Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea – what do most people think about when they hear Rosacea? Well, most people think about WC Fields or Bill Clinton, with his red face and big nose; other people think about pimples and pustules looking somewhat like acne.

The truth is rosacea is a lot of different things to different people. You can have rosacea where there’s just redness in the skin or you can have rosacea where there’s big pustules just like acne. Here I’m going to focus on the rosacea that’s most common, where you have redness. Although I treat all types of rosacea the redness is the most common issue. We have various creams and various antibiotics we can use to control rosacea but at the end of the day the only thing that really brings the redness under control is lasers. And you have to have the right laser.
