Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition usually characterized by redness in the cheeks and around the face, visible spider veins or broken blood vessels, and dry, rough scaly skin.

Rosacea affects more than 14 million people in the United States. It is most commonly occurring in people between 30-50 years old with fair, acne-prone skin. Women are more likely to have Rosacea, but men account for the more severe cases. Although it is a hereditary condition, anyone can get Rosacea.
Those affected can suffer from psychological issues. Insecurities, anxiety and depression can manifest from these symptoms, and can affect quality of life including work, school and relationships. While the condition itself is not a health concern, treating the symptoms have been shown to improve quality of life of those with the condition.
If untreated, rosacea can get worse. There are multiple oral and topical treatments available, however, our medical staff can help diagnose your particular case and devise a plan of action. Lasers, peels and dermabrasion are some treatments producing very positive results.
