Rosacea

Rosacea Treatment in Austin

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes facial redness and swelling. It can also affect the scalp, neck, and ears. Eye symptoms (ocular rosacea) are also reported by nearly half of all patients suffering from rosacea.

One of the first symptoms you may notice from rosacea is a tendency to flush or blush easily. The condition progresses to persistent redness, pimples, and visible, threadlike blood vessels (telangiectasias) in the center of the face.

These skin changes can eventually spread to the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. Rosacea occurs most commonly in people 30 to 50 years of age. Although women are more likely to have rosacea, men tend to suffer more severe forms.

Rosacea Treatment

Although there is no cure for rosacea, a variety of treatments will reduce its appearance and prevent further progression. If allowed to worsen over a long period, rosacea may become more difficult to treat, and it could take longer to see positive results.

Treatments for rosacea include oral and topical medications, lifestyle modifications, laser and light therapies, and surgical procedures (used mostly for advanced cases). Our Vitalogy Skincare Dermatologists may prescribe these treatments individually, or in combination for better results depending on your specific case.

You can schedule an appointment with one of our Dermatologists in our nine Austin area locations to discuss your rosacea and any treatment recommended: Bastrop, Burnet, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Harker Heights, Marble Falls, Pflugerville, San Marcos, and Southwest Austin.
