Rosacea in Tucson, AZ

What is Rosacea?

The skin condition known as rosacea, which causes the skin to look red and inflamed, is usually presented across the nose and cheeks. It is often confused with other skin ailments but may be treated and handled if diagnosed properly. Mountain View Dermatology and Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ utilizes a number of advanced solutions, such as laser treatment, to lighten the skin and minimize the symptoms of this chronic condition. Rosacea can happen to almost anybody, but it is most common among middle-aged, elderly women with light skin. This skin condition has no cure, but it may be managed. When left untreated, it can worsen, causing symptoms to return and flare up for days or weeks. Dr. Marc I. Epstein and his team will assess your skin for rosacea and develop a customized treatment plan to help keep symptoms at bay.

How is Rosacea Treated?

Though there is not currently a cure for rosacea, there are lots of treatment choices available in Tucson, AZ, including antibiotics that help with flare-ups. You can use the medication in a capsule form or as a cream, gel, or lotion. Pills tend to be much more effective in providing rapid results but can cause more side effects. If antibiotics are not effective, acne medications, such as isotretinoin, have proven to work for some patients. Surgery may be necessary in circumstances where the symptoms become permanent, such as enlarged blood vessels or inflammation that won't respond to other remedies. Laser surgery or electrosurgery can be utilized to reduce the look of blood vessels and eliminate excess tissue buildup around the nose.
