Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory dermatological condition that typically affects the face. It can worsen over time if left untreated and is often mistaken for acne, eczema or another skin allergy. While there is no cure for rosacea, there are various treatments that can relieve the signs and symptoms.
Your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes and topical medications to reduce inflammation and redness. Oral antibiotics are also sometimes prescribed depending on the severity of the condition. For patients with visible blood vessels, laser treatment can be used to shrink them. Dermedica can provide laser type treatment for rosacea in our clinic for patients throughout Perth.
