Millions of individuals in the U.S. suffer from rosacea, a skin condition that can cause red, bumpy skin and other side effects. While anyone can develop rosacea, it is most common among fair-skinned people and women between the ages of 30-50. There is not a cure for rosacea, but there are cosmetic dermatology treatments to control the symptoms. Our board certified dermatologist, Dr. Morgan, at LM Medical NYC, offers effective rosacea treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.
The cause of rosacea is unknown. Beyond risk factors of gender and skin-type, little is known about why this skin condition suddenly appears. However, there are triggers that can bring on outbreaks. Some of these can include spicy foods, heat, sun exposure, caffeine and alcoholic beverages. Symptoms of rosacea can include:
- Flushing or red skin
- Visible blood vessels
- Red patches on the nose and cheeks – the face, neck, chest and back can also be affected
- Persistent red skin
- Small cysts or pustules – similar to acne
- Dry, gritty eyes
Each person may experience rosacea symptoms differently, which is why it is important to have a personalized treatment plan created by a dermatologist.
Customized Rosacea Treatment Plan
World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan and our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC can create a personalized rosacea treatment plan to ensure you find relief from the aggravating and aesthetic symptoms. Oral and topical medications can help control outbreaks, as well as avoiding triggers. For skincare, specific creams and cosmetics that are safe for rosacea-effected skin should be used. Dr. Morgan can recommend the best skincare program and cosmetics to help improve rosacea symptoms.
To reduce the appearance of rosacea, laser treatments can be very effective. Laser therapy can use light energy to reduce redness and bumps on the skin, improving the appearance of the face, neck and chest.
