If you’re one of the many people suffering from rosacea, you know it’s more than just a facial redness.

If you’re looking for an effective rosacea treatment in Boca Raton, Sanctuary Medical Center is a leading treatment center.

We have several treatments available, but not every treatment will work for everyone. You may need to try a few treatments before finding one that works well for you. Keep in mind that rosacea is a chronic condition, so don’t expect cures overnight – but with patience and perseverance, you can manage your rosacea symptoms effectively.

 

Effective Relief for Rosacea

Do you suffer from Rosacea? You’re not alone. In fact, over 16 million Americans do. And while there is no cure for Rosacea, the good news is that it can be effectively managed so that you can enjoy your life without its embarrassing and sometimes painful symptoms. Here at Sanctuary Medical Center in Boca Raton, our team of expert physicians and aestheticians offers the latest and most effective Rosacea treatments to minimize your symptoms.

 

WHAT IS ROSACEA?

Rosacea is a common skin disorder in which the blood vessels in the face become enlarged, causing the skin to look red and flushed. Over time, this condition often occurs on the cheeks and nose but can appear on the forehead and chin. For those with more severe cases of rosacea, ruddy skin, pimple-like bumps and even a more bulbous nose may develop if left untreated. Dermatologists rate a patient’s severity of rosacea in grades from one to four with four being the worst.

 

WHAT CAUSES ROSACEA?

While there is no known cause for rosacea, it is more likely to occur in fair-skinned people who easily blush. Additionally, inflammation flare-ups often occur after eating spicy hot foods or drinking alcohol. There is no way to prevent rosacea nor is it contagious. It is a skin disorder that often may affect those who suffer from it emotionally more than physically.

 

What Are The Common Symptoms of Rosacea?

If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, you may be one of the millions of Americans who have Rosacea:

  • Frequent Blushing or Flushing
  • Persistent Redness in the Central Portion of Your Face
  • Small, Visible Blood Vessels on Your Face
  • Bumps or Pimples on Your Face
  • Watery, Bloodshot, or Itchy Eyes
  • Dryness and Scaliness of the Skin
  • Burning, Stinging, or Itching Sensation on Your Face
  • Thickening of the Skin on Your Face

 

At Sanctuary Medical, We Can Help

Our expert team at Sanctuary Medical Center in Boca Raton creates a custom rosacea treatment plan based on the severity of your condition. We offer medical and cosmetic treatments to help clear your skin and regain your confidence.

To treat rosacea, we begin by evaluating your skin to determine the severity of your condition and the best course of action for treatment. This often involves using laser treatments, at-home treatments, or prescription medications. Sometimes, our dermatologist recommends combining treatments to significantly diminish and even remove the redness.

Our laser treatments involve using two systems — the Excel V and AeroLase LightPod Neo systems. Each system is designed to use laser energy to target the specific blood vessels that cause the rosacea while not affecting the surrounding tissues.

In terms of prescription drugs, we may treat you with antibiotics like doxycycline, tetracycline, or minocycline, along with a topical antibiotic cream such as metronidazole and Vitamin A type medications.

It is important to note that although rosacea sometimes looks like acne, it is not acne and may not improve using acne medications.
