People with rosacea flush easily and can develop redness, pimples and thread veins on their cheeks nose and forehead. It usually starts in the second or third decade of life, it affects about 10% of adults.

“My wife has visited the Derma Clinic a number of times in the past and advised me to get some advice on a small issue I had with redness on my face.

As a man, I felt a bit uncomfortable going to what I thought would be a very female orientated environment but I was so wrong. The redness on my face was around my nose and I was not sure what I could do to reduce it.

The ladies in the Derma Clinic where so informative and professional as well as friendly I might add. The procedure took about 10 minutes and I could see and feel an improvement the next day. All in all, I had 3 sessions over a two month period and could not be happier with the result or the service and would recommend the Derma Clinic to anyone”.


Because Rosacea affects the face it can cause significant psychological problems. The unpredictable flushes can cause a lot of embarrassment and anxiety. Flushing is exacerbated by hot spicy foods, alcohol, sunlight, extreme environmental heat or cold, and certain cosmetics. The active flare ups when spots break out are best treated with antibiotic creams or tablets.

IPL lasers are used to treat the redness and broken veins. A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent handpiece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
