Rosacea and redness are caused by hyperpigmentation or inflammation. These conditions are commonly presented across the nose and cheeks. Frequently confused with other skin ailments, rosacea and redness can be treated and managed if diagnosed correctly. VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA utilizes a few innovative solutions, including laser therapy, to lighten the skin and decrease the symptoms of this chronic condition. Rosacea can occur in almost anyone, but it is widespread among middle-aged women with fair skin. Rosacea is a skin disease with no true cure, but it may be managed. If left untreated, it can worsen over time, causing symptoms to return and flare up for weeks and weeks. Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz will examine your skin for symptoms and create a customized treatment plan to keep the symptoms at bay.

Though there is no cure for rosacea, many treatment options, like antibiotics, are available to assist with flare-ups. You can use the medication in capsule form or as a cream, gel, or lotion. Pills tend to be more successful in the short term but can result in more side effects. If antibiotics aren't effective, acne drugs have been shown to work for some patients. Surgery may be required in cases where the symptoms become irreversible, like enlarged blood vessels or redness that won't respond to any other treatments. Laser procedures or electrosurgery may also reduce the look of blood vessels and eliminate excess tissue buildup across the nose.

At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we use either the pulsed dye laser (PDL) or potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser to treat redness and rosacea. A PDL treatment targets blood vessels responsible for redness and boosts collagen production without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. KTP laser does the same, emitting a green light, collapsing the blood vessels, and decreasing generalized redness in rosacea.

Dr Pomerantz has been treating me for my Rosacea for a couple of years now and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She also recently treated some moles on my face which I was anxious about. After all, it's my face. She and her staff made me feel comfortable and confident in the treatment. My skin looks amazing and I'm so happy I found such a great Dr to put my trust in. For any skin care needs, I would definitely recommending 100%, making an appointment to see Dr Pomerantz at VivaSkin.
