Rosacea is a skin condition that effects mostly light-skinned adults between the age of 30 and 60. It is characterised by permanent redness, pimples and noticeable blood vessels, mainly in the central area of the face.
The cause of rosacea is unknown and there is no permanent cure. Some researchers and dermatologist believe that people that suffer from rosacea have a sensitivity to the Demodex folliulorum mite, a microscopic mite that inhabits the pores of the skin. Symptoms can often become worse with age but with a proper rosacea treatment plan and avoiding known triggers, we are able to improve the appearance of this condition.
