There are a number of tried and tested treatments for rosacea, over the years some (e.g. IPL) have been refined and are extremely effective when used by an experienced professional. A specialist clinic has now used IPL as the building block of a new highly effective treatment.
It is well known that under certain circumstances, a single drug to treat a condition (e.g. aids) becomes more effective when used in combination with other drugs. A cocktail of drugs can prove more effective than each of the drugs used on their own. Careful research and trials are necessary, simply combining two or more treatments that work may not make a new treatment that is more effective. It is even possible that the resulting treatment could be less effective.

Rosacea Treatments
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is recognised as being one of the best treatments for rosacea and is also very cost effective.
When treating Rosacea, it is important that any dietary contributions to the condition are recoqnised.
Some foods and drinks are found to be triggered, these need to be identified and avoided. In a study of over 3000 rosacea sufferers, the following were identified as triggers; wine, alcohol, hot coffee, cayenne pepper, chocolate, red pepper, hot tea, tomatoes, citrus fruits.

A New Rosacea Treatment
A specialist London clinic that has been at the forefront of IPL treatment for over a decade has developed a new combination treatment for both acne rosacea and rosacea. Impressive result (supported by case studies) have been obtained.
The new treatment can be described as a holistic approach that is comprised of various elements and tailored to each clients individual requirements. The clinic has dedicated specialists in each of the treatment areas:

1) Dietary Health Analysis, Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy
It is not unusual for a person suffering from rosacea, to have underlying digestive problems. A specialist ‘rosacea diet’ nutritionist has developed a comprehensive computer based questionnaire that helps identify any digestive issues’. The diet is then adjusted accordingly, replacing certain foods with others of the same nutritional value. An optimised diet helps reduce flushing and strengthen the walls of some of the small blood vessels causing redness.

2) All other factors based on their extensive experience and specialist knowledge are taken into account. An example is the importance of the impact of hair follicles on some types of acne rosacea. It has been found that there is a connection between hair follicles and acne, involving the sebaceous glands and the hair follicles to which they are connected; these are often found on the face, upper back and chest.

3) Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
This has a beneficial effect on inflammatory conditions, including rosacea, acne and acne rosacea. It works by stimulating lymphatic vessels and causing more effective drainage (they take away waste products), relieving fluid congestion; at the same time transporting substances to assist body defences. The methodology is by a gentle, rhythmic type of massage, incoporating various techniques (e.g specific pressure). Therefore MLD plays an important part in the new ‘combination treatment’ for rosacea and acne rosacea.

4) IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Nutritional Therapy
Clinics (e.g. PulseLightClinic) that have specialised in the use of Pulsed Light for many years have had consistently good results, the use of the new ‘combined treatments’ makes the treatment more efficient and effective and often reduces the treatment period and overall cost, benefitting both the clinic and the client.

If you suffer from rosacea or acne rosacea, then make enquires about treatments available from specialist clinics and compare them. A good clinic will be pleased to offer a free, comprehensive first consultation which should include or recommend a rosacea diet specialist. Every rosacea client is unique and every treatment program should be individually tailored, using more than just one specialist. Diet, triggers, lifestyle and other important factors should all taken into account when the specialists compile your rosacea treatment plan.
