Dealing with rosacea is difficult for many reasons. First, there is simply the embarrassment of having red spots on your face. Some individuals only experience spotted areas of rosacea patches on their skin, while others have their full face covered with rosacea.
It is not uncommon for individuals to ask rosacea sufferers if they are embarrassed or if they feel all right since they look flushed. It can become very difficult for a rosacea sufferer to constantly have to explain that they have a skin condition and that they are in a perfectly happy mood. It was not until someone asked them if they were embarrassed or did not feel well that they began to feel bad.
Rosacea is also difficult because it can be very hard to find a treatment for the problem. Individuals who suffer from rosacea go through flare-ups. These flare-ups can be related to tons of different things, including food allergies, heat, sun exposure, anxiety and much more. The thing that an individual needs to do is try to figure out what exactly their trigger is and then try to control their environment. However, some individuals feel so nervous about having a rosacea flare-up that they begin to have one simply because of the anxiety that is associated with it coming on.
Since this is a problem that affects an individual’s self-esteem and can cause a person to feel a lot of anxiety and stress, it is important for individuals to find effective treatment methods. One option that is effectively being used is the PicoFOCUS laser. In addition to helping individuals who have rosacea, this treatment is also great for wrinkles, pigmented lesions and acne scars.
The PicoFOCUS laser treatment uses a very short pulse. It goes beyond photothermal action and creates an intense photomechanical impact. This means that it disrupts the target, be it pigmented skin, rosacea or whatever skin issue a person is dealing with. The benefit of using this treatment is that you are able to get a more accurate treatment, and there is less risk of affecting surrounding skin tissue that is not being treated.
In order for you to find out if you are a candidate for PicoFOCUS laser treatment, you should schedule a consultation at Skin Deep Laser MD in Fort Worth.
