What causes rosacea?
The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown but the condition can be triggered by a number of factors, such as:
- Exposure to extreme hot and cold temperatures
- Hot drinks, alcohol and caffeine
- Stress or strenuous exercise
- Spicy foods
- Some prescription medications
- Exposure to sunlight
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.
