Rosacea and redness can arise from hyperpigmentation or inflammation, commonly affecting the nose and cheeks. It is important to correctly diagnose and treat these conditions, as they can be mistaken for other skin conditions. At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA, we offer innovative solutions, including laser therapy, to lighten the skin and alleviate the symptoms associated with this chronic condition. While there is no definitive cure for rosacea, it can be effectively managed. Without proper treatment, rosacea can worsen over time, leading to recurring and prolonged flare-ups. Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz will carefully assess your skin for symptoms and develop a personalized treatment plan to help control the symptoms and minimize their impact on your daily life.
While there is no cure for rosacea, there are various treatment options available to help manage flare-ups. Antibiotics can be used in capsule form or as creams, gels, or lotions to effectively reduce symptoms. While pills may provide short-term relief, they may also have more side effects. In cases where antibiotics are not effective, certain acne medications have shown promise in treating rosacea. In some instances, surgical intervention may be necessary for irreversible symptoms such as enlarged blood vessels or persistent redness that does not respond to other treatments. Laser procedures, such as pulsed dye laser (PDL) or potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser, can target blood vessels and stimulate collagen production without harming the surrounding healthy skin. At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer PDL and KTP laser treatments to address redness and rosacea, providing targeted and effective results.
Rosacea can have both physical and emotional symptoms, causing anxiety and social discomfort due to the noticeable redness.
