Rosacea is a chronic condition, characterised by noticeable facial redness. Spots or pimples can sometimes accompany this redness. It is typically a harmless cosmetic condition however sufferers can of course feel self-conscious and wish to treat and get under control. Rosacea primarily affects Caucasians of mainly north-western European descent and affects both sexes. Whilst the cause of rosacea is unknown and there is no cure as such, there are a number of treatment options that can help control the signs and the symptoms of the condition.-

I always had 'rosie checks' and was always being teased about it. I couldn’t believe it could be easily treated. I saw an improvement after the very 1st treatment and after my 5th, my 'rosie cheeks' where completely gone. I am very happy with the result and would have no problem recommending the treatment to anyone else.- River Medical patient on Rosacea treatment
