Finding a Rosacea-Friendly Spa

What is Rosacea?

Generally, it appears like a redness on the face. Rosacea is a medical skin condition that typically affects the central face in fair skinned women age 30-50 years old. It can present with flushing, redness, “broken capillaries” or dilated vessels, pustules or papules (red bumps that look like acne), skin irritation, a bulbous nose (enlarged red nose typically in men only) or a combination of symptoms. There are varying degrees of Rosacea so it may not always present in the same manner. It is one of the common conditions that we treat. Professional aestheticians will assess clients at Mediterranean Beauty Spa with vascular symptoms and help determine the optimal treatment plan.

What are the Treatment Options for Acne Rosacea at Spas?

There are various treatment options available and usually a combination of proper skin care products to calm the skin and a laser or light-based treatment to constrict the dilated vessels work best. Rosacea clients often have red, irritated skin and it tends to be dry and sensitive as well. A Skin Care Consult can Help to Determine the Right Products to calm the skin and improve the skin quality to augment other treatments.

Tips to Find Rosacea Facials Spa

Especially when under stress, a day of pampering at the salon or day spa can be a good way to relax and unwind. But if the itinerary includes a facial, it is important to take steps to ensure a positive experience.

Call ahead. Do a little research and find out if the salon or spa you are considering has licensed aestheticians who have worked with patients with skin conditions such as rosacea. If not, look for a different salon.

Talk before your treatment. Tell your facialist about your rosacea and any other medical conditions such as allergies, pregnancy, heart conditions and high or low blood pressure. Any of these may require adjustments in the care you receive.

Review your skin-care routine. Mention your own skin-care routine and the specific products that you use on your face. This may help guide your aesthetician in choosing a line of skin-care products that is least likely to aggravate your condition.

Avoid irritating ingredients. Ask for a list of ingredients for all products to be used during your facial so you can avoid anything that may cause irritation – such as alcohol, menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus, witch hazel or certain fragrances. When you’re going to receive a rosacea facial treatment, the best thing you can do is be informed about the products your provider is using and double check that they’re aware of your current skin status. 

Stay away from heat and peels. Refrain from such procedures as steaming your face, hot towels or hot wax treatments, which can stimulate flushing. Also avoid skin peels or exfoliating your skin with coarse cleansers, which may aggravate your condition.

Don’t forget your medical therapy. Consistent use of your medication may be essential to prevent or minimize any flare-up of rosacea symptoms that may be associated with your facial.


Once again this is a sensitive and crucial condition needs to be done with experts. Stripping the Face Microbiome is one of the factors, but knowing how to do effectively is very important. Many of these microorganisms living on your skin are actually beneficial and important for overall skin health!

That’s why it’s crucial to avoid harsh facial treatments and protect these good bacteria. Facials, harsh chemical cleansers, and peels all have potential to disrupt the balance of the skin microbiome while they are in use, in wrong ways. When good bacteria die off and bad bacteria start to overgrow, skin conditions like eczema, acne, and rosacea can worsen.

If providers of some centers don’t have experience working with rosacea-prone skin or attempt to use harsh skin care or ingredients on your face, opt out!
