How skin treatments work

Whilst we do not believe there are permanent skin treatments for rosacea, we do feel a combination of treatments can manage the skin condition including collagen induction therapy or IPL.


Collagen Induction Therapy (or skin / micro needling) treats Rosacea or redness by using a needling pen to create small perforations or micro channels in the skin. These channels stimulate collagen tissue production due to the healing response of the deeper skin layers, strengthening and thickening the skin. This makes the skin more resistant to the triggers that cause redness associated with Rosacea. A course of three is recommended for optimal results.


IPL Skin Rejuvenation uses high energy light waves to treat the dilated blood vessels in the affected areas of the face to keep redness and inflammation under control.
