- Rosacea is a genetically-influenced condition characterized by a range of signs and symptoms from facial flushing to acne-like bumps to dilated blood vessels on the face.
- Dr. Sherber is expert at distinguishing rosacea from the conditions that can mimic it.
- Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea can be missed if someone thinks that they merely have sensitive skin that stings and flushes easily. Early diagnosis is key to preventing longterm skin changes.
- Rosacea that involves either episodic or constant inflammatory bumps on the face can be mistaken for acne, and made worse by acne treatments.
- Periorifical dermatitis, which involves inflammatory bumps around the mouth, nose, or eyes, is a sub-type of rosacea which is often aggravated by misdiagnosis and misuse of topical steroids.
- Sometimes, skin can be aggravated by external irritants such as skincare or makeup products, which can mimic rosacea but requires different treatment.
- Laser treatments such as Laser Genesis and Nd:YAG can fade Redness and Visible Veins.
- Laser-assisted delivery of anti-inflammatory active ingredients using the Perméa laser can produce significant improvements in skin’s appearance and reactivity.
