Rosacea can be more than just red, rosy cheeks. It can cause men and women to feel self-conscious, and it can also affect their quality of life. People suffering from rosacea may be hesitant to get out and enjoy themselves because of the redness that is covering their facial appearance. Let’s explore how Ariel Ostad MD PC can help you live a life with more confidence!

Am I Blushing, or Is That Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition that affects both men and women. Blushing across the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin area are the most common indications that you are dealing with rosacea and not just a flushed face. Rosacea comes and goes, but it can also become permanent over time. It is important to know your triggers of when you may experience flare ups. Spicy foods, extreme temperatures, stress, and alcohol are just some triggers that people experience when dealing with this common skin condition.

What Are the Symptoms?

Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Ostad will help to confirm whether or not you have rosacea, but if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then you may be on the right track for treatment:

  • Redness 
  • A burning or stinging feeling when using water or skincare products
  • Tiny broken blood vessels that do not go away
  • Small, pink or red bumps sometimes filled with white/yellow liquid
  • Patches of rough, dry skin
  • Large pores
  • Spots that look like acne
  • Sensitive skin

So Long, Rosy Life!

Dr. Ariel Ostad can help you say goodbye to your rosy life with rosacea. Topical products, CUTERA®’s excel® V and Laser Genesis™, and oral antibiotics can all help reduce inflammation and redness to prevent rosacea from progressing. During your evaluation, you will discuss your goals and desires, and a personalized treatment plan will be made to treat your rosacea, giving you a clearer complexion and more confidence without having to hide your redness.
