Get To Know Your Skin: Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes blushing or flushing and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness.

Rosacea can affect anyone. But it's most common in middle-aged white women. There's no cure for rosacea, but treatment can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.

 Mild Signs of Rosacea

  • Facial blushing or flushing - Rosacea can cause a persistent blushing or flushing in the central part of your face. This sign of the condition may be difficult to see on brown and Black skin.
  • Visible veins - Small blood vessels of your nose and cheeks break and become visible (spider veins).


Sever signs of Rosacea (not suitable to treat with Skin Krush)

  • Swollen bumps - Many people with rosacea also develop pimples on their face that resemble acne. These bumps sometimes contain pus.
  • Burning sensation - The skin of the affected area may feel hot and tender.
  • Eye problems - Many people with rosacea also experience dry, irritated, swollen eyes and eyelids. This is known as ocular rosacea. In some people, the eye symptoms precede the skin symptoms.
  • Enlarged nose - Over time, rosacea can thicken the skin on the nose, causing the nose to appear bulbous (rhinophyma). This occurs more often in men than in women.


If you have been diagnosed with Rosacea please avoid using Microdermabrasion without professional advice.
