Rosacea presents on the face, typically on the nose, cheeks, or forehead. It is seen in both men and women, but women are more likely to have it. The persistent redness can be embarrassing as well as difficult to get rid of, but we can offer you relief with a combination treatment approach that addresses your specific issues.
Treatment options for rosacea
If you or someone in your family is suffering from rosacea, we will explore a number of different approaches to treatment, depending on your circumstances and how the disease presents. Although there is currently no cure available for the condition, it can be managed to the point where it is less noticeable. We will also take steps to make sure it doesn’t get any worse. Just having some options for treatment is often a big relief to those who are dealing with this chronic skin disease.
As with all of our treatments, we custom tailor the methods we use to the individual for the highest chance of success. We believe each patient is different and strive to make sure our prescription for care closely matches the issues you are having.
Treatment options we provide for rosacea patients may include some or all of the following:
- Topical creams
- Low-dose oral antibiotics
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) photofacial
We are happy to elaborate on the different approaches we take to rosacea care when you visit our office in Loveland.
Seeking help for rosacea
If you think you may have rosacea, please contact our office in Loveland to make an appointment to see a dermatologist for an evaluation. It is possible you may have another type of skin condition, such as eczema or psoriasis. Our medical staff will examine you and make a determination based on a variety of presenting factors. We are experienced in diagnosing skin conditions of all kinds, and will be able to tell you if it is rosacea or something else. Either way, we will be able to treat you for your symptoms—and sometimes we can even treat the underlying causes of your particular skin issue.
If you are experiencing persistent redness on your face that doesn’t go away in time, you may have rosacea. You might have other symptoms, as well, including swollen red bumps on your facial skin, eye issues, and an enlarged nose. Not all of these factors have to be present for a diagnosis of rosacea to be made.
The first step in any treatment plan is getting an accurate diagnosis from a trained professional. We can help! Contact our office today for an appointment.
