BEFORE - AFTER

Definition

Acne Rosacea is a chronic disorder of the skin of the face mainly, often characterised by exacerbations and remissions.

Many have observed that its onset is usually after the age of 30 years, appearing with redness on the cheeks, nose, chick or forehead, which may appear and disappear.

In certain cases, rosacea may also appear on the neck, chest, scalp or the ears.

As time goes by, redness tends to be more intense, more persistent, and with visible blood vessels. If rosacea is not treated, bumps and pimples are likely to develop, and in more severe cases, the nose may become swollen with abnormal texture due to the excess number of tissues.

In many patients with rosacea the eyes may be also affected; a sense of irritation in the eyes is evident, while the eyes may be swollen or red.

• Plaques, increased number of red patches, known as plaques, may develop with no other changes in the surrounding skin.
• Thickening of the skin, usually of the nose (rhinophyma).

How do dermatologists treat Acne Rosacea?

Although there is no permanent treatment for acne rosacea and its cause is unknown, there are medical therapies that allow the dermatologist to control or reverse its signs and symptoms.

People suspecting that they may have acne rosacea should visit a dermatologist, who can make the diagnosis and provide the right treatment for the condition.

To treat acne rosacea, the dermatologist initially identifies all the signs and symptoms of the patient’s condition. This is crucial, because different signs and symptoms should be treated differently.

Skin treatment includes:

• Medicines used for acne rosacea.
• Sun screens – Daily use can help in preventing the exacerbations of rosacea.
• Emollient lotion that will help skin repair and restoration.
• Laser and other light sources.
• Antibiotics (applied on the skin and pills).
• In any case, it is of utmost importance to avoid certain dietary habits that lead to exacerbation of acne, such as red wine, yellow cheese, etc.

The dermatologist can remove skin thickening from the nose and other parts of the face with:

• Laser.
• Dermabrasion (a procedure that removes the skin).
• Electrocautery (a procedure that transmits electric current to the skin so as to treat it).

When acne rosacea has also affected the eyes, a dermatologist can guide you to wash your eye lashes several times daily, and a medical prescription with certain medicines that are applied on the eyes. In addition, the dermatologist may also ask you to visit an eye specialist to verify if ocular rosacea is present.
