Couperose Treatment

Couperosis is a completely harmless phenomenon that mainly occurs in people with fair skin. Couperosis is the presence of usually numerous dilated red and/or blue blood vessels in the face. The first dilated veins usually occur from the age of 30. Couperosis is more common in women than in men.

How does rosacea develop?
Couperose occurs because the superficial veins in the skin have become weaker and then dilated. A number of causal factors or triggering stimuli may underlie this:

  • Heredity. Couperose occurs more often within families.
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Skin type. People with lighter skin types appear to be more likely to develop rosacea.
  • Chronic use of corticosteroid-containing creams or ointments on the face
  • Temperature variations
  • Alcohol consumption
What can you do about couperose yourself?

Avoid as many stimuli as possible that can cause blood vessels to expand. For example, protect against sunlight and reduce alcohol consumption.

What is the course of rosacea?
Couperose is a condition that does not go away on its own. It can sometimes remain stable over the years, but sometimes it can even spread, for example to the neck or décolleté area.
