Treatment for rosacea is a phone call away to a Plano area Dermatologist
Patients who struggle with a persistent red, flushed face may be dealing with a skin condition known as rosacea. It can cause patients to become embarrassed about their appearance, especially when they are unable to disguise the issue with cosmetics. Dr. Bryan Selkin of the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery is an experienced Dermatologist who can not only provide a proper diagnosis but also treatment for rosacea, for patients in the Plano, TX area.
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin disorder that causes redness and swelling on the facial area. This may also include bumps filled with pus, and broken blood vessels. It is extremely common, with three million cases diagnosed each year. Rosacea is most often seen in patients with fair skin in their 40s or 50s. The condition can be chronic, but treatment for rosacea is available. Patients begin with an examination with a Dermatologist to determine the type and severity of rosacea present. Then they discuss treatment solutions that can be used to reduce and control symptoms.
Rosacea can be treated in various ways. The path chosen depends on the patient’s response to treatments. Solutions may include:
- Creams to reduce redness and inflammation
- Antibiotics for pimples and pustules
- Vitamin supplements
- Laser and light therapies to reduce redness and pimples
