What is it?
Rosacea is a disorder of the face that
results in redness, prominent blood vessels, swelling
of pores, and skin eruptions similar to acne. Also called
"adult acne", the cause of rosacea is unknown.
It occurs most often in fair skinned people, particularly
those who blush easily. Women are more commonly affected,
although men are more severely affected. Symptoms usually
begin to appear between ages 30 to 50, and the disorder
is most often seen in middle-aged or older people.
signs of rosacea are:
of the face or cheeks similar to a rash
tendency to flush or blush easily
vascularity (broken capillaries) of the face
red, often enlarged nose
burning or stinging sensation of the face
While rosacea cannot be cured, its symptoms can be controlled
and your appearance can be treated. The best way to
control rosacea is to avoid the triggering events such
as prolonged periods of sun exposure, nicotine, caffeine,
and alcohol. Heat and rich foods can also contribute
to the effects of rosacea. While
topical creams may help control rosacea, the best way
to improve your appearance is with light-based treatments
such as intense pulsed light and laser.
Treatments must be individualized depending on the severity
of your condition and the symptoms you want treated.
