Rosacea Remedies

March 7, 2024

Do you suffer from bothersome, patchy redness on your face? If you’ve been dealing with intermittent redness on the cheeks, forehead, or both, its likely rosacea has negatively affected your life. The providers at Dermatology Consultants have been helping patients to remedy the negative effects of rosacea with great success for years. Because April is Rosacea Awareness Month, read on to learn more about how to live and thrive with this condition from Dermatology Consultants.


What is Rosacea?

Concentrated redness on the face that occurs regularly and gets worse over time is likely rosacea. It is a vascular condition that causes blood vessels to become visible on the surface of the cheeks and forehead, producing a red, flushed look. While the intense blushing can be annoying, it is a very common skin condition. Because it can sometimes look like acne or dermatitis, a visit to your dermatologist will diagnose the skin issue as well as a treatment plan. Some people with advanced inflammatory rosacea display more pronounced blood vessels and acne-like bumps. A smaller number of cases experience thickened skin and bumps on the cheeks and nose and even eye irritation from inflammation on the eyelid or in the eye. These irritating symptoms can stick around for weeks to months causing embarrassment as the face is the first thing that people notice.


4 Different Types of Rosacea

  • Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea – Characterized by persistent redness on the face.
  • Papulopustular Rosacea – Redness plus red bumps, plus pus-filled spots.
  • Phymatous Rosacea – Skin becomes thickened with enlarged nose.
  • Ocular Rosacea – Rosacea of the eye.


How to Manage Rosacea

While there is no cure for rosacea, you can learn to manage and lessen flare-ups with proper skin protocol, prescriptions and the latest technological treatments from your dermatologist. The providers at Dermatology Consultants are well versed in diagnosing and managing this bothersome skin condition. First, your dermatologist or provider will assess the skin and if needed, run tests to rule out more complicated conditions. For those with brown and Black skin, rosacea may be harder to see, but left untreated can exacerbate into swelling, bumps, facial stinging and dry-looking skin. The pros at Dermatology Consultants will suggest a calming skincare routine along with reduced sun exposure, heat, limiting spicy foods, caffeine, stress and alcohol. Because we don’t want to take away all the simple pleasures in life, there are some revolutionary new treatments in-office for rosacea.


Light Therapy for Rosacea

An effective, in-office treatment for rosacea is light therapy with Broad Band Light, or BBL. BBL uses Intense Pulsed Light through a handheld device for treating rosacea, as well as acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, broken capillaries, and sun damage. Once the pigment cells absorb the BBL energy, these cells are destroyed, which causes healing to occur and new skin cells to form. BBL energy allows your board-certified dermatologist to precisely treat redness as well as wrinkles, age and sun spots, small facial veins, and several other skin blemishes. Both light therapy options offer the most effective and long-lasting rosacea treatment, with no downtime and result in clear, even, skin that gets better over time.

These treatments require minimal prep and downtime, and short appointment times meaning you’ll be leaving our offices refreshed ready to get on with your day. The board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Consultants will guide you on the best options for your specific case.


Sylfirm X for Rosacea

Sylfirm X is a revolutionary treatment using radio frequency (RF) with microneedling to help reduce pigmentation from aging, sun exposure and rosacea. A great benefit of Sylfirm X is a boost in firmness along with evening out skin tone so you’ll be getting extra benefits with your rosacea treatment.
