The symptoms of rosacea can vary from person to person, but it often looks like flushing or blushing in the face, thickened skin, small blood vessels, watery eyes and red bumps that range from minor to severe with pus forming beneath the surface.
This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness. Nose, forehead and cheeks are usually the most affected areas. Rosacea is not medically harmful and cannot be “cured”, but is a visual burden for some people and is often difficult to control, making the sufferers feel self-conscious about their skin, lowering their general confidence and affecting their self-esteem to the point of avoiding social and public interactions. In such cases, opting for a laser treatment can help manage and reduce the condition by gently treating it with light energy. Although makeup can be a quick temporary fix, the excessive application can actually increase the severity.
