Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes facial redness, acne-like pimples, visible small blood vessels on the face, swelling and/or watery, irritated eyes. This inflammation of the face can affect the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead or eyelids. More than 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea. It is not contagious, but there is some evidence to suggest that it is inherited. 

Common Symptoms:

  • Flushing

  • Persistently red skin on the face

  • Bumps or acne-like pimples

  • Visible blood vessels on facial skin

  • Watery or irritated eyes

  • Burning, itching or stinging of facial skin

  • Skin roughness and dryness

  • Raised red patches

  • Swelling (edema)


While there is no cure for rosacea and each case is unique. Prescription antibiotics and topical medications can reduce severity of symptoms. In severe cases, a vascular laser, intense pulsed light laser may be used to remove any visible blood vessels and reduce excess redness. Book an appointment to see what options are available to help you finally get rid of rosacea symptoms.
