Rosacea is a common but poorly understood skin condition that affects the facial area, causing flushing, redness, sensitivity and sometimes spots. On average, rosacea affects 1 in 10 men and women, mostly those with fair skin. At Nuriss, we offer expert Visia assessment to identify rosacea symptoms and triggers, plus a range of treatment options including advanced laser therapy, which can treat rosacea without the need for surgery.
As rosacea is a recurring condition for which there is no cure, Nuriss offers a range of treatments individually tailored to your needs in the comfort of our London clinic. This specially designed treatment program will identify the factors that can trigger rosacea, control symptoms and minimise the condition. Our highly-trained skin experts will first conduct a Visia skin analysis to assess your skin condition and will recommend the best course of treatments for you. As thread veins are a common rosacea symptom, laser therapy will often be advised. During the treatment sessions, which take 20 to 30 minutes, controlled light beams will be aimed at the blood vessels to help shrink and collapse them, allowing the body to absorb them without any damage to the surrounding skin. A course of multiple treatments spaced 4 weeks apart may be required for permanent results. This is a painless, non-surgical procedure, which requires zero downtime.
At Nuriss Skincare and Wellness Centre, we offer the best non-surgical treatments for rosacea causes and symptoms, so you don’t have to live with the inconvenience of this often unsightly condition. For affordable prices, our expert skin therapists can offer you the most advanced treatments currently available in the comfort of our central London clinic. Treatments are non-invasive, painless, take little time and require zero downtime afterwards. Prices start from £300 and consultations are 100% confidential. The total cost of the treatment program will be discussed and confirmed during your consultation.
Nuriss offers unique dermatologically advanced chemical peels that are tailored to suit individual issues, including acne. The peels work by removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in clearer skin. Our Alpha Beta Renewal Peel is specifically designed for acne prone skin. Its powerful ingredients include Glycolic acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic acid, which work together to deeply penetrate the skin, addressing acne at its core.
Acne Clear Laser Therapy
Nuriss Advanced Acne Blue Light Laser Therapy uses an AFT laser system that sends intense blue wavelengths of light into the skin to destroy P. acnes bacteria, which is the bacteria that causes acne breakouts. It is the most effective acne clearing treatment currently available and we use the latest and most advanced laser technology. This treatment option can work three times faster than topical creams and antibiotics to clear acne when performed by Nuriss professional laser therapists. The treatment is non-invasive and only uses light to treat acne. Our equipment has built-in cooling technology and we apply a cooling gel to the treatment area before each session, meaning it is a painless procedure and patients can go about their day as normal afterwards. Your therapist will most likely advise a course of around 4 treatments over a 4 to 8 week period for best results.
This non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment works by exfoliating the skin using micro-crystals to unclog the pores and encourage healthy skin cell growth. Nuriss professional microdermabrasion treatments are suitable for all skin types and can produce visible results after just one treatment, although a course of sessions may be required for optimal results.
All our rosacea treatment options are suitable for both men and women and are safe and effective.
Rosacea generally occurs on people with fair skin, but we do see patients with other skin tones types who also suffer with this condition. Our rosacea treatments are safe, effective and suitable for all skin types and tones.
No. There is no down time required after your rosacea laser therapy session. It is a safe, painless and non-surgical procedure, which needs no anaesthesia so you can continue with your day’s activities directly after your treatment session.
Most likely, yes. Depending on the type of treatment, your skin condition and rosacea symptoms, some kind of home care treatments may be involved. This could consist of medication or a topical cream to be applied to the treatment area. Your skin therapist will advise you fully on this during your initial consultation and after your treatment session.
Patients can expect to see some swelling and pink or red skin around the treatment area following each session. However, this is mild and perfectly normal and should subside within 24 to 48 hours. You may be advised to protect your skin with some broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF30 or higher.
Rosacea treatments start from £300, however, treatment costs vary depending on each patient’s rosacea and the course of treatments required. At Nuriss, we offer an expert range of treatments for rosacea at very competitive prices. Your skin therapist will outline a full treatment program tailored to your individual needs and prices will be confirmed during your initial consultation at our London clinic.
The number of treatment sessions required varies from patient to patient, depending on the kind of treatment required, your skin condition, and the kind of rosacea symptoms you suffer from. All of this will be taken into account and discussed during your initial consultation with one of our expert skincare therapists.
All Nuriss skin therapists are trained to the highest industry standards so you can rest assured you are in good hands. Your therapist will explain the treatment to you in-depth, ensure your comfort and safety throughout the experience and will answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
Patients can expect to see visible results after just one treatment. However, for optimal results, a number of sessions will be required. Your expert skincare therapist will advise you on how many sessions are needed during your initial consultation at our London clinic.
A medical skin peel, or chemical peel, as it is more commonly known, is used to remove one or more layers of skin and is a recommended treatment for many other skin conditions, such as acne. These peels remove dead skin cells, encouraging collagen and elastin production which promotes the growth of new skin cells. Depending on your type of rosacea symptoms, this may or may not be recommended as a course of treatment for you. This will be discussed with you as an option during your initial consultation at Nuriss.
When you attend our London clinic for your initial consultation, a full medical history will be taken by one of our expert skincare therapists. This will include asking about any medication you may currently be taking, which will be taken into consideration when devising a treatment plan for you so any medication-based rosacea treatment prescribed will not interfere with any existing medication.
As symptoms of rosacea vary from one person to another, the courses of treatment are also varied. Identifying and managing triggers, medication in the form of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, medical skin peel treatments, laser therapy and home care products are among the range of available options. Your Nuriss skin therapist will usually recommend a treatment program involving a combination of some of these treatments depending on your symptoms and skin condition.
No. There is no actual cure for rosacea as yet but research into finding a cure is ongoing. Instead, current treatments focus on managing the condition and removing visible signs and symptoms of rosacea.
Seeing a doctor or skin specialist is the best way to find out if you have rosacea and rule out any other skin conditions or disorders. If you have not already been diagnosed, our expert skincare specialists can carry out an in-depth skin analysis and confirm if you have rosacea. It may be that you are suffering from pityriasis rosea, which is a harmless condition, mostly occurring between the ages of 10 and 35 and is usually an allergic reaction to something.
The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown but the condition can be triggered by a number of factors, such as:
As part of your treatment, these triggers will be identified by your skincare therapist, who will carry out a Visia skin assessment at your initial consultation. Advice on avoiding these triggers will be offered to help you manage the condition and avoid flare-ups.
Rosacea can manifest with a variety of symptoms. It often first appears as overly red cheeks on the face but can also manifest in the form of red blotches, a red rash, pimples, enlarged blood vessels or thread veins. Rosacea can also occur in other areas of the body such as the neck, chest, ears and scalp. The most common symptoms of rosacea are:
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that mostly affects the facial area and generally occurs in men and women between the ages of 30 and 55. Rosacea symptoms vary from one patient to another and often occur in flare-ups with periods of remission between episodes.

Many people can experience mild rosacea symptoms without ever even realising they have the condition.
