If you suffer from red patches of skin, especially on your face, then you may have a skin condition known as Rosacea.
This skin condition is characterized by redness, and sometimes pimples, that is often triggered by certain environmental factors, such as particular kinds of light, or spicy foods and alcohol.
Rosacea is a condition that should be diagnosed by a certified dermatologist, especially to determine which type of rosacea you have. While there is no cure for rosacea, the good news is that there are plenty of treatment methods that have been proven effective.
The treatment that is right for you will vary based on the severity of your skin condition. Often times, less severe rosacea responds well to prescribed topical creams or oral medication.
For more severe cases of facial redness, it may be necessary to undergo Intense Pulsed Light treatments (fotofacial). If you think you are one of many suffering from rosacea, take the time to meet with one of our skin experts at the Calabasas Dermatology Center to discuss these procedures further
