What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a fairly common skin condition that causes redness of the face, often associated with easy flushing. It can also cause pimple-like breakouts.
What are the causes?
There are likely many causes for rosacea including genetics, fair-skin, and sun exposure. Individuals can have many different triggers that can be food-related and environmental. DermPhysicians can help you identify and avoid such triggers.
- Facial redness, including small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks
- Pimple-like breakouts on the face
- Easy flushing or blushing
- Eye symptoms
There is no true cure for this condition, but treatments can help to control and reduce these signs and symptoms.
Medicine, topical or oral, and laser treatments can help to reduce the signs of rosacea, and changes to your daily routine can prevent new flare-ups. Lifestyle modifications are extremely important. It is important to find out what triggers may affect you.
DermPhysicians of New England also provide IPL (intense pulsed light) to treat rosacea. This treatment is also known as EpiFacial. Our Hydrafacial treatment is another technique that can provide great benefits. Using products that are specifically gentle enough for rosacea, as well as helping to improve the skin barrier is key to preventing rosacea flares or worsening. DermPhysicians can help you design a skincare regimen to accomplish that.
