Rosacea can affect people of all ages, and people with fair-skin tend to be more at risk. The condition appears as redness, pimples, and broken blood vessels. It is characterised by flushing, red bumps, dilated, visible capillaries and oily, acne-prone areas.
Doctors do not know the exact cause of rosacea, but believe that the condition may be hereditary. Some researchers believe that rosacea is a disorder where blood vessels dilate too easily, resulting in flushing and redness. Consequently it is believed that people who blush frequently may be more likely to develop rosacea.
Advanced laser technology now has the capability of significantly improving the redness and flushing caused by rosacea.
