Flushed, irritated skin and intense redness can all be signs of rosacea. If left untreated, it can worsen, resulting in the appearance of inflamed papules and pustules on the cheek and nose. Rosacea is often embarrassing and distressing for those struggling with it. If your skin redness is out of control, ADVATx treatments may be right for you.
What Causes Rosacea?
A protein called cathelicidin peptide appears to be the main factor contributing to rosacea. When the body produces too much of this specific protein, the skin becomes inflamed and develops enlarged vessels and irritation. Genetic, environmental, or a combination of both factors may trigger this protein production. Other factors can contribute to this issue’s development, making it hard to treat but not impossible.
ADVATx uses the latest non-ablative resurfacing technology, relying on heat to reduce rosacea instead of removing the top layer of skin. These treatments combine pure yellow and high-powered infrared laser energy to eliminate rosacea and undesired vascular abnormalities such as telangiectasia, hemangiomas and venous lakes, restoring your skin to a more youthful and healthy state.
