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 sold in a doctor’s office is allowed to have higher percentages and higher concentrates of active ingredients than those sold outside of a physician’s facility. That means, when it comes to Rosacea, the skincare lines sold at Sovereign Skin will be safe and effective, with great therapeutic value for healing your rosacea and helping to 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 will be 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 these 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 one’s health. Antibiotic creams, lotions and gels are an option because they offer anti-inflammation benefits. Some acne treatments will also work if a patient suffers from papulopustular rosacea.
Some radiofrequency devices have been shown to also successfully be used on rosacea patients without causing a flare-up.
