Rosacea Treatment in Chelmsford

Rosacea is characterised by redness, flushing and visible blood vessels on the face.

Common Causes of Rosacea

Here is a list of potential causes of Rosacea:

Genetics: Research has shown that genetics may play a role in the development of Rosacea. Studies have found that individuals with a family history of Rosacea are more likely to develop the condition themselves. This suggests that there may be a genetic predisposition to Rosacea, although the exact genes involved have not yet been identified. 

Environmental Factors: Exposure to certain environmental triggers can aggravate Rosacea symptoms in those who already have the condition. These triggers vary from person to person, but common examples include sun exposure, wind, and extreme temperatures. These factors can cause blood vessels to dilate and lead to increased redness and flushing in the face.

Demodex Mites: Demodex mites are tiny organisms that naturally live on the skin of humans. In individuals with Rosacea, these mites may play a role in triggering inflammation and irritation in the skin. It is thought that people with Rosacea may have a higher number of these mites on their skin or have an abnormal immune response to them.

Abnormal Immune System Response: It is believed that Rosacea may be caused by an abnormal immune system response, where the body's natural defence mechanisms overreact to certain triggers. This can lead to inflammation and irritation in the skin, contributing to the development of Rosacea symptoms.

Medications and Topical Products: Certain medications and topical products, such as steroids, can trigger or worsen Rosacea symptoms in some individuals. This is known as drug-induced Rosacea and can occur even after short-term use of these medications. It is important for those with Rosacea to be mindful of their skincare and medication choices to prevent aggravating their symptoms.

Help with Rosacea

Charlotte Cole Skincare offers specialised consultations to help individuals identify the most effective treatments for Rosacea. During these consultations we will assess the individual's skin and ask about their specific symptoms, triggers, and medical history. This helps to determine the underlying cause of the Rosacea and tailor a treatment plan that addresses those factors.

The consultations also involve educating the individual on how to properly care for and manage their skin, as well as recommending suitable skincare products that are gentle and non-irritating for Rosacea-prone skin. Additionally, we may also suggest lifestyle changes, such as avoiding triggers and adopting a healthy diet, to help manage the condition.
