How we treat rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial redness. Rosacea typically is located on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. It  is a common, but poorly understood disorder of the facial skin that is estimated to affect well over 16 million Americans — and most of them don’t know it. In fact, while rosacea is becoming increasingly widespread as the populous baby boom generation enters the most susceptible ages, a Gallup survey found that 78 percent of Americans have no knowledge of this condition, including how to recognize it or what to do about it.

Because of its red-faced, acne-like effects on personal appearance, however, it can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems if left untreated.

EMOTIONAL EFFECTS

In surveys by the National Rosacea Society, more than 76 percent of rosacea patients said their condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41 percent reported that it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements. Among rosacea patients with severe symptoms, 88 percent said the disorder had adversely affected their professional interactions, and 51 percent said they had even missed work because of their condition.

SYMPTOMS & TREATMENTS

While the cause of rosacea is unknown and there is no cure, today medical help is available that can control the signs and symptoms of this potentially life-disruptive disorder. Any one of the following warning signs is a signal to see a knowledgeable physician for diagnosis and appropriate treatment before the signs and symptoms become increasingly severe:

-Redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead.
-Small visible blood vessels on the face.
-Bumps or pimples on the face.
-Watery or irritated eyes.

Forever Young Broad Band Light Therapy:

Forever Young BBL is an innovative treatment that treats the signs of aging now and “stops the clock” on facial aging. The treatment uses photothermal energy to eliminate physical signs of aging (including red and brown discoloration in the skin). This therapy has been shown to actually change the expression of DNA at the cellular level of the skin, making the skin cells act decades younger. This process helps restore the skin to its natural, youthful state without any harsh chemicals or downtime.  For more information about Forever Young BBL, click here.

BBL/IPL

Photorejuvenation utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent and rejuvenating results by gently heating the upper layers of the skin. The photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible age spots. Photorejuvenation is effective at treating rosacea, broken capillaries, freckles, age spots, and sun damaged skin for a healthier and younger complexion.  For more information about IPL photorejuvenation, click here.
