*DISCLAIMER Patient experience and results may vary. These are dependent on a number of factors such as lifestyle, age and medical history.
At the Skin Nurse Clinic we treat many patients male and female with acne rosacea and/or rosacea. This is quite a common condition in Ireland with different levels, from 1 to 5. Five being the worse with angry acne pustules to mild rosacea where the patient skin-colour can just appear red at times.
The Skin Nurse (Nicola O’Byrne) likes to compare rosacea to a 2 pronged fork.
- Prong 1 is broken red vessels which usually accompany rosacea patients
- Prong 2 is the actual rosacea itself (the red flushing).
- Understanding that you are dealing with 2 different issues under the same umbrella condition is important.
