London, United Kingdom, April 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The UK Beauty Clinic www.Pulselightclinic.co.uk Participates in Rosacea Awareness Month
April has been designated "Rosacea
Awareness Month" with the intention of raising awareness and identifying sufferers who are unaware they have the condition.
In the USA, the National Rosacea Society offer free educational materials on rosacea by U.S. mail, or anyone can call the Society's toll-free number at 1-888-NO-BLUSH.
In the UK, the www.Pulselightclinic.co.uk offers a similar service in the form of free research. Anyone can download a free e-book, (researched on behalf of Pulse Light Clinic by digestive health
expert Lisa Borg Dip BCNH).
Pulse Light Clinic also instructed its Drupal Web Designers, SEOCompany4 to give users the ability to upload a photo using the contact page. This allows an initial free consultation over the internet.
It is well documented that in many cases of rosacea, simple visual inspection by a trained person is sufficient for diagnosis ref 1). Therefore anyone who thinks they may have undiagnosed Rosacea will be given a free diagnosis by a rosacea specialist initiated with the contact form to upload a photo.
In appropriate cases, a free face to face consultation at the London clinic may be advised.
This facility has been introduced for Rosacea Awareness Month, and will continue to be available all year round.
Most people with rosacea have only mild redness and are never formally diagnosed or treated. There is no single, specific test for rosacea.
In many cases, simple visual inspection by a trained person is sufficient for diagnosis. In other cases, particularly when pimples or redness on less-common parts of the face are present, a trial of common treatments is useful for confirming a suspected diagnosis.
Clinic owner Sheila MacLean explained, “The disorder can be confused with, and co-exist with acne vulgaris and/or seborrhoeic dermatitis. The presence of rash on the scalp or ears suggests a different or co-existing diagnosis as rosacea is primarily a facial diagnosis, although it may occasionally appear in these other areas.”
It is widely recognised that many people are unaware of the symptoms of Rosacea, and also that some sufferers are not aware they have the condition and so do not have treatment.
Treatment is widely recognised to be more effective if the condition is diagnosed in its early stages.
In the USA: It affects over 14 million people and for this reason there is a rosacea awareness month, which is April.
In Canada: Approximately 1.5 million Canadians are affected and there is a rosacea awareness month, which is March.
The Pulselightclinic engaged drupal web design
company www.SEOCompany4.com to help move its research papers for rosacea and rosacea treatment to page 1 of Google, as part of an overall awareness campaign.
This campaign was conducted entirely with ethical SEO, by distributing information about rosacea and opening discussions on social networks.
The London clinic has specialised in the use of high energy pulsed light and laser light to treat a number of cosmetic related areas including permanent hair removal
and laser tattoo removal
