Whether your facial redness from rosacea is permanent or comes and goes, you do not have to live with it. Here at Regeneris Boston, we specialize in the treatment of rosacea signs and symptoms. Discover the answers to some of the common questions surrounding rosacea treatment.
What Causes Rosacea?
The precise cause of rosacea is not yet known, but there are many theories. Some experts believe triggers, such as environmental and lifestyle factors, increase the redness response. Such factors may include psychological factors, irritated follicles, increased blood flow near the surface of the skin, skin bacteria, and microscopic skin mites, such as Demodex.
What are the Most Common Triggers for Rosacea?
A survey conducted by the National Rosacea Society determined the most common triggers include extreme exercise, hot beverages, harsh skin care products, hot baths, spicy foods, wind, emotional stress, and hot or cold weather.
Is Avoiding Triggers Effective?
A survey of 1,221 individuals who suffer from rosacea found a 96% success rate in reducing flare-ups after identifying personal trigger factors.
Are There Rosacea Treatment Options Available?
While rosacea cannot be cured, there are several effective rosacea treatment methods available. Each treatment is tailored to the individual because symptoms vary by individual. Patients concerned with pimples or bumps, eye rosacea, or thickening skin may be given prescriptions for topical and oral rosacea therapy. Topical therapy can also minimize facial redness.
In extreme cases, other procedures may be used to minimize significant redness, correct a disfigured nose, or remove visible blood vessels. Furthermore, you may be advised to identify and avoid triggers that may exacerbate your condition. This may be avoiding excessive sun exposure or using gentle cosmetics on your face.
