Rosacea is a facial skin disorder that is treatable but not curable.
The symptoms of rosacea are:
- Redness on cheeks, nose, chin or forehead
- Small blood vessels on face
- Small bumps
While a specific laser can sometimes effectively treat rosacea, Dr. Lantry normally recommends a special cleanser and topical cream treatment. We offer the Rosaclear system from Obagi which includes a cleanser specially formulated for sensitive skin, a corrective cream and a prescription medication. Patients start seeing positive results in a few days, but 3-6 months is needed for complete results. Patients then stay on a maintenance schedule to keep Rosacea at bay.
