• Rosacea is a common skin disorder in men and women, affecting over 16 million Americans. This skin condition is characterized by facial redness and flawed texture, flushing and skin sensitivity, which leads to lingering redness and small vessels, mainly on the nose, upper cheeks and chin. Typically, the symptoms of rosacea come and go with lengths of time in-between initially, then will become more and more frequent when left untreated.

Cause of Rosacea

  • The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, although there is a strong genetic link and there have been triggers identified that can contribute to “flare-ups”, such as certain skin care regimens, sun exposure, alcohol and spicy foods. The visibility and chronic nature of rosacea lends to self-consciousness, social isolation, and avoidance of certain activities that you once enjoyed.
