The role and responsibilities of a cosmetologist regarding prevention and treatment of rosacea

Rosacea, a long-term skin condition of various aetiologies affecting 2% of the population, predominantly
individuals aged 25-35 and 45-55 years, is a challenge for dermatologists and cosmetologists. The disease develops in the skin with seborrhoeic and vascular disorders.
The role of cosmetologists is to take accurate history data in accordance with professional ethics and to
cooperate with dermatologists, taking into account the individual needs of clients. Treatment and care of the affected skin depend on the clinical stage of rosacea.
Although the causes of rosacea have not been fully elucidated, there are many strategies to prevent the
disease or alleviate its symptoms. Rosacea patients should continually broaden their knowledge about skin`s needs, predisposing factors and prevention of lesions.
Care and treatment of the skin with rosacea is not easy and not always or instantly leads to satisfactory effects.
Treatments available in beauty parlours combined with home care according to appropriate cosmetological procedures should accelerate the recovery. New technologies currently used in dermatology and cosmetology enable effective therapy of rosacea. The management options include intense pulsed light (IPL), laser therapy and preventive measures, including education provided by cosmetologists.
