It is not known what causes rosacea, but the latest theory is that there may be a link between the disorder and how often and how strongly people blush. Researchers have suggested that constant blushing eventually results in a blockage of the pores, which leads to spots. It is also thought that there is some effect on the collagen fibres in the skin that support the blood vessels. Normally, these fibres are in neat rows, like supportive scaffolding. But in many patients with rosacea, the fibres are crumbling and no longer provide support for the blood vessels under the skin surface. As a result, these blood vessels relax, get bigger and stay dilated. Because the vessels are only just under the skin, the blood makes the skin appear red.
A survey by the National Rosacea Society of 1,066 rosacea patients showed which factors affect the most people:

A special laser which can destroy tiny blood vessels is being used to treat rosacea - the chronic, progressive skin disorder which affects millions of men and women around the world.
The effect of the laser is to heat up the blood vessel and seal it - and it's gone. Although it is not quite painless - there can be a bit of a sting with each zap of the laser - it does clear up the redness. Sometimes more than one session is needed, but people notice a big difference even after the first session.
Patients’ response to laser therapy for rosacea depend on the symptoms severity. Some patients may require more than eight session-treatment. Most patients experience bruising, swelling and red or purple spots that fade in a couple of weeks ang with the skin tightening and pain.
As an in-office surgery, laser therapy for rosacea provides efficient improvement for blood vessels and thickening skin since the third treatment session.
