Reduce Redness

How we manage Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the face, causing redness, visible blood vessels, and often, red bumps or pustules. While there is no cure for rosacea, there are many treatment options available to manage its symptoms and improve the appearance of the skin. It’s important to consult a Dermatologist for a proper diagnosis and personalized treatment plan, as the most effective approach may vary from person to person.

Some common rosacea treatments include topical medications like metronidazole, ivermectin or azelaic acid. These can reduce inflammation and redness that occur with rosacea. Oral medications like antibiotics, or in severe cases, isotretinoin (brand name Accutane), may be prescribed to control papules and pustules associated with rosacea. Light therapy (BBL) or laser therapy can reduce redness by destroying the small blood vessels that become visible with rosacea.  Lifestyle and skincare modifications can also help. Identify and avoid triggers that worsen your rosacea, like spicy food, alcohol, or extreme temperatures and stick to gentle skincare for best results. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from UV radiation.
