An Introduction to Rosacea 

Rosacea is a complex, varied and progressive inflammatory skin disorder distinct from Acne or "Sensitive Skin".

Rosacea is Progressive

In the beginning, rosacea produces symptoms of frequent, lasting flushing and skin irritation.

Left untreated, rosacea may worsen and produce a broad spectrum of clinical signs: coarse skin texture, papules and pustules, and more permanent facial damage in the form of broken capillaries, scarring, hyperplasia and rhinophyma.

Facial Redness

(Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea)

Rosacea sufferers typically experience flushing and persistent facial redness. Small blood vessels may become visible in some individuals, and stinging, burning, swelling and roughness or scaling may occur. A common approach is to remove capillaries with IPL. While this does provide temporary relief, it does not address the underlying problem.

Bumps and Pimples

(Papulopustular Rosacea)

In addition to persistant redness, bumps (papules) and/or pimples (pustules) are common for many rosacea sufferers. Some individuals may also experience raised red patches known as plaques.

Often referred to as "acne rosacea", papules and pustules are superimposed on a background of telangiectasias (capillaries) and general erythema. It differs from acne vulgaris in that it lacks comedones.

Individuals with acne rosacea tend to blush easily, which tends to exacerbate the severity of the condition. Common triggers include, alcohol, sunlight, spicy foods and hot beverages. 

Typical Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea patients are frequently embarrassed to seek help, or feel that their condition is simply cosmedic and unworthy of treatment.

Standard medical regimens (metronidazole/azelaic acid/sulfacetamide and oral antibiotics) are poorly adhered to and are associated with negative side effects. Topical drugs may lessen symptoms, but deteriorate other aspects of skin quality.

Poorly informed consultants (or "skin professionals") have served to confuse clients regarding available treatment options, or continue to make recommendations firmly grounded in marketing, rather than science. A serious issue considering effective, early treatment is vital.

The current climate has resulted in rosacea patients seeking a quick and easy cure. It is important to remain compliant and consistant with any treatment protocol, for best results.

In some instances, overly aggressive treatments may lead to a worsening of the condition, or creation of additional symptoms such as spider veins.

With so many choices and an overwhelming amount of available information how can one decide which products are suitable and will provide the desired result? Problems with many of the options available, led us to also develop our own active rosacea product line.  

The glow rescue skin Rx rosacea line was developed after years of searching for solutions and finding very few effective and safe options for those suffering with this condition. Many of our clients had experienced the "standard" protocol offered through either their family physician or other medical provider. This generally led to a prescription for an antibiotic or cortisone cream. While the antibiotic may destroy bacteria responsible for some skin irritation, it may lead to bacterial resistance which is not desirable, and the underlying condition still remains. Cortisone creams, while calming inflammation, may compromise the quality of the skin and leave it worse off than before. For some, IPL treatments may offer relief, although our preference is to offer these as a treatment of last resort to clear visible capillaries that have occurred due to vascular damage from chronic inflammation.

There is a better way........

The rosacea rescue product line is formulated from only the purest active ingredients on the market. We have been treating rosacea for over 20 years, with experience treating clientele using both clinical procedures as well as at home product, and have found these products extremely effective at providing relief.
