Rosacea (Red Face)

Rosacea is a very common disorder. Facial redness, flushing, dilated facial veins, acne like pimples and rhinophyma (see above) are all manifestations of this chronic disorder. While topical creams and antibiotic pills are helpful for the pimple like breakouts, the most effective treatment for redness and flushing is laser therapy.

Since Rosacea can be associated with skin sensitivity, burning, or stinging, and because early treatment may prevent progression to more severe disease, many insurance companies are now covering for laser treatment.

Lasers and Light Sources that may be used to treat Rosacea include:

  • V-Beam
  • (see Rhinophyma)
  • Matrix CO2 (see Rhinophyma)
