Rosacea

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that can cause flushing, red skin, pimples, visible facial blood vessels and an enlarged nose with prominent sebaceous glands. Rosacea occurs most commonly in women between the ages of 30 and 50 but can also occur in men. While genetic predisposition is the most important etiologic factor, a multitude of external factors can flare rosacea including sun exposure, heat, stress, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, spicy foods and certain skin care products. While there is no cure for rosacea, minimizing exposure to factors that trigger rosacea is helpful. Our healthcare providers specialize in the treatment of rosacea. In addition to medical therapy and a customized skin care program, we offer the latest in office procedures to minimize the manifestations of this distressing condition including chemical peels and laser treatments.
