Rosacea (rose-AY-sha), is a condition that affects women and men after age 30. Small blood capillaries come to the surface of the skin, where they remain and appear red or "blushed". This can cause redness and pore enlargement. Often referred to as "adult acne,"; rosacea may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily, and progress to persistent redness in the center of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. It also may involve the ears, chest, back and even the eyes.
Early Treatment Recommended
The best advice for you if you think may have rosacea is to come in and see Dr. Holmes as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can control the signs and symptoms of rosacea so that rosacea is usually not visible or uncomfortable. Early treatment also may stop rosacea from progressing. This condition rarely reverses itself and may last for years. With treatment, however, this condition can be controlled successfully. Dr. Holmes is an expert in the treatment of this condition and uses many different treatments including lasers to decrease signs of rosecea. Additionally, She can recommend skin products for this condition that improve the symptoms dramatically.
