Expertly manage your rosacea redness at our renowned skincare treatment clinic in the heart of Liverpool.

Rosacea is an emotionally draining journey. A prisoner in your own skin, you’re trapped in a never-ending cycle of unsightly facial redness, flushing, and red bumps. Chances are you’ve tried countless other treatments, and nothing has worked.

This chronic skin condition currently has no cure. Flare-ups will likely become a part of your life. But don’t worry just yet…there’s good news. Rosacea symptoms can be easily managed with the correct treatment. Here at Smileworks, we have a range of powerful skin treatments that are proven to get rid of rosacea. Beautiful, rosacea-free skin is not only possible; it’s achievable.


rosacea before and after

what is rosacea?

Rosacea is marked by intense facial redness and acne-like bumps. Symptoms will come and go at random, lasting for weeks or even months at a time. The cause of rosacea is unknown. However, if it runs in your family, you are more likely to develop the condition.

Very rarely does rosacea occur in childhood. It will typically first appear in your 30s or 40s and is more common in those with fair skin and light eyes. While women are more likely than men to develop the condition, men tend to experience more severe symptoms.

how to get rid of rosacea

While it’s not possible to permanently get rid of rosacea, there are a few different options for managing rosacea symptoms. At Smileworks, we are proud to offer three different treatments for this skin condition that produce dramatic and life-changing results.

Which treatment you receive entirely depends on the severity of your rosacea. We recommend booking a consultation with one of our incredible skincare specialists, and they can help you choose the most effective treatment option.

Milder forms of rosacea can be treated with medical-grade skincare. Topical creams and serums could what makes all of the difference in your rosacea symptoms. Our aesthetic practitioners can prescribe products you won’t be able to find over-the-counter. If you suspect this is the right treatment for you, book your consultation with one of our aesthetic practitioners.

chemical peels

chemical peels

Mild peels like a mandelic peel can be a very effective option for controlling rosacea redness. Routine gentle chemical peels can help manage flare ups and reduce inflammation. However, it’s best to stay away from more intense peels if you have rosacea as this could make it worse or trigger a flare up. Starting at £50.

laser treatment

At Smileworks, we consider laser the best treatment option. We use the Aerolase Neo laser to treat rosacea. This non-ablative laser is proven to manage your rosacea symptoms. The best part? It’s completely painless and has no downtime.  Starting at £200.

types of rosacea

There are four main types of rosacea, each with their own symptoms and severities. Some types are more treatable than others. It’s also possible to have more than one type at once. Remember that rosacea looks different from person to person, so your symptoms may look different than another's.

ETR rosacea

erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR)

The most common type of rosacea is characterised by persistent facial redness and enlarged blood vessels. If you have this type, you’ll experience flare ups where symptoms come and go at random. This type can be treated with laser treatment or chemical peels.

Papulopustular Rosacea

papulopustular rosacea

This type of rosacea is defined by its pus-filled pimples that form on the face. It is commonly called acne rosacea because of its resemblance to acne breakouts. This type can also be treated with laser treatment or chemical peels.

Phymatous Rosacea

phymatous rosacea

Your skin will swell and thicken with this type of rosacea, usually on or around the nose (rhinophyma). The surface of the skin will look bumpy and uneven. At Smileworks, we are unable to treat this type of rosacea as it usually requires surgery.

Ocular Rosacea

ocular rosacea

When rosacea becomes severe, it can irritate your eyes and cause them to look bloodshot and watery. With this type, your eyes will become sensitive to light, and you’re more prone to developing styes. Smileworks unfortunately cannot treat this type of rosacea, and we recommend consulting an optometrist.

Gain the benefit of living your life without worry for your skin or other people’s judgements. You’ll have your confidence back the moment you see your even, smooth skin tone.

how to prevent rosacea

Since rosacea is a chronic skin condition, this means there is no cure. If you have rosacea, it will come back. However, there are some ways you can minimise the risk of it returning. Possible triggers to avoid include:

Sun exposure

Exposure to hot or cold temperatures



Spicy food

Skincare, make-up, or hair products

Hormonal changes (pregnancy, menstrual cycle, menopause, etc.)

Eating foods with cinnamaldehyde (cinnamon, chocolate, tomatoes, citrus)

Hot drinks such as coffee or tea

Remember that not all of these triggers will apply to you. You may have no problem eating spicy food, but too much sun exposure is a trigger. None of these triggers are the root cause of rosacea, but they can worsen or trigger a flare-up.

The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, but research suggests it’s a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Possible causes include blood vessel abnormalities, immune or nervous system issues, skin mites, bacterial infections, and even protein malfunctioning. It is possible that rosacea might also be an autoimmune disorder, but research is still ongoing.

The primary symptoms of rosacea include persistent facial redness resembling a blush or sunburn and small, red acne-like bumps. Visible blood vessels are also possible, and these look like thin, red lines on the skin. In severe cases of rosacea, skin thickening and a bulbous nose can occur.

While there is no cure for rosacea, there are treatments available that can relieve symptoms and prevent them from worsening. The primary treatment options include oral and topical medication, skin treatments like laser or chemical peels, and in extreme cases, surgical procedures.

You may experience itchiness with rosacea. This may also be accompanied by a feeling of burning or stinging.

If left untreated, rosacea will get worse with time. This is especially true in men, who are more likely to delay treatment.

Rosacea is only considered dangerous when you let it become severe. When you delay treatment for too long, your chances of developing ocular rosacea increase. This can lead to vision loss. Otherwise, mild to moderate forms of rosacea generally pose no threat to your health besides skin discomfort.

While acne and rosacea can look similar, they are two different conditions. One way to tell the difference is whiteheads and blackheads are only present with acne. Any redness associated with acne is restricted to the area around the blemish.

With rosacea, whiteheads and blackheads are not present. Rosacea will also have more widespread redness across the face. Additionally, rosacea is limited to the face and neck, while acne can occur anywhere on your body.
