Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects millions of Americans – both men and women. It is caused when the blood vessels in your face become enlarged, resulting in redness, swelling, and small bumps around the cheeks and nose. Sometimes, these bumps can be confused for acne, but they differ in that they develop dilated blood vessels instead of blackheads.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition, and the cause is still currently unknown. However, certain factors can trigger it, including:
- Extreme hot or cold temperatures
- Spicy foods
- Some skin products
This condition will not go away on its own. Thankfully, our trained clinicians can help you reduce the effects of rosacea through a number of different procedures, including laser therapy with Intense Pulse Light (IPL), microdermabrasion, and traditional facials. We also offer home-care products such as the innovative Rose Cleanser to alleviate rosacea.
