Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is a common skin condition which most often appears between the ages of 30 and 60 and is usually visible on the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. People with rosacea often find they suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed. Red veins and red flushing can be a cause of real concern and distress. Unfortunately, rosacea is a chronic condition however, with our medical-grade Lynton IPL treatment we can create a personalised treatment plan to help to get your rosacea under control.


There are a variety of triggers for rosacea. These include alcohol, exercise, high and low temperatures, hot drinks, spicy foods, stress and sun exposure. As there is no cure for rosacea, we will work closely with you to devise a personalised treatment plan to help combat and reduce the appearance of the rosacea.

Top Rosacea Facts:

Please note red vein/Rosacea or Laser Skin treatments are not suitable for anyone with a skin type of 4 or above this is due to the amount of melanin/pigment found naturally, there is a higher risk of adverse effects within the skin such as burning or hyperpigmentation

Facial Red Veins/Broken Capillaries

Facial red veins, spider veins or telangiectasia are tiny blood vessels (capillaries) which run close to the skin’s surface. They look like thin red or occasionally purple or blue threads that often occur around the nose, across the cheeks and chin. Red veins are caused by overexposure to the sun, drastic changes in weather, changes in pressure, excessive alcohol consumption, environmental irritants, rosacea, hormonal changes, or simply genetics.

At the Sussex Skin and Laser Clinic we offer a targeted solution to treating red veins depending on the type of vessel we may choose to treat with advanced medical-grade IPL or utilise Nd: YAG. Following a thorough consultation, we will choose the best technology for your treatment.

Campbell de Morgan Spots/ Blood Spots

Cherry Angiomas or Red Moles are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body. They're usually found on people aged 30 and older. The exact cause of these is unknown however genetics and pregnancy can be linked.

This type of skin growth is typically not a cause for concern unless it bleeds often or changes in size, shape or colour you should take to your GP if you notice any changes.

The treatment for these is so quick and effective often only needing 1-2 treatments. Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by the blood spot, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the blood quickly clears as it is reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
