Treat redness and inflammation with natural rosacea remedies
Rosacea sufferers can eliminate that flushed, red appearance with our private label skin care product line and our Equelage private label in office treatment at The Elizabeth Roche MD Med Spa.
A Natural Solution for Rocacea & Sensitive Skin
A two-step approach involving an easy skin care regimen that calms the inflammation and redness common to the condition is the at home component of the treatment. Using naturally-derived ingredients which soothes and calms facial inflammation is the first step to leaving your skin tone even and clear. In office light therapy and a gentle customizable “peels” are the second steps to beautiful skin.
The Simple At Home Regimen
Begin with our Calming Cleanser which is a foamy extra gentle cleanser that contains Evodiox, a powerful redness-reducing agent derived from the Chinese Evodia rutaecarpa plant.
The second product is our Clarifying Hydrator which is designed to restore the normal barrier function for sensitive, combination and blemish-prone rosacea skin. This anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial peptide moisturizer gently hydrates your sensitive skin, is 100% oil free, fragrance free and paraben free, and non-comedogenic.
Applying sun screen to protect from the environmental elements each day is an important part of reducing skin sensitivity. We recommend our Solar Eclipse Sheer for a light, purely physical defense from the sun.
In the evening cleanse again with the Calming Cleanser to rid your skin from the impurities it has accumulated throughout the day. Follow with our Sustenance serum to provide the nutrients your skin needs while it is resting at night. This serum contains Vitamins C and E along with Ferulic acid which enhances the vitamins’ activities. To restore the normal barrier function for combination and blemish-prone rosacea skin, Clarify Hydrator applied at night is an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial peptide moisturizer will gently hydrates your sensitive skin.
In Office Procedures
To excel the results of the home regimen, we recommend our Equelage peel.
Another in office treatment with amazing results are a series of our Photofacials. Photofacials, also known as IPL or BBL treatments, are intense-pulse or broad-band of light-waves which target small capillaries and vessels and reduce the appearance of vessels on the skin surface. Usually a series of 3 to 6 of these treatments are necessary for optimum results. There is little, if any, down time, just mild flushed appearance from the heat of the procedure which resolves in 30 to 60 minutes.
