Rosacea is a common skin condition in 5% of people. It typically begins after the age of 30 as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead may come and go. Over time, the redness tends to become ruddier or more persistent, and visible blood vessels may appear. Other forms take the appearance of acne with inflammation and pustules.

IPL, LASER and cosmeceutical topical care are now recognised by the medical profession as having a major role in the management of rosacea.
