WHAT IS ROSACEA?
Rosacea, a skin condition that causes the skin to appear inflamed and red, is usually presented across the nose and cheeks. It can often be mistaken for other skin ailments (like acne) so it is important to have a proper diagnosis. To treat rosacea, Dr. Rudolph Moise performs advanced laser treatments using Alma Harmony Dye-VL PRO technology to lighten the skin and reduce chronic symptoms. Rosacea can happen to almost anybody, but it is most common among middle-aged older women with fair skin. Although rosacea does not have a cure, the condition can be managed. When left untreated, it may worsen over time, causing symptoms to persist and flare up for days or weeks. To schedule an appointment, contact Comprehensive Medical Aesthetics in North Miami, FL.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What factors are considered rosacea triggers?
Though the precise cause of rosacea is unknown, it’s thought to be hereditary. It tends to be more common in people with light skin, as well as those who have severe acne or overactive immune systems. Rosacea may be aggravated by a number of things that raise blood circulation, including spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, sun exposure, hot showers, embarrassment, and strenuous exercise.
What are the common symptoms of rosacea?
Indicators of rosacea may vary from mild to severe. The standard sign of rosacea is visible redness in the central part of the face. The blood vessels of the cheeks and nose may appear swollen and apparent. Other signs include inflamed red bumps on the face, thick skin on the nose, and eye problems, such as dry eye and swollen eyelids.
How is rosacea treated?
During an in-office treatment at Comprehensive Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Moise utilizes the Harmony XL PRO laser to target inflamed blood vessels that cause the appearance of rosacea. While laser treatments do not cure rosacea, many patients notice clearer skin with less redness and flushing.
