Rosacea Treatment

naturopathic rosacea treatment

Rosacea is a common debilitating disorder that effects millions of Canadians today. From simple little "rosy cheeks" to severe full face rosacea, we have what you need to solve your skin issues. Untreated rosacea can lead to rhinophyma (an enlarged nose) and severely broken capillaries (telangiectasia) on the nose and cheeks, causing severe facial flushing and cosmetic concerns.

The physicians at Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care use clinical evidence and their experience to support all of the therapies we use to help you with your rosacea. We offer dietary advice, medications, natural therapies, and laser treatments to treat rosacea. However, first we will assess your skin type, listen to your concerns, analyze your skin, and only then will we begin treatment. We strive to remove the cause of your rosacea. Some common rosacea causing factors are:

Usually, our physicans begin with simple to follow medical dietary and skin care regiment changes. When diet changes are too difficult, we offer laboratory assessments to confirm our diagnosis, then we treat accordingly. What makes Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care unique in treating Rosacea is how we treat the digestive system as well as the skin itself. This is a very clinically effective way of treating rosacea. Even Dr. Oz has talked about treating the digestive system as a means of treating rosacea!

Our physicians may prescribe medications to help control and treat this condition from progressing. One of our signature Rosacea treatments is IPL facial skin rejuvenation therapy to minimize the redness of the skin. This treatment is a safe, simple, and cost effective means of controlling the skins health. Most people with rosacea require few therapies, a few laboratory investigations and a little patience as results sometimes require some time. We very much enjoy treating rosacea at Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care, and we typically see remarkable long lasting results.
