Rosacea Q & A
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes visible blood vessels and flushing of the skin. These skin changes often affect your nose and cheeks, although they can also occur on your forehead and chest.
Some forms of rosacea can lead to acne breakouts and thickening of the skin on your nose and cheeks as well.
What are the treatments for rosacea?
There’s no cure for rosacea currently, with treatment focused on preventing an outbreak. You may be advised to avoid rosacea triggers, such as spicy food or cold wind. Protecting your skin from the sun may also help prevent outbreaks, as can the use of gentle skincare products.
Dr. Dimowo is an aesthetic and regenerative medicine specialist who offers PRP and stem cell therapy as a treatment option for your rosacea.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the healing properties in your own blood to improve the look and health of your skin.
PRP contains a concentrated amount of the platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins that your body uses to heal an injury. When applied to your skin, they help reduce inflammation and repair tissue damage.
What is stem cell therapy?
Like PRP, stem cell therapy is also a type of regenerative medicine that supports healing from within.
Stem cells are the blank cells in your body that have the ability to transform into specialized cells, depending on your need. Stem cell therapy harnesses the healing power of stem cells by applying the cells directly to your diseased or damaged tissue.
Dr. Dimowo uses placenta and umbilical cord products obtained from cesarean section births for stem cell therapy.
How can regenerative medicine help my rosacea?
When applied to your inflamed and damaged skin, the healing properties in PRP and stem cell therapies accelerate your body’s natural healing process to reduce redness and inflammation, heal damaged tissue, and accelerate your skin’s production of new cells and tissue.
To get the most benefit from regenerative medicine, Dr. Dimowo may recommend more than one treatment.
