Overview

Rosacea is a common condition with 1 out of every 10 UK adults suffering from it. Rosacea has a similar appearance to acne that typically affects the face, resulting in redness, swelling, spots and superficial dilated blood vessels. But Rosacea can be treated at MediZen with a tailored plan just for you.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease of the face. It is not known what exactly causes Rosacea but common factors involve malfunctioning of the facial blood vessels, sun damage, genetics and abnormal immune reactions. Due to its similar appearance to acne, it is often misdiagnosed and simply categorised as having a poor complexion. However, if left untreated Rosacea can lead to dry, flaky and uneven skin, which may sting and or lead to tightness which can be aggravated by sensitivity to heat, alcohol, spicy food, stress and hormones.
