If you suffer from rosacea, you are not alone. More than 16 million people in the US have some form of rosacea. It is a skin disorder that is usually seen on the face and is chronic but treatable. When you talk to our professional, you will be able to ask questions about the condition and find the best way to treat it.
What Causes Rosacea?
Rosacea is commonly seen on people with fair skin tones who blush easily. You may be developing it if when you blush, or your face flushes because of the weather, the redness doesn’t fade quickly. It cannot be cured, but treatments can help it recede for months at a time. If you have tiny red blood vessels appearing on your face, there is a good chance you are developing rosacea. Early diagnosis is the best way to prevent it from becoming worse.
Our specialist may simply examine your skin, but in some cases, it is necessary to do a few tests to make sure your condition is not something else. This is important in order to prescribe the right treatment.
What Treatments are Available?
Depending on the severity of your condition, there are various treatments we may recommend. For example, we may suggest products that are designed to slow the progression of rosacea and help control the eruptions. This may take a few months to show results, but in time, you should notice that your symptoms are starting to fade.
When you consult our skin specialist, you may talk about your lifestyle, symptoms that are not visible and your preferences for skin care. You should also mention any medications you are taking.
One of the most important things to understand about rosacea treatments is that they can take time. The skin requires time to produce new skin without rosacea. This is why perseverance is important no matter what treatment we prescribe. You must have realistic expectations and be patient while you follow the prescribed treatment to achieve the desired results.
