Rosacea Treatment NYC
Signs of rosaceaExperts estimate that rosacea affects approximately 16 million individuals in the United States alone. However, many of those people do not know it. Many people self-diagnose rosacea as acne, a reaction to something, or simply a naturally red complexion. If you struggle with the embarrassment and frustration of problematic skin, check the symptoms listed below – if they sound familiar, you may have rosacea.
There are several sub-types of rosacea, and the symptoms can vary. The most common signs include:
- Redness in the cheeks, chin, nose, or forehead areas
- Thickening of skin, particularly around the nose
- Acne-like pimples and bumps on skin
- Broken capillaries (small blood vessels) in the face
- Ocular rosacea also affects the eyes, making them appear bloodshot
Causes and triggersThe precise cause of rosacea is not known. It can affect anyone, at any age, but is most common in women. Fair skinned people are much more susceptible to rosacea than those with darker skin.
Common triggers include:
- Spicy or hot food
- Extreme temperatures
- Physical exertion
- Hot showers
- Skin dryness
- Many, many, more
Treatment optionsDr. Ostad uses the Cutera Genesis laser or the Cutera Excel V laser to treat facial redness, visible vessels, broken capillaries, and other symptoms of rosacea. Laser therapy can also help prevent mild rosacea from progressing. In addition to in-office treatments, we help patients learn to identify triggers and optimize their habits to avoid flares.
