Rosacea can be a very debilitating condition that causes facial flushing, redness and unsightly small blood vessels (telangiectasia) to appear on the surface of the face, often causing great distress to the patient.
Rosacea Before and After
What causes Rosacea?
Unfortunately, the exact cause is not known but a number of factors are thought to be involved;
• Tiny blood vessels that become leaky (dilated) with time
• Sun damage
• Abnormal reactions involving the immune system in the skin, leading to inflammation
• Genes may play a role

At Skyn doctor in Huddersfield we can treat Rosacea effectively with our pain-free Dermalux LED Phototherapy RED 633nm and Near Infra-Red 830nm wavelengths reducing redness and inflammation whilst accelerating the healing process, leaving brighter fresher looking skin.
The tiny small vessels found on the skin surface can be treated successfully with our revolutionary Duetto MT Laser Machine, using the Nd YAG 1064nm wavelength or mixed technology mode to emit light which is absorbed by blood vessels, causing a heat reaction and destruction of the vessel.
