Rosacea: An Unpleasant Reality That Can Be Treated

Rosacea is an unpleasant rash occurring primarily on the face that appears predominately in middle aged Caucasian men and women. The causes of rosacea are not well understood. Rosacea generally effects people initially in their 30s and 40s, and is especially common among those people with light skin, blue eyes, and especially if they are of Celtic origin. The rash marks associated with rosacea differs from acne in few important ways. The red spots and pustules will be dome shaped rather than pointed and you will not see the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, or deeper cysts. Rosacea is estimated to impact more than 14 million Americans, and for this reason, rosacea treatment has become one of the most commonly sought after therapies in cosmetic procedures.

Rosacea is not considered a significantly health threatening condition and this important reality should be taken into account when you are considering whether or not you will seek rosacea treatments. Rosacea treatments are most often wanted by people who find the condition to be unsightly and are embarrassed by the rash and suffer the lower self esteem that comes with it. Although the cause of rosacea is not completely clear there are some new medical techniques currently available that will help to treat at least the symptoms of rosacea and these new techniques should make up the primary resources of your rosacea treatment program. Before commencing any rosacea treatment you should first make certain that your condition is truly rosacea by contacting a doctor for a thorough examination of your skin. You can expect the most common symptoms of rosacea to be watery or irritated eyes, a general redness of the cheeks, pimple like bumps on the skin of the face, chin, forehead, or nose; and finally visibility of small red veins in the facial skin. If you are experiencing persistent symptoms that sound familiar to this, contact a doctor to explore your options for rosacea treatment.

Rosacea treatment may involve antibiotic creams or pills to control your symptoms, these sorts of rosacea treatments can take a month or even longer before improvement in your skin condition is noticeably visible. If you have an extremely bad case of rosacea stronger medicines may be attempted. Finally rosacea treatment can include cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of the skin without treating the cause of the rosacea itself. Laser treatment has become an extremely popular method of rosacea treatment, though again it is important to remember that laser treatments are really effective only at managing certain symptoms of rosacea and is not a cure nor is it an effective preventative.
