Enjoy Relief from Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that often begins with a tendency to blush more easily.  With time, that blush becomes permanent, involving the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin. While Rosacea might not be a threatening medical emergency, it can impact your look in ways that are less than desirable, having an effect on your self-confidence and your overall quality of life. While it might not be possible to completely erase the presence of rosacea, Dr. Chiang and her team can absolutely help you find a way to manage your flare-ups and enjoy relief from the persistent redness that can come along with this condition. If you’re ready to learn more, our team is standing by and will be ready to help you set up your initial consultation. Reach out to us at our Spring, TX location and schedule your appointment today.

Understanding Rosacea

Rosacea can have other features as well, so dermatologists classify rosacea into four groups depending on the pattern of features. Proper classification is important because effective treatment depends on the particular subtype of rosacea that you’re dealing with.

Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea

This condition is characterized by easy blushing that leads to a persistently red face; this is the most common subtype.

Papulopustular Rosacea

This variant involves a red face, episodes of swelling, and pimple-like bumps that come and go.

Phymatous Rosacea

This type involves thickened, bumpy skin, typically near the nose. It can be progressive and disfiguring. Unlike all other subtypes, this subtype more commonly affects men.

Ocular (Eye) Rosacea

This type is characterized by watery or burning eyes, red eyes, and irritation of the eyelid margin (the part of the eyelid that bears the eyelashes). Chalazion and styes are also common signs.  About half of the patients with ocular rosacea will have skin involvement.

Am I at Risk?

Rosacea more commonly affects middle-aged women, but men can also be affected. Children and teens are rarely affected. Rosacea most frequently affects fair-skinned individuals, but it can occur in any skin color.

The Causes of Rosacea

The medical community is starting to understand rosacea better, but there is still a lot to uncover. This is what we know right now:

  • Rosacea runs in families, so we suspect that there is a genetic component. 
  • The immune system may play a role. People with rosacea have increased activity of their skin’s immune system, leading to the redness, swelling, and bumps that are characteristic of rosacea. Bacteria, such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, Helicobacter pylori, and Bacillus oleronius, and mites called Demodex folliculorum, may play a role in rosacea by over-stimulating the immune system. 
  • The skin’s nervous system may also play a role. Hot temperatures and spicy foods aggravate rosacea through sensory nerves.
  • Normal skin keeps outside things out and inside things in. People with rosacea have decreased barrier function, and this results in more sensitive skin that loses water more easily than normal skin.

Your Treatment Options

There is no cure for rosacea, but it can be controlled. Treatments include lifestyle management, appropriate skin care, oral medications, and light devices. When you visit Integrated Aesthetics, Dr. Chiang will get to know the details of your case, educate you on the options that are available to you, and work with you to craft a customized treatment plan.

Lifestyle Management

If you have rosacea, try to identify triggers for flushing. These can include hot showers, hot beverages, spicy foods, and alcohol.

Light Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Genesis are both very helpful in reducing flushing, persistent redness, and ocular rosacea. 

Skin Care

A skincare regimen that does not irritate the skin is vitally important.  A typical skin care regimen includes a gentle cleanser, moisturizers to help restore the skin’s barrier function, and effective sunscreen. In addition, topical medications, such as sulfur, metronidazole or ivermectin, can be very helpful in reducing acne-like lesions and overall rosacea activity. 

Oral Medications

If acne-like lesions or eye involvement are part of rosacea, doxycycline or minocycline can be beneficial since they are anti-inflammatory. If rosacea is very severe, your dermatologist may consider Accutane.
