You may see vessels that are red or purple. This results in a very grotesque appearance since the nose is usually bulbous and pitted. There can be functional breathing challenges in a number of particularly advanced cases. Rosacea and rhinophyma share many features.
A patient with Rhinophyma typically has an affected lower part of the nose, usually the tip and sides. Males are more likely to develop Rhinophyma.
In comparison to all other forms of treatment for rhinophyma, CO2 lasers are considered to be the gold standard. Other treatments are not as effective and may lead to less satisfactory results. Rhinophyma is no longer treated by the NHS unless it affects a patient’s breathing.
Ever Clinic are the only clinic outside of London who treat Rhinophyma with the appropriate surgical lasers. We use the Lumenis Ultrapulse, which is recognised as the most powerful CO2 laser in the world. The Ultrapulse typically costs in excess of £130k, while cheaper and underpowered aesthetic lasers typically cost around £30k.
