ROSACEA

Rosacea Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai

Rosacea is a common, long-term skin condition that causes redness, papules, and swelling on the face. Often referred to as adult acne, it frequently begins as a tendency to flush or blush easily. The condition rarely reverses itself, and can become worse without treatment. 

About 50% of people with rosacea also have eye involvement (ocular rosacea). Rosacea can, however, be treated and controlled if medical advice is sought in the early stages.

Signs and symptoms of rosacea include:

  • Burning and stinging sensations
  • Permanent redness
  • Inflammatory lesions (papules and pustules)
  • Small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible)
  • Tissue hyperplasia (excessive cell growth) leading to nodules

 

COMMON TRIGGERS OF ROSACEA INCLUDE:

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Stress
  • Exercise
  • Cold weather (wind)
  • Heat
  • Menopause
  • Certain medications, such as vasodilator drugs
  • Hot drinks
  • Alcohol and caffeine
  • Eating certain foods, spicy food in particular
