Rosacea and Redness

Redness in the skin is a common condition that can appear with or without acne-like bumps, and may arise for unknown reasons. Undesired redness in the skin may cause self-consciousness, or the desire to apply more makeup in an attempt to cover up the uneven tone. Excessive makeup may clog the pores and result in additional breakouts and redness.

Sometimes, redness in the skin is caused by a condition known as Rosacea. Rosacea does not resolve itself, and if left untreated, it will worsen over time. It is a chronic condition that affects many ethnicities. Unlike acne, over-the-counter products often do not treat Rosacea and may end up irritating the skin, causing the condition to worsen.

Lucere understands the importance of feeling confident in your skin. As the leading dermatology, laser, and cosmetic clinic in Edmonton, we are proud to offer an array of corrective treatments to effectively treat Rosacea and redness.
