TREAT THE REDNESS, INFLAMMATION, AND BREAKOUTS OF ROSACEA
At Cedars Dermatology we offer Rosacea treatments. Rosacea is a common rash, usually occurring on the face, which predominantly affects both middle-aged (age range 40 to 60 years old) and fair-skinned people. It is more common in women, but tends to be more severe in men. It is a chronic condition and, in any individual, the severity tends to come and go.
Rosacea tends to affect the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose, and is characterised by redness, dilated blood vessels, small red bumps and pus-filled spots (sometimes these may only be visible with a magnifying glass), often with a tendency to blush easily. With rosacea, there may also be uncomfortable inflammation of the eyes and eyelid.Book Consultation
CALM YOUR SKIN
Those who suffer from rosacea experience prolonged flares and blotches of redness in the skin, which can negatively impact self-confidence. Though Rosacea tends to start with lingering blushing, as the condition becomes more severe it can also result in scaling of the skin, and inflamed, acne-like breakouts on the forehead, nose, and cheeks. Rosacea can also lead to inflamed, highly visible blood vessels, which in turn can result in a thickening of the skin.
At the Cedars Dermatology Clinic, we use laser technology to treat unwanted redness and all its associated concerns, giving you a clearer, more balanced complexion.

FAQs about Rosacea Treatments
We don’t really know what causes rosacea. There are a number of theories. There is probably a genetic predisposition, although it doesn’t necessary run in families. It can be hormonally related. We know it’s an immune-related condition, as well.
Rosacea typically occurs later in life, between 40 and 60, but it can occur any age.
Rosacea can be really annoying, making flare-ups for no obvious reason. But there are some triggers in certain people. They include sunlight for many people, but not everybody. Alcohol can trigger it, and spicy food.
Patients with rosacea can help themselves by using sun protection as sun can often exacerbate the condition. Camouflage can help, so particularly green or yellow tint can disguise the redness. And avoiding exacerbating factors, for example, spicy food and red wine, which can trigger it off in some people.
