What is Rosacea or global redness and who does it affect?
This is a skin condition that usually causes a persistent redness in the central part of your face – nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks can swell and become visible as well. Many people who have rosacea also develop pimples on their face that resemble acne, however it is not associated with acne as many commonly believe.
It typically affects peoples aged between 30 – 60. It is more common amongst people of Celtic descent, although it can affect anyone. Typical causes range from genetics and environmental to vascular and inflammatory factors. Overall, it is part of the skin’s immune response that causes these symptoms.
Global redness can also effect any ethnicity, including European, Asian or Indian. This can be treated with laser, LED and a home care plan.
