Using Dracula PRP therapy to treat Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea is a condition with a very misleading name, as acne rosacea has nothing to do with the regular acne. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, small and superficial dilated blood vessels on facial skin, papules, pustules, and swelling. It affects patients of all ages and if untreated, will worsen over time. Rosacea affects both men and women, but is almost three times more common in women and generally affects people between the ages of around 30 and 50.

Rosacea typically begins with redness on the central face, and across the cheeks, nose, or forehead. However it is also known to affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. In some case there can be semi-permanent redness, dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face, red domed papules (small bumps) and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations.

Generally rosacea treatment has consisted of topical and oral antibiotic agents or laser. While medications often produce a temporary remission of redness within a few weeks, the redness typically returns fairly soon after treatment is stopped, meaning that lifelong treatment is often necessary.

I have found that a number of my patients with rosacea find their symptoms are greatly improved with Dracula PRP Therapy. And because PRP only uses your own blood, there is no risk that the treatment causing the condition to flare up and become worse.

This patient is in her mid 30s and had tried many different treatments for her rosacea including creams, lasers, diet and lifestyle but had had no success. Her Rosacea was so bad she was at the stage where she always refused to have her face photographed. She had one session of PRP 6 months ago and is now stable with a normal skin ever since. As you can see from my before and after images, this is a truly impressive result.
