Rosacea is an extremely common skin condition that is estimated to affect around 16 million Americans. It is known to cause red, acne-like bumps along the face. Rosacea often fluctuates between flares and remission, and tends to worsen if left unattended.
Although it cannot be cured, rosacea can be effectively be controlled and treated. Healthpointe’s Cosmetic Laser Institute offers extensive treatment that can significantly reduce the symptoms of Rosacea and the stress that accompany it.
Symptoms of Rosacea
Untreated rosacea exhibits a variety of symptoms including a red, flushed face often accompanied by a burning or stinging sensation; bumps along the skin that resemble acne; and harsh and coarse skin. Rosacea often irritates and dries the eyes; in extreme cases it can also lead to a loss of vision.
Causes of Rosacea
At one point it was commonly believed that alcohol consumption could cause Rosacea. Although that has been proven incorrect; alcohol, exercise, extreme weather, spicy foods, and other intense conditions can trigger symptoms but are not the cause of rosacea. The aforementioned triggers cause the blood vessels in the body, particularly the face, to dilate, leading to a flush red glow similar to blushing or acne.
Treatment of Rosacea
Rosacea can be effectively treated however there is no permanent cure. Dermatologists will often recommend cosmetic make-up or anti-biotics such as lotions, creams, and gels for mild cases. Furthermore, acne-treating drugs used to cure extreme cases of acne can also be used to reduce the inflammation caused by rosacea.
Long-term treatment is recommended regardless of the severity of your symptoms; this is due to the fact that rosacea can fluctuate between periods of remission and relapse.
Healthpointe offers a variety of creams to reduce inflammation. Come in today to see how Healthpointe can help you feel better in your skin.
