Dermatologist serving Milpitas, CA 95035 explains rosacea

Smiling Woman Side Look

Among the more than 14 million patients in the United States with rosacea, many may experience little or no symptoms. For those who do suffer from the multitude of signs and symptoms, they may find that the condition causes discomfort and self-consciousness from:

  • Persistent redness like a sunburn or severe blush
  • Bumps or pimples similar to acne that may cause burning or stinging sensations
  • Visible network of blood vessels, primarily on the face or nose
  • Blushing that recurs frequently
  • Dry-looking, rough skin patches
  • Raised patches with red coloring
  • Facial swelling
  • Ocular rosacea – irritated, watery, or bloodshot eyes which may lead to sties, corneal damage, or loss of vision
  • Rhinophyma – thickening of the skin, often on the nose, creating a bulbous appearance

Rosacea most commonly affects the face, although it may appear on the ears, neck, and chest. The common skin disorder is more frequently diagnosed in women, but men tend to experience more severe symptoms. This may be due to men delaying treatment or diagnosis. Rosacea is most likely to affect fair-skinned patients and those who blush easily.

At this time, rosacea has no known cure, but numerous treatments options allow patients to manage the condition effectively. At Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, our medical staff of board certified dermatologists offer the latest technology and treatments, from professional skin care products to medications, laser and light therapies, and cosmetic procedures. Treatments for rosacea may include:

  • Oral medications
  • Topical ointments or prescriptions
  • Peels
  • Photofacials or Broad Band Light (BBL) procedures
  • Vbeam laser therapy
  • Professional skin evaluation and skin care products
  • Surgical treatment of blood vessels or nose contouring
