What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes the skin to appear inflamed and red, usually around the nose and cheeks. Rosacea can happen to almost anybody, but it's widespread among middle-aged to older women with light skin. When left untreated, rosacea can worsen over time. While there is no cure for rosacea, solutions are available to treat and minimize your symptoms. Dermatology Center of Dallas offers innovative solutions, including KTP laser treatments, to lighten the skin and minimize the symptoms of this chronic condition. If you struggle with red, swollen skin caused by rosacea, our caring team in Dallas, TX can help. We will examine your skin and develop a personalized treatment plan to keep your condition at bay.

Diagnosis and Treatment
Indicators of rosacea may vary from mild to severe, but the standard sign of rosacea is noticeable redness in the central part of the face. Other signs include visibly swollen blood vessels on the nose and cheeks, as well as small, acne-like bumps that may contain a discharge. The skin can also feel tender and hot to the touch. Roughly half of rosacea sufferers have eye issues, such as dry eye, irritation, and red, swollen eyelids. Though the specific cause of the condition is unknown, most individuals with rosacea have a family history of the condition or have suffered from bad acne.
Dermatology Center of Dallas can prescribe a number of treatments, including antibiotics, creams, and lotions. For more severe cases, we may recommend KTP laser sessions performed in our office. The KTP laser delivers gentle energy beams to target the dilated blood vessels just below the skin's surface. You may need 2 – 3 treatments to obtain your best results. Afterward, many patients notice reduced facial redness and a smoother, more even complexion.
