Knowing which ingredients and products to use when recommending services and home care to clients with rosacea will help you feel confident in your treatments and the support you provide. Clients with rosacea will typically have hypersensitivity, visible vascularity with notable telangiectasia, chronic flushing of the skin, and, in some cases, papules and pustules. Rosacea is commonly treated with prescription topical vitamin A, antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines (including oral medications) to help with flare-ups and breakouts. Devices such as non- ablative lasers, vascular lasers, and intense pulsed light therapy are excellent treatment options for telangiectasia and persistent erythema. Some of these medications are contraindications for some esthetic services due to the increased photosensitivity and overall impairment of the acid mantle. A thorough consultation and skin analysis is important for client safety and to offer proper treatment options and home care recommendations.
