Rosacea and Micro Toxin (aka Botox)

What is Rosacea
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition most commonly seen on the face and has a number of subtypes. Often it presents as redness (erythema), dilated blood vessels, facial flushing and pustules. The cause for rosacea is multifocal but it is undisputable that the effects present socially, physiologically, and professionally.

Managing Rosacea includes knowing skin triggers, wearing SPF and potentially using prescriptive topical or oral medication.  LED masks and in office treatments, laser and light treatments may also be used successfully.

How Micro Toxin can help with Rosacea
The use of neuromodulators (Botox/Dysport) can help with Rosacea by relaxing the superficial hyperactive vessels of the skin. Highly diluted neuromodulator is administered superficially, where the blood vessels are located. Normally 10-12 units are injected per cheek and can be done as a form of Mesotherapy or AquaGold in isolation or in combination with other skin cocktails.

How long will it last?
The treatment is relatively quick and individual results vary but typically last from 3 to 6 months.

How many treatments will I need?
Once the toxin is metabolised, the treatment will need to be performed again.

Is there downtime?
You should be able to resume your daily life activities and downtime is minimal to none.
