Rosacea Treatment NYC Rosacea is a common skin condition, characterized by persistent flushing and facial redness. Dr. Ostad understands that it can affect more than the skin, it can have a negative impact on a person’s confidence and quality of life. At his New York practice, he offers innovative therapies and customized treatment plans to reduce the signs of rosacea and prevent future flares.

Signs of rosacea

Experts 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
