A common condition that we treat is rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic rash involving the central face that most often affects those aged 30 to 60. It may be recurrent or persistent and is characterised by its colour, red. The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, but the basic problem seems to involve dilation of the small blood vessels of the face. Suspected causes of rosacea include, but are not limited to, genetic factors (especially when combined with sun exposure), a mite sometimes found in hair follicles, and medications that cause blood vessels to widen.

HOW IT’S TREATED


Lasers produce high-intensity light that is thought to selectively heat blood vessels. The advantage of lasers may be the ability to target the blood vessel while leaving the surrounding tissue possibly undamaged. As a result, the risk of scarring may be low. Rosacea is currently not curable, but it might be controlled with appropriate treatment. There are some forms of rosacea that may be significantly cleared for long periods of time using laser, intense pulse light, photodynamic therapy, or topical tretinoin. Although still not considered a “cure,” some patients may experience long-lasting results. *Individual results may vary.

"This is a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Micro-fractional laser treatment given by Dr. Biro. I found it to be nearly painless during the treatment of about one hour or so and of course no pain at all with the healing process."

I've been seeing Dr. Andy for botox and facial treatments since 2011. As a person, he is very considerate and caring; capable of interesting, lively banter - a nice to know individual. As a professional, he is quite disciplined and knowledgeable. His clinical approach is cautious and discerning - using the most appropriate treatment of the many options and products offered by his practise. He does good work and I trust him. I do not look anything like a 60+ woman - I look 40-ish.... which is quite empowering.

Doc Andy is the best. Doesn't make you feel insignificant for wanting to look your best. The best part is he won't allow you to pump yourself up with more than you need like some will because its all about the money. You will have a great experience. The staff are friendly and super helpful. Book early. He's so popular here in Qualicum Beach it takes time to get into see him.

FAQ’S ABOUT ROSACEA

What is rosacea?

Rosacea (roz-ay-sha) is a very common red, acne-like benign skin condition that affects many people worldwide. As of 2010, rosacea is estimated to affect at least 16 million people in the United States alone and approximately 45 million worldwide. Most people with rosacea are Caucasian and have fair skin. The main symptoms of rosacea include red or pink patches, visible tiny broken blood vessels, small red bumps, red cysts, and pink or irritated eyes. Most people with the disease may not even know they have rosacea or that it is a diagnosable and treatable condition. Many people who have rosacea may just assume they blush or flush easily or are just very sun sensitive.

Rosacea is considered a chronic (long-term), non-curable skin condition with periodic ups and downs. The redness in rosacea, often aggravated by flushing, may cause small blood vessels in the face to enlarge (dilate) and become more visible through the skin. Continual or repeated episodes of flushing and blushing may promote inflammation, causing small red bumps that often resemble teenage acne. In fact, rosacea can frequently be mistaken for common acne.

What are risk factors for rosacea?

Rosacea risk factors include fair skin, English, Irish or Scottish heritage, easy blushing, and a positive family history.

Is rosacea contagious?

No. There is no evidence that rosacea can be spread by contact with the skin or through inhalation.

What are the signs and symptoms of rosacea?

Typical signs and symptoms of rosacea include facial flushing, blushing, redness, burning, red bumps, and small cysts. The symptoms tend to come and go. The skin may be clear for weeks, months, or years and then erupt again. Rosacea tends to evolve in stages and typically causes inflammation of the skin of the face, particularly the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.
