Rosacea Treatments Sheffield and Chesterfield

Spring may be just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean that colder weather is gone for good. Rosacea can be difficult to manage in colder weather as dry, cold air can trigger flare-ups, redness and flushing, which can be uncomfortable if you already struggle to manage rosacea on a daily basis.

Here are a few things you can do to minimise flare-ups and maintain beautiful, healthy skin, whatever the season.

Cover-up

When heading outdoors, protect your face from the elements by wearing a soft scarf or a face mask made of cotton or silk. This will help protect your skin from the worst of the weather and reduce the risk of a flare-up.

Moisturise

Cooler weather is likely to make your skin feel dry, tight and even itchy. Choose a fragrance-free moisturiser, ideally tailored for sensitive skin, to help maintain moisturise and support your natural skin barrier. Just don’t overdo it, as too much product can have a detrimental effect.

Stay hydrated

Your skin is likely to be drier in the winter and one of the best ways to maintain moisture levels is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and make sure your environment isn’t too drying. A humidifier can be really helpful. If you’re struggling to drink enough water as it is, consider replacing a coffee or a tea with a small glass of water.

Use SPF

This is an important tip regardless of your skin type, but even more important for those of us with rosacea. UV light is one of the biggest triggers for the condition and can damage your skin, leading to further redness and irritation. Pick a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

Consider a Rosacea Treatment

Exfoliation is an effective tool to manage rosacea and if it continues to be a problem in colder weather, you might consider a dermabrasion treatment. Dermabrasion is a skin-resurfacing procedure that can help remove damaged skin and help you feel brighter, as well as improve the appearance of rosacea.

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that can cause redness and irritation across your face, including small, red and uncomfortable pus-filled bumps. Sometimes blood vessels are also visible under the skin. For some people, these symptoms last for a few weeks. For others, they can be around for months. It is very common in women, although men can still get Rosacea too.

Can I use a chemical peel for Rosacea?

Many look to aesthetic treatments to resolve their Rosacea problems. Chemical peels have been found to reduce the appearance of redness and any acne-type bumps. They do this through exfoliating the top layer of skin, which then becomes replaced by healthier, new skin cells.

Usually, chemical peels are performed at two to three-week intervals for a trained practitioner, and it is recommended that you use a daily glycolic wash or cream in between.

What do I need to consider when getting a chemical peel with Rosacea?

Rosacea makes the skin very irritated and uncomfortable. As such, you need to make sure you are getting a chemical peel done that works well with sensitive skin. It is also important that you follow any aftercare that has been recommended by your practitioner. Everyone’s skin type is different, so you will need a solution that is customised to your skin. Some people with Rosacea can suffer from dry and flaky skin, while others could have normal or oily skin, or even a combination.

What products can I use after a chemical peel with Rosacea?

It is always recommended that you use a daily glycolic wash or cream in between your treatments. Afterwards, you may also wish to use products that are soothing on the skin. Look for products that offer restorative or repairing qualities, as well as soothing results for sensitive skin.

However, it all comes down to your skin type. If you have very dry skin, you may benefit from a soothing facial oil at night to replenish your skin with moisture as it forms all the new skin cells after your chemical peel. However, this wouldn’t suit an oily complexion.

Facial peels - Newark, Nottingham, Chesterfield - Medskin ClinicEverything you need to know about medical-grade facial peels

Here at Medskin, we offer a variety of medical-grade facial peels – also known as chemical peels – that can be tailored to the needs of your skin. Whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or get rid of remaining acne scarring, chemical peels are one of the most successful solutions.

What do chemical peels do?

Our chemical skin peels are created from a range of acids, dependent on the particular treatment peel needed, and they work to remove the dead skin cells that linger on the surface of the skin. The result is a rejuvenated, healthy glow for your skin.

Can you only use Chemical peels for your face?

No – these chemical peels can be used on different areas of the body to combat numerous skin conditions or dull areas. For example, we offer peels for the following areas:

– Face
– Shoulders
– Back
– Chest
– Buttocks

Our chemical peels are extremely effective for removing any scarring or hardened skin and can even be used to improve skin pigmentation that can occur on the body.

What are the benefits of Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels can be used to treat various conditions, but the central benefit is creating smoother, healthier and brighter skin. For acne scarring treatments, there are immediate results from the first peel, and for blemishes and wrinkle treatments, there is a significant reduction in lines and age spots.

Chemical peels also improve the success of skincare products. The ingredients in the peels successfully break down dead skin cells on the surface of the face, leaving the skin fresh, bright and glowing.

We would recommend multiple skin peels in some cases to maximise the efficiency and success of your skin treatment.
