Rosacea is a skin condition that causes pimples, flushing, blushing, or visible veins in your face. Rosacea flare-ups may come and go and feel uncomfortable. Rosacea is often described as adult acne. Treating rosacea can clear up your skin, improve how it feels, and reduce bothersome symptoms. See the Redwood Empire Dermatology team at the first sign of a problem.
Common signs and symptoms of rosacea include:
When left untreated, rosacea may feel uncomfortable or diminish your quality of life. Fortunately, treatment offers you the healthier-looking skin you long for.
The common causes and risk factors associated with rosacea flare-ups include:
Rosacea isn’t contagious, and it’s not caused by poor hygiene.
The Redwood Empire Dermatology team reviews your medical history, lifestyle habits, and symptoms to find out if you have rosacea and develop an effective treatment. They examine your skin in affected areas and may obtain a skin biopsy for further evaluation.
Your personalized rosacea treatment plan might include:
Your dermatologist may prescribe medications that reduce rosacea symptoms and the risk of future flare-ups. You might take oral medicines or use topical medications you can apply to your skin.
Laser treatments available at Redwood Empire Dermatology reduce the appearance of visible facial veins and are the most effective treatment for facial redness. You might need repeat laser treatments to achieve the best results, which often appear several weeks after the procedure.
Things you can do at home to reduce rosacea symptoms include:
Furthermore, use mild skin care products instead of harsh skin irritants.
