ROSACEA TREATMENT

Rosacea is a skin condition that can easily be mistaken for acne or sunburn. It is characterized by redness and inflammation on the forehead, nose, cheeks, or chin that worsens over time.

By treating your rosacea, you can take the necessary steps to restore your confidence and have an overall improved sense of self.

COMMON CAUSES

The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but recent research suggests that this chronic skin condition develops due to a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental exposure to specific irritants.

Here are some traits of people that are highly likely to develop rosacea:

    • Have fair to light skin 
    • Abnormal blood vessel development and function 
    • Aged between 30 to 50
    • Have one or more parents or other close relatives who have the condition
    • Have Helicobacter pylori (bacteria often found in the intestines)
    • Have Bacillus oleronius and a related skin mite, Demodex

COMMON TRIGGERS

For people with rosacea, it is crucial to recognize the potential triggers that can cause a flare-up. A variety of stimuli from environmental temperature to a person's emotional state and certain foods can make the blood vessels dilate, thereby increasing the risk of a flare-up.

Common triggers include:

  • Spicy foods
  • Exposure to sun
  • Hot beverages
  • Extreme temperatures or weather conditions
  • Taking hot baths
  • Minor, untreated medical conditions that includes fever as a symptom
  • Exercising or otherwise producing excessive sweat and increased body temperature
  • Extreme emotional response
  • Alcohol
  • A few treatments and medications for chronic health conditions 
  • Allergies (food and environmental)
  • Hormonal imbalances, inflammatory conditions, and other chronic and systemic health concerns

Rosacea To Watch Out For

3 TYPES OF ROSACEA ON THE FACE THAT YOU SHOULD WATCH OUT FOR

People are often surprised to learn that more than one form of rosacea can affect them. Yes, there are four main types of rosacea, but patients can simultaneously experience many types of rosacea, unlike other skin conditions. To offer an effective treatment plan, we must examine a patient’s skin, talk through their health histories, and ensure that we provide solutions that fit the individual’s specific needs.

Papulopustular rosacea on the face—also called acne rosacea—causes facial redness, inflammation, and spider veins. Acne-like breakouts also accompany this type of rosacea. Acne can cause many different kinds of pimples, such as blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules, papules, etc.; papulopustular rosacea most often causes prominent, painful blemishes called papules and pustules that develop deep into the skin. These pimples are very painful. Like other types of rosacea, these blemishes grow primarily in the center of the face, scalp, and neck. In very severe cases, the chest and shoulders are also affected.

Unlike pimples, which occur most often during the teen years, acne rosacea is more common in adults. The skin may become very sensitive; it may burn or sting. Individuals with this condition may also experience oily or dry patches of skin. The dry patches may become thick and scaly, turning into hard, rough patches called plaques.

Like the thickened plaques of papulopustular rosacea, the skin of individuals with phymatous rosacea becomes thickened and bumpy. In time, this condition can lead to rhinophyma, a condition characterized by an enlarged nose.

The most visible symptom of phymatous rosacea is the enlargement of the skin due to excess buildup. It is more common in men than women and can be caused by poorly managed or untreated rosacea. The enlarged pores can appear independently from other rosacea symptoms like redness or visible blood vessels.
