Often mistaken for adult acne, rosacea tends to begin after middle age and is most common in fair-skinned people. Although the condition is not life-threatening, even mild symptoms can seriously affect quality of life. In a National Rosacea Society survey, nearly 70% of rosacea patients said the condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41% said it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.
Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin condition that usually only affects the face and eyes. Characterized by redness, pimples, and broken blood vessels, rosacea tends to begin after middle age (between the ages of 30 and 60).
People who have rosacea usually experience periods of flare-ups and periods of remission (the decrease or disappearance of symptoms). Rosacea causes a range of symptoms that may include redness, swelling, visible blood vessels, bumps or pimple-like blemishes and skin thickening.
Symptoms may include:
- inflamed eyelids
- sensation of a foreign object in the eye
Skin conditions like acne scarring and excess pigmentation affect thousands of people in North America and though neither is particularly damaging to the physical health, both can have a huge impact on confidence and self-esteem.
Cutera Laser Genesis is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment which uses the very latest light technology to get rid of scars and reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation. It is suitable for all skin types, including dark skin.
After treatment, patients are left with even, smooth and healthy looking skin. The appearance of scars is dramatically improved as is the appearance of excessive skin pigmentation. Cutera laser genesis can also reduce pore size and smooth out rough skin. It is one of the most successful scar treatments available today and when combined with the skill of our practitioners, the results achieved are quite remarkable.
Depending on how quickly your skin heals, you may need to take a day or two off work. However, most people will be able to get back to normal activities straight away.
At Westside Medical & Aesthetics the treatments are carried out by a medical doctor and a staff with extensive experience in this field. We have successfully treated hundreds of patients with a variety of complex skin types and conditions. Also we are amongst some of very few in the Calgary with the experience and skills required to successfully treat patients with darker skin.
