Rosacea is a common type of skin condition that causes blood vessels on the face to be visible and a flushing of redness to appear. In some cases, rosacea can also cause small, pus-filled, red bumps. There is no cure for rosacea, but there are options to treat and control the symptoms of rosacea and help reduce flare-ups. We offer rosacea treatment in Palo Alto.
Rosacea clients might experience these flare-ups for weeks or even months at a time, causing not only redness but also a ruddiness to the skin and exacerbation of other skin conditions such as acne. An enlarged nose that looks bulbous, also known as rhinophyma, can happen in untreated rosacea over time. This occurs when the sebaceous glands of the nose and cheeks enlarge and a buildup of tissue occurs. Rosacea can also cause eye problems when ocular rosacea occurs, leading the way to irritated, swollen, dry eyes, and eyelids.
Who is Affected:
Rosacea can happen to anyone-men and women, but middle-aged women with fairer skin are more likely to experience it. It isn’t typically dangerous unless ocular rosacea occurs, but rosacea can be frustrating and may decrease self-esteem.

Vbeam Perfecta is a pulsed dye laser that sends fast bursts of light to the treatment site. Once the light touches the skin, it turns into heat that is absorbed by targeted blood vessels.
Reducing rosacea flare-ups and the severity of flare-ups requires a two-pronged approach: knowing and avoiding your triggers and minimizing flare-ups with laser and other treatments. Adopting a proactive approach to your rosacea can help keep flare-ups in check and give you back your confidence.
