Houston, Spring & The Woodlands Rosacea Treatment
Rosacea is a skin disorder that may affect as many as 45 to 50 million people worldwide and approximately 14 million people in the United States alone. The condition is primarily characterized by inflammation and reddening of the facial skin. It commonly occurs on and around the nose, cheeks, forehead, chin, eyelids, and occasionally on the neck and upper chest.
The redness sometimes progresses to visible vessels, swollen bumps, called papules, or pus-filled bumps, called pustules, that are often mistaken for adult acne, and in some cases, thickened skin that results in a red, bulbous nose. Most people with rosacea don’t even realize they have it and are not treating it. Although the red facial skin is harmless, the red-faced appearance often causes people with rosacea to be unhappy with their appearance.
