Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that primarily affects the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. While early signs include intermittent redness or blushing, over time, the redness may become persistent and more visible. Occasionally rosacea may involve the eyes resulting in bloodshot eyes that feel gritty.
The Stratum Corneum is the outermost layer of our skin and is a protective barrier to the external environment. On top of the Stratum Corneum is a thin film of sebum and sweat that forms the acid mantle. The acid mantle is both a physical and chemical barrier that provides a crucial part of the skin’s defense mechanism and if it is disrupted makes the skin becomes more permeable to microorganisms (such as bacteria), harsh chemicals, and pollutants resulting in redness and inflammation.
The goal of treatment for Rosacea is to improve the natural protective function of the skin so that it becomes soft, soothed and restored.
I am really happy with the outcome! Many of my friends have complimented on how vibrant I look, before knowing I had any work done, so that made me feel confident again! My husband is all smiles. Can’t wait to see this extremely professional team again!
Wonderful first time experience with Botox, and the best results I could have hoped for!! I’m absolutely thrilled with my results and I wish I hadn’t waited so long.
I use to commute downtown Vancouver for all of my skincare and beauty needs until I discovered Skin Secrets. I’ve become a regular client and have since referred my friends/family too. It’s the best kept secret in Fort Langley!
