Why the HydraFacial is the Perfect Treatment for Rosacea

Tag Archives: rosacea

With April being Rosacea Awareness Month, we thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight the condition and explore an effective treatment option for it.

So, what is rosacea exactly? Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face. Symptoms can range from pimples, lines, and visible blood vessels to dry skin with persistent redness. While there is no cure for the condition, the HydraFacial is a popular option for our patients with rosacea.

As a facial treatment, the HydraFacial helps to gently soothe, moisturize, and comfort the skin. All of which are ideal for those dealing with rosacea. And the Deluxe HydraFacial in particular takes it all to the next level! Offering all the benefits of the basic HydraFacial, the Deluxe includes a booster that is specifically customized for the patient’s skin and LED light therapy that helps to reduce any redness or inflammation. Results are seen immediately after treatment and in some cases can last up to four weeks!
