Rosacea Treatment

August 28, 2020

You may consider seeing a dermatologist to treat various skin conditions such as acne or skin cancer. From routine examinations to complex cosmetic procedures, the dermatological office of Dermatology for the Family is equipped to handle all of your skin care needs. For example, many of our patients visit us for our expertise in the diagnosis and rosacea treatment.

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness, scaling, and visible blood vessels in the central part of the face. Rosacea can occur in anyone. But it most commonly affects middle-aged women who have fair skin. The cause of rosacea is unknown, but it could be due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Rosacea is not caused by poor hygiene. Symptoms include facial redness, swollen red bumps, eye problems, and an enlarged nose. These signs and symptoms may flare up for a period of weeks to months and then diminish for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems. If you experience persistent redness of your face, it's time to see us for a diagnosis and proper Manasquan rosacea treatment. There's no specific test for rosacea. Instead, we will rely on the history of your symptoms and a physical examination of your skin. While there's no cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. Treatment for rosacea focuses on controlling signs and symptoms. Most often this requires a combination of skin care and prescription treatments. Dr. Karakashian will determine which medication will efficiently improve your condition.
