This often-chronic skin condition typically affects the face, including the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
Initially, rosacea is identified as intermittent redness or blushing. Over time, the redness may become more visible and persistent. More than half of rosacea sufferers also report sore or “gritty” eyes.
Rosacea symptoms differ from one person to the next, and it is extremely difficult to predict severity. Sometimes bumps, puss-filled pimples or enlarged blood vessels can appear, giving the skin a rough and uneven appearance. While there is no known cure for rosacea, it can be managed via a combination of lifestyle changes and direct treatment.
Rosacea is a very common, benign skin disorder that affects many people. The main symptoms include red or pink patches, visible broken blood vessels, small red bumps or cysts, and pink or irritated eyes.
Most people with rosacea may not even know they have the skin disorder or that it is a treatable condition. In fact, many just assume they blush easily or have gotten sunburned. It most commonly affects adults from 30 to 50, especially women and those with fair skin.
At Discovery Laser, we treat Rosacea using a combination of laser treatments and Oxygen RX facial treatments. The procedures are quick, easy and pleasant. And the end result is reduced redness and clear, luminous skin with a feeling of firmness. A series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended for optimum results.
