Rosacea is a painful skin condition that causes large red patches on the skin, accompanied by red pustules and boils. The boils resemble acne and leave behind deep scars. In severe cases, the condition starts at the nose or the cheeks and may spread across the rest of the face, neck, and body. Sadly, there is no permanent cure available for this condition. However, a simple treatment with the XEO® Skin Revitalization system can ease the discoloration and irritation associated with this condition.

What Causes Rosacea?

More often than not, rosacea shows up when a person’s immune system is altered in some way. Studies show that a peptide-protein called cathelicidin is responsible for the appearance of redness and skin bumps that characterize this condition. When a lot of this peptide is produced, the skin becomes inflamed and begins to develop enlarged vessels along with irritation. This immune response may be triggered by genetic factors, environmental factors, or a combination of both. Rosacea is a multi-factored condition and is therefore difficult to fully diagnose.

Symptoms of Rosacea

This skin condition can have mild or extremely severe symptoms. Common signs of rosacea include large red patches on the skin, a bumpy skin texture, enlarged pores, deep scarring, broken blood vessels, and the formation of acne and boils.
