea using the Laser. The vascular structures which are responsible for causing Rosacea respond to the light that is emitted via the laser. The laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within these vessels. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function or the vessel. Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight. This leads to reduction of the redness and flushing appearance of facial skin.
Treatment takes approx 15 to 30 minutes and is typically performed at six weekly intervals. Clients may require several initial treatments and then return annually for treatment of new blood vessels. Our team of highly trained professionals will create a skin rejuvenation program for you.
The procedure is non-invasive and pain free. Many people describe the procedure as a flick of an elastic band.
All skin types can be treated with the IPL machine except black skin type. For this skin type a natural skin peel maybe recommended for skin rejuvenation. Please enquire for more details.
This is to check your skin suitability and to ensure there are no adverse reactions to the treatment. A period of 2 - 5 days must be left between this and commencement of treatment. Not all clients will require a test patch and this will be assessed within the consultation.

Instant Vascular results with our latest Radio Frequency technology!
Radio frequency treatments safely and effectively treat many different conditions such as Rosacea, Melasma, Thread Veins, Cherry Hemangiomas, Milia, Acne, Skin Tags, Sebaceous Hyperplasia, Frown Lines, Cholesterol Deposits, Pigmentation etc.
All the different conditions vary on how they respond to the treatment. Thread veins respond instantly but it may take several sessions to get all of them. With our treatment you are not going into the deeper layers of skin to remove tissue. You are simply touching the epidermis and allowing the current to attract to the water in the milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, cherry hemangioma or acne.
This dehydrates the problem area causing the body (over a few days) to exfoliate the dried skin. The down time is minimal and the treatment can be permanent. (please look at laser treatments for more information on some conditions).
What the client feels during the treatment is a slight heat sensation - depending on their pain tolerance. However sometimes we apply an OTC (over-the-counter) topical anaesthetic (depending on the area) before the treatment... (not to anaesthetise but to desensitise the area). It takes about 10-15 minutes to work.
