Microdermabrasion : Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people who suffer with rosacea.
In fact. The treatments may clear the skin initially, but what people do not realize is that it will return and be much worse.
There are new laser treatments that have shown to improve rosacea. Consult a dermatologist who specializes in this type of laser treatment.
Best of luck.

Dermabrasion: Dermabrasion is a harsh treatment for someone with rosacea . If redness from broken blood vessels are a concern then laser is a good option.
