Acne, rosacea, sensitive skin

Special skin need special care

Acne, rosacea and other forms of sensitive skin are good examples of how the dermatological and cosmetic team work together to reduce or alleviate symptoms. The aim of acne treatment is to reduce sebum production, normalise the keratinisation process, fight bacteria and control the inflammatory reaction. By combining medical-cosmetic treatments with products tailored to your skin condition, as well as a medically prescribed antibiotic treatment in severe cases, the skin condition can be significantly improved.
In rosacea, treatment is necessary to prevent the disease from worsening in episodes. Special medication can be prescribed by the medical team for this purpose. And with the right cosmetic applications and care, the symptoms can be significantly improved. After successful treatment of the disease, existing veins (telangectasias) can be removed with a vascular laser (KTP laser). In our practice, we have the KTP laser QuadroStarPROYELLOW at our disposal.

Procedure

In consultation with the doctor, you will receive a precise analysis and a tailor-made therapy plan, which contains various components depending on the form and stage of the disease, skin type, age and many other factors. In the case of acne, a professional cleansing, fruit acid peeling to dissolve the cornifications and, in severe cases, a medically prescribed antibiotic treatment are common components. HydraFacial as a non-invasive measure is an excellent treatment supplement. Topical antibiotics are recommended for rosacea, and oral antibiotics in severe cases. Experience shows that the combination of local and systemic therapy is particularly effective. In addition, a fruit acid or chemical peel can have a calming effect and veins can be removed by laser. HydraFacial as a non-invasive measure often provides good results in rosacea.

Questions on acne, rosacea, sensitive skin

Why does acne develop, what are the triggers?

At certain stages of life, hormone production changes in humans: e.g., during puberty, pregnancy, menopause. This stimulates the production of sebum. If it is difficult for the sebum to drain away, blackheads and pimples form, and the skin looks impure.
Environmental influences can also promote acne, as can stress and a wrong, unbalanced diet. In modern cosmetics, too, we find a variety of care products that can trigger acne if the skin type is right (acne cosmetica). Chlorine, iodine, tar or oil can trigger acne venenata, some medicines are the cause of acne medicamentosa.

What is rosacea or couperosis?

Rosacea is caused by an excessive immune response to the body’s own germs, especially demodex mites. Disturbances of balance occur, and an inflammatory process are the result. Rosacea is a very distressing disease and tends to occur in adulthood. Without treatment, the disease progresses, and redness, inflammation and small vascular dilatations form on the cheeks, forehead and chin. As it progresses, there is occasional swelling of the facial skin, as well as deep, inflammatory nodules.
This disease often starts between the ages of 25 and 40 and, if left untreated, usually worsens as it progresses. Some patients may have similarities to acne at first glance, but the causes of these two conditions are different. If acne manifests itself after puberty, rosacea should always be considered as well.

Is consultation with a doctor absolutely necessary?

If you do not yet have a comprehensive treatment plan, we recommend making an appointment with one of the dermatologists at our centre. This way, a potential drug therapy can be prescribed, laser treatment can be performed if necessary and complementary cosmetic treatment can be determined. If you already have a therapy plan or do not wish to be accompanied by a doctor, you can of course also make an appointment directly with our experienced cosmetic team.

Do I need special care?

Acne, rosacea and sensitive skin each require specific care. Our medical and cosmetic team will be happy to advise you on which products are specifically suitable for your skin type. A selection of excellent products is also available to try out in our medical centre and can be purchased directly.

What role does diet play?

Food can have a big impact on the skin. Milk and dairy products have a negative effect on the skin, especially in the case of acne. Sweets, alcohol and nicotine in excess should be avoided. This not only promotes acne but can be the cause of many other complaints. Ripe cheese, red wine and hot spices intensify the symptoms of rosacea.
You should also test how your skin reacts to different foods. To do this, consciously avoid individual foods from time to time and observe whether and how your skin changes as a result. We can also carry out special allergy tests in our centre and advise you on a diet tailored to your skin.
