Rosacea, as anyone who suffers from it knows, can be challenging to deal with. There are a variety of treatments that claim to be the cure for Rosacea, but it is disheartening when a patient tries them and it does nothing for their skin condition. The truth is there is no cure for Rosacea.
Micro needling is unfortunately not a treatment for Rosacea. Although some have seen some improvements while receiving Micro needling treatments for other imperfections these are minimal and are not seen generally with rosacea patients.
Micro needling also known as collagen induction therapy uses a series of controlled micro-injuries via tiny punctures into the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen and elastin reproduction. Generally Micro needling is used to target and treat skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars.
Rosacea causes redness and visible blood vessels, and as a result the skin can be sensitive. Following a Micro needling treatment, patients will experience redness, and a sunburn feeling over the skin, those who suffer from rosacea may experience these effects for a longer period of time.
If a patient has active acne rosacea, they should not have Micro needling sessions as it will irritate and can make the acne rosacea worse.
During a skin consultation, our practitioner will examine and evaluate the severity of the rosacea, and recommend which treatments are suitable for your skin condition.
