Combatting Chronic Redness
A delicate blush to the cheeks is never a bad thing when one is shy or embarrassed by a neatly turned compliment, or even a delicate tinting of the skin thanks to a subtle application of blusher. It is, in fact, rather attractive. But when it is a burning bright red which will just not go away, that is a totally different matter.
If you are suffering from unrelenting chronic redness you probably have one of four very different conditions – psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or rosacea. It is advisable not to diagnose yourself but rather visit your doctor first.
If you have rosacea or sensitised skin, the pHformula chronic redness skin resurfacing treatments not only ease the skin condition, but can reverse it and, at the same time, regenerate your skin. pHformula’s advanced treatment-focused, result-orientated skin resurfacing system specifically designed for rosacea or chronic redness achieves the same deep-skin healings as medical treatments, but without the side-effects.
What are the symptoms of rosacea?
Rosacea is common in adults and is often hereditary. It reveals itself as red, tiny dilated blood vessels. As the inflammation increases pus-filled bumps, pimples and swelling may also appear. Rosacea commonly affects the central third of the face, especially the nose, and its intensity varies over time. While there are different sub-types of rosacea, erythematotelangiectatic type rosacea (ETR) is the most common. It looks like, and is often known as adult acne, which is hardly surprising as it is characterised by:
• Persistent redness or flushing of the central third of the face including the nose and cheeks. It can also affect the chin.
• Visible broken blood vessels
• Swollen skin
• Sensitive skin
• Stinging and burning skin
• Dry, rough and scaly skin
