Rosacea – Is it Treatable?

iStock_000020383481MediumRosacea is a skin problem that can occur at any stage of life. It is a chronic condition where the skin is perpetually red, with outbreaks of acne. Many people don’t know they have rosacea, but simply think they have sensitive skin.

Rosacea is caused by genetic factors and the usage of certain medications or foods that play a role in dilating the blood vessels. It can also be caused by a skin mite known as Demodex folliculorum.

At Matsuda Dermatology, we offer topical creams, oral antibiotics, and skin cleansers for the treatment of rosacea. If those are ineffective, we recommend laser treatment that targets the blood vessels on your neck and face.

Rosacea is a condition that can make a person feel self-conscious, but with our treatment options at Matsuda Dermatology, we can put the problem behind you.
