Introducing the New FDA-Approved Solution for Rosacea

Posted on June 1, 2018

In the disorder is known as Rosacea, facial redness is very common on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. As you age Rosacea, unfortunately, can continue to worsen with further redness and the appearance of red blood vessels. If you leave this condition untreated, it can even result in pimples, bumps, and excess tissues.

How do I know if I have Rosacea?

Signs of Rosacea vary from patient to patient, but it is important to know the signs and symptoms to prevent further complications. First, Rosacea is not a constant redness like blushing; patients rather experience flare-ups over time. When the flare-ups occur, you may experience redness that appears more persistent and see small blood vessels or pimples. It is important to see a professional immediately, as taking over the counter acne medications can only make Rosacea worse. Additional symptoms, which are uncommon but significant, include irritated eyes, itchy, burning, or stinging skin, skin thickening or swelling, and redness on the neck, chest, or ears.

What is the treatment for Rosacea?

Treatments for Rosacea will vary from patient to patient. For example, some doctors will recommend topical treatments and medication. In some cases, lasers or pulsed light therapy is a better solution. Today, the FDA-approved Rhofade is quickly becoming the preferred treatment amongst dermatologists.

What is Rhofade?

The National Rosacea Society reports that almost 16 million adults suffer from Rosacea. Rhofade is a solution for this large group of people that can reduce redness with a one-time daily treatment. When stimulated, it acts by shrinking the blood vessels to reduce blood flow and therefore, redness on the skin.
