Don’t Be Shy, Say Goodbye To Blushing With These Rosacea Remedies
You wake up the morning of a big day; the perfect outfit is laid out along with the choice of accessories. Now, it’s time for skincare and makeup. You look in the mirror and with a gasp to see that your skin has acted up in a red rage. Ice, foundation, color corrector…what will you do?! As it turns out, a lot of factors can result in rosy cheeks, and we’re not talking about your favorite blush palette. In order to triumph over red skin, you first need to get to the root of the cause. Rosacea is a common skin condition that produces blushing and flushing, usually on the face. Other symptoms can include visibly red blood vessels and small, pus-filled bumps. Often lasting weeks or even months, flare-ups come and then go for periods of time, meaning it’s hard to predict these unwanted visitors. Luckily, Haute Beauty expert Dr. Kimberly N. Mascia is here to help with expert knowledge on SpaGo MedSpa’s rosacea-combatting offerings.

NeoSkin Aerolase Laser
The NeoSkin method uses 650-microsecond laser energy that targets melanin, hemoglobin, and water in the skin giving results that address the symptoms of rosacea as well as other imperfections like texture enlarged pores, and laxity. Known to clear brown pigment, heal vascular lesions, increase collagen, and reduce inflammation, the treatment is also lauded for its efficiency and safety for all skin types. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
Laser rejuvenation systems can be tailored to alleviate a number of specific skincare scenarios, meaning a single IPL treatment can address the pigmentation, redness, and pronounced vessels characteristic of rosacea. For the most comprehensive results, SpaGo’s Three For Me™ laser treatment adds one or two fractional laser modalities to this initial round, producing tightened skin, reduced lines, suppressed scars, and better texture.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
RF Microneedling is a powerful tool used to combat rosacea. It can be used to reduce visible vessels (due to the coagulating properties of radiofrequency) and restructure scars and dermal changes that are visible following years of chronic inflammation.

This customizable three-step facial boasts a host of benefits for those with rosacea, including improved skin tone, texture, pigmentation, and more. First, gentle exfoliation reveals a fresh layer of skin. Then, painless suction cleanses pores, and nourishing moisturizers are applied. Lastly, a cocktail of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides seal results and protect the skin for maximum glow. The best part: it only takes 30 minutes!
There are many new topical treatments that can be used to effectively reduce additional damage and diminish the symptoms associated with rosacea. Dr. Mascia recommends various topical treatments but is particularly fond of a number of products offered by SkinCeuticals. She typicallly recommends reducing the impact of flushing with a botanical mask that also serves as a skin barrier, adding an antioxidant to protect the skin from environmental damage, and adding an additional barrier such as Redness Relief with or without HydraBalm or Epidermal Repair to reduce dryness and improve cellular connectivity. Everyone is different and treatment needs to be adjusted accordingly. For more information, visit Dr. Kimberly N. Mascia's social media or visit Haute Beauty.
