Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes an individual to blush or become flushed more easily. There are different types of Rosacea that can cause additional side effects such as swelling, broken blood vessels, acne-like breakouts, or changed texture of the skin.
While the exact cause of Rosacea remains elusive, ongoing research has pointed to several potential contributing factors. Genetic predisposition, the presence of bacteria such as Bacillus Oleronius, H. Pylori Infection, heightened Demodex activity—a benign mite that resides on everyone’s skin—and abnormalities in the body’s protein processing have emerged as key clues in understanding its origins
Although Rosacea is a recurring skin condition and there is no permanent cure there are many ways to keep it under control and reduce flare-ups. A provider will work with the individual to find the root source of the flare-ups and work to get it under control with a series of treatments that may include but are not limited to skin care, laser resurfacing, and microneedling.
