Rosacea is a very common condition. It predominantly affects middle aged women with a fair skin complexion.
It manifests as redness and visible capillaries, predominantly on the cheeks and around the nose. With time the skin in the affected areas become thicker, especially on the nose.
This condition is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors such as sun exposure, cold exposure, exercise, emotions and spicy hot foods.
Treatment of this condition includes life style modifications, skin care products, oral and topical medications.
Microneedling and Laser can help improve the appearance of rosacea. Multiple sessions are necessary to control rosacea.
