Dispelling the Myths
Many people think rosacea is caused by excess consumption of alcohol. However, studies so that alcohol is not a primary cause of the condition; but rather an aggravating factor in some individuals.
What Causes Rosacea?
Genetic factors provide valuable insights into a person's likelihood of experiencing rosacea in their lifetime. Skin complexion (individuals with fairer skin are more susceptible) and a family history of rosacea are significant determinants.
The symptoms of rosacea can be exacerbated by exposure to UV rays. It is advisable to use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, both in summer and winter, to reduce flare-ups of the condition.
Upon the appearance of initial symptoms, it is crucial to be mindful of the products being used on your face products being used. To prevent worsening the situation, it's best to avoid cosmetics that contain perfume, alcohol, abrasives, or other irritating ingredients. Instead, opt for gentle products.
Various other factors can impact the onset or worsening of rosacea. These include exposure to extreme temperatures, strenuous physical activity, stress, drug usage (specifically, prescription Cortisone creams and topical acne treatments), as well as tobacco consumption.
Preventing Rosacea: Practical Tips
While there's no definitive way to prevent rosacea, managing triggers and adopting a gentle skincare routine can help minimize flare-ups and manage the condition effectively:
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to shield your skin from sun exposure, a common trigger for rosacea.
Identify and avoid triggers such as spicy foods, alcohol, and extreme weather conditions.
Opt for mild, non-abrasive cleansers and skincare products suitable for sensitive skin.
Incorporate stress-reducing techniques like yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to help manage rosacea symptoms.

What Are Our Patients Saying About It?
This was my first time having IPL and Claire was amazing from the moment I walked in the door. My nerves were eased as I knew I was in good hands. All through the procedure Claire spoke to me, so I knew what to expect, what was happening and gave great after care advice. The results exceeded my expectations and I’m already looking forward to my next visit - thank you Clinetix
I would like to say all staff have been professional and helpful. Claire in particular made me feel at ease during my IPL treatment by talking to me and reassuring me. The treatment flew by!
First treatment of IPL - not painful and can already see the benefits. Great treatment.
