What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a condition that causes the skin to appear red and inflamed, typically occurring around the cheeks and nose. It is often mistaken for other skin ailments but when diagnosed properly it can be treated. Imperial Dermatology utilizes a number of innovative solutions, including laser therapy, to lighten the skin and minimize the symptoms of this chronic disease. Rosacea is most prevalent among middle-aged or older women with fair skin. While there is no actual cure for rosacea, it's possible to manage the condition and lessen flare-ups. During a consultation in Hollywood, FL, Dr. Simona Bartos will evaluate your skin for rosacea and develop a custom treatment plan to keep the symptoms at bay.

Rosacea Symptoms and Treatment

Rosacea is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental and hereditary factors. There are many other elements that could aggravate rosacea by increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin, including spicy foods, alcohol, hot beverages, sun, extreme temperatures, hot baths or showers, stress, embarrassment, overexertion, and certain medications. The most obvious signs of rosacea are redness and swollen bumps on the central part of the face. Some rosacea sufferers have eye problems, as well as thickened, bulbous skin on the nose. There are a number of treatment choices available to help with flare-ups, including oral acne drugs and antibiotics, while topical creams, lotions, and gels can be effective to control inflammation and reduce redness. For many patients, laser treatments can help to minimize the appearance of blood vessels and reduce excess tissue buildup.
