IN CLINIC PROTOCOLS
The most effective treatment for couperose is radio waves and high-frequency technology using a device known as the Lamprobe. It is minimally invasive, targets specific spots, and delivers optimal results, depending on the severity of the problem more than one session may be required. Other treatments including IV drip treatment and micro needling, using the Fusion VENISTEM ampoule both help strengthen tissue and improve the overall condition of the skin. More long-term couperose treatment using sclerotherapy is administered by a physician who is trained in Phlebology. This treatment consists of injecting a sclerosing agent into the vein to be treated. The dosage and strength are determined beforehand. This treatment lasts 20 minutes and requires no downtime.

THE PROBLEM:
Couperose is a type of Rosacea evident as chronic redness appearing on the face. It appears as small, dilated, winding, bright red blood vessels on the cheeks, around the nose, and sometimes on the chin. Often mistaken for an allergy or eczema, it usually affects the face on the cheeks nose, and chin, and is found predominantly in fair skin types. Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that most often affects the face. Rosacea worsens with time if left untreated. It is often mistaken for acne, eczema, or a skin allergy. Rosacea is episodic and can vary from one flare-up to the next.

THE SOLUTION:
Care should be taken so that skins with this condition are not exposed to excessively hot or cold water. Topical treatments and supplements can be used to help strengthen the capillary walls. It’s really important to build the skin internally to assist with prevention and cure. A combination of Omega 3 fish oils and Collagen helps build and strengthen the skin from within improving overall function and texture.

THE CAUSE:
The exact cause isn’t known, it may be hereditary or genetic, and there are a number of factors that contribute to the problem. It occurs primarily as a result of poor elasticity in the capillary wall, after the expansion of small blood vessels, when there is a sudden rush of blood because of blushing, excessive heat, or other stimuli, the capillaries expand, making room for the increase of blood.

LIFESTYLE TIPS:
Hot climates, hot water, nervous disorders, digestive disorders, saunas, an exercise that causes the face to turn very red, drinking very hot liquids, eating spicy foods, and blushing must be managed or avoided where possible. Use tepid to cool water on your skin, be very gentle when working the skin do not use any abrasive products, mild milky cleansers, SPF and soothing treatment creams are a must.
