Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder which worsens with time if left untreated. Generally it appears in people in their 30s, 40s or 50s as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that comes and goes. This early stage is often mistaken for a simple complexion problem or sunburn and ignored.
Redness and rosacea are not the same. Rosacea is very complex and each case is unique. The symptoms and severity can vary substantially from one patient to another. Therefore it is important that you are correctly diagnosed with rosacea by a doctor.
Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center offers two types of treatments: Photodynamic Therapy and Laser Therapy.
Four Types of Rosacea
Due to the many signs and symptoms of rosacea, it is categorized by four subtypes:
Facial Redness (Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea) Facial flushing, persistent facial redness and tiny blood vessels become visible.
Bumps and Pimples (Papulopustular Rosacea) In addition to persistent redness, acne-like bumps and pimples develop.
Enlargement of the Nose (Phymatous Rosacea) Enlargement of the nose from excess tissue, a condition known as rhinophyma. This may include thickening of the skin and irregular surface nodules. Usually affects men.
Eye Irritation (Ocular Rosacea) Eyes become red and irritated, eyelids can be swollen and styes are common.
Rosacea cannot be cured, but its symptoms can be reduced and its progression arrested through treatment and lifestyle modifications. Because it is a chronic disorder, research has found that sufferers usually must adhere to long-term medical therapy.
