There are more effective rosacea skincare items available from a physician’s office and medi-spas under a physician’s oversight than you will find at popular drugstores or makeup giants like Sephora.
This is because under Health Canada regulations, skincare products sold in a doctor’s office is allowed to have higher percentages and higher concentrates of active ingredients than skincare sold outside of a physician’s facility. That means that when it comes to rosacea, the skincare lines sold at Sovereign Skin are safe and effective, with great therapeutic value for healing your rosacea and helping get it under control. Many of the skincare products available have incorporated natural products known to help remedy rosacea (i.e. lavender, green tea, tea tree oil, chamomile). Using a gentle cleanser and avoiding chemical irritants are very helpful when trying to avoid a flare-up. Sunscreen with an SPF of 25 to SPF 50 is always recommended to protect the skin.
Other Options to Treat Rosacea:
There are prescription topical medications and oral antibiotics that can also be used to treat rosacea, but they are best discerned by a doctor, as this route is normally taken for more stubborn cases. Antibiotics should not be the first treatment option sought, since extended antibiotic use can be detrimental to your health. Antibiotic creams, lotions, and gels are an option, because they offer anti-inflammation benefits. Some acne treatments also work if a patient suffers from papulopustular rosacea.
Some radiofrequency devices have also been successfully used on rosacea patients without causing a flare-up.
