Rosacea is a poorly understood skin condition which causes facial redness, as well as burning sensations, spots, skin hardening and visible blood vessels. Most sufferers experience flare-ups which reoccur over time. The condition is thought to be caused by a combination of things, including blood vessel abnormalities, and an allergy to certain bacteria that live naturally on the skin.
Recent research has shown, moreover, that the triggering of skin peptides - which are molecules within the skin - can aggravate the condition. This is because triggering of skin peptides can in turn trigger the skin's immune system, causing an immune response and excess redness.
Activators of peptides are thought to include UV light from the sun, spicy food, heat or cold, stress, alcohol (especially red wine) and strenuous exercise. The condition is more common in women (often aged between 30 and 50) than it is in men.
Unfortunately, the condition itself currently has no cure, but innovative treatment can help to drastically improve symptoms. Nova Clinic London aims to help those diagnosed with rosacea to manage their symptoms with the aid of pioneering skincare products and treatments.
