Rosacea & Redness Treatment | NYC
Rosacea is a chronic condition primarily of the facial skin that is characterized by redness, flushing, acne flare-ups, and remissions. Redness may occur on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that may come and go. In some cases, rosacea may also show up on the neck, chest, scalp, or ears. Although rosacea can affect all skin types, individuals with fair skin are more at risk, and it is more common in women. While there is no cure for rosacea and the cause is unknown, treatment to improve this condition is possible.
Many triggers of rosacea exist, including: foods (spicy foods, hot beverages, tomatoes, alcoholic beverages, red wine, citrus fruits, and many others); climate (extreme hot or cold weather, UV/Sun exposure, polluted air); stress and anxiety; and/or harsh skincare products. Other triggering factors may also exist for some patients. Avoiding and minimizing triggers is very important.
Treatment of breakouts (pimples and pustules) can be accomplished by using topical creams or oral antibiotics available at Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC. These treatments are highly effective for most patients. Another way to treat the acne breakouts of rosacea is with Blue Light, which may offer a longer period of remission. The redness of rosacea is also effectively treated with our state-of-the-art V-Beam Laser.
