What is Rosacea?
Rosacea, a skin condition that causes the skin to look inflamed and red, is typically presented around the nose and cheeks. It can frequently be mistaken for other skin conditions but can be treated and handled if diagnosed correctly. Providence Dermatology in Providence, UT offers many innovative solutions, including laser therapy, to lighten skin and minimize the signs of this chronic disease. Rosacea can happen to almost anyone, but it is widespread among middle-aged to older women with fair skin. This skin disease has no true cure, but it can be managed. If left untreated, it may worsen over the years, causing symptoms to persist and flare up for weeks and weeks. Dr. Travis James will examine your skin for signs of rosacea and create a personalized treatment plan that may include a photofacial with the Dye-VL PRO laser handpiece or Omnilux light therapy to keep them at bay.
How is Rosacea Treated?
Though there is not currently a cure for rosacea, there are a number of treatment choices available. Antibiotics can assist with flare-ups. You can use the medication in capsule form or as a cream, gel, or lotion. Pills tend to be more successful in providing rapid results but can cause more side effects. If antibiotics aren't effective, acne drugs, like isotretinoin, have been shown to work for some patients. Laser treatment may be required when symptoms become permanent, like enlarged blood vessels or redness that won't subside with other therapies. Laser surgery or electrosurgery can reduce the look of blood vessels and eliminate excessive tissue buildup across the nose. Dr. James also uses the Harmony XL PRO Dye-VL PRO laser and Omnilux light therapy to treat rosacea.
