Excessive Redness/Rosacea

Excessive facial redness most often affecting the nose, forehead and cheeks can be an embarrassing condition. Flushing may come and go for no evident reason. Sometimes excessive facial redness may be present at all times. Although it is known that redness is present due to dilated or broken capillaries, the cause is unknown. Contributing factors are heredity, sun, and several medical conditions. It is estimated that at least 13 million Americans have problems with excessive redness of the face or neck.

Rosacea is a medical condition that affects middle-aged people of both sexes. The cause of the condition is unknown but may be exacerbated by life-style and diet. Rosacea appears as facial redness, enlargement of the blood vessels, pimples, nodules, and cysts. In men, it can also cause the nose to become bumpy and enlarged. The best treatment for Rosacea will depend on the severity of the patient.

The Kopelson clinic can provide effective Rosacea treatments which include medications, cosmetic laser surgery and a personalized skin care regimen.

Rosacea Laser Treatment is directed toward either the redness with the Pulsed Dye or Nd:YAG lasers or the bacterial component with antibiotics.
