Rosacea: Facial redness, broken vessels and facial flushing
Your skin seems to always be red. You “look” embarrassed even when you aren’t. You have acne that regular acne products only make worse. You experience episodes of facial flushing that is made worse by heat, spicy foods or alcohol. If any or all of these symptoms affect you, you likely have a condition called Rosacea.
Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin condition that usually only affects the face and eyes. Characterized by redness, pimples, and broken blood vessels, rosacea tends to begin after middle age (between the ages of 30 and 60) and is more common in fair-skinned people. It is often mistaken for adult acne.People who have Rosacea usually experience periods of flare-ups and periods of remission (the decrease or disappearance of symptoms). Rosacea causes a range of symptoms that may include redness, swelling, visible blood vessels, bumps or pimple-like blemishes and skin thickening.
Medical Management of Rosacea
Treatment combinations may include oral and topical medications. The use of lasers (IPL, PDT, Scanlite) for overall redness management have demonstrated excellent results in most cases.
Most Rosacea patients use combination therapies for the most effective results. We are here to help you treat this inflammatory disorder and help you get your life back to normal.
