We are the Premier Cosmetic Clinic and Medical Spa of the Kitchener Waterloo Region.
We all want clear, beautiful, blemish-free skin. Some patient’s suffer from Rosacea, which is a common disorder that can affect patients of all ages.
Rosacea can have a wide variety of skin symptoms: redness, papules, pustules, facial flushing, telangiectasias (capillary prominence), burning and stinging, swelling, and skin dryness. Rosacea is often treated with a combination of topical medications, and cosmetic treatments like chemical peels, and high quality skincare products.
Prescription medications can be managed by your regular Family Doctor, while our focus at Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic is on cosmetic treatments to augment your regular treatment protocol.
Chemical Peels for Rosacea
Using chemical peels can help control Rosacea. Typically a light Vivier Peel is recommended on an infrequent basis for Rosacea patients. This light peel, used at an infrequent basis can help with light exfoliation and treating Rosacea. Using peels too often is not advised as it can irritant and exacerbate Rosacea. This is in contrast to a condition like Acne which benefits from frequent peel application.
High Grade Skincare
Patient’s with rosacea may have difficulty with some skincare products. The key is to find high quality, non irritating products that can help treat the symptoms of rosacea. Frequent moisturization, gentle skin cleansing, and avoiding “irritating” products like toners, and excessively exfoliating with chemical and physical exfoliants. Cleansing the face with medical grade products like SkinMedica, Vivier, or other leading brands can help control rosacea. Generally speaking, patients on an optimized skincare regimen with medical-grade cleansers, moisturizers, and other products find their rosacea better controlled. Using anti-redness products can also help in controlling aspects of rosacea. The key is adequate but not excessive skin treatment.
Sun protection is also an important aspect in rosacea treatment. The sun is thought to be a trigger to redness and flushing. While sun avoidance is important, sun protection with high quality sunscreen is essential.
Topical Retinols are also helpful in treating and controlling Rosacea. The anti inflammatory and repairing properties of retinol can help treat the pustules and papules that occur in some rosacea patients.

At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic we will go over your current medical and cosmetic regimen and provide recommendations on treatments such as Chemical Peels, or other Rosacea treatments.
Rosacea Chemical Peels
Peels are a popular cosmetic procedure in Canada. Peels are quick, simple, and safe procedure with minimal downtime. Chemical peels work through skin exfoliation by applying healthy acids to the skin. Chemical peels are great options for Rosacea as it exfoliates the top surface of the skin, turning over dead skin cells, treating lesions, and treating rosacea-causing bacteria. Chemical peels can also help treat excessively oily skin. Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic offers various types of chemical peels depending on the condition to treat, and skin type. Our favorite peel for Rosacea is the Vivier Peel – a light, rosacea “friendly” peel, as it is not as harsh as other peel types.
Chemical peels will also improve the general appearance of the skin, and will rejuvenate and refine aged, wrinkly skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to peel off the top layers and allows new skin to replace it. The new skin is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin, and may also be more even in colour, less acne-prone, and rejuvenated.
