What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by flushing or redness of the face, red bumps similar to acne, or thickening of the skin of the nose. While distinct vessels can be part of the condition, the common background redness is generally caused by vessels too small to individually be seen.


Treatment of rosacea varies and depends on the severity, Mild cases are often just covered with cosmetic products. In more severe cases, topical or oral medication may be of help, certain prescription vitamin preparations may be used, or light based treatments like BBL help treat and reverse already existing redness.

Rosacea treatment is not curative, but rather aimed at lessening the amount of redness and inflammatory lesions, decreasing the number and duration of the lesions and relieving the tenderness, burning and itching that accompanies rosacea.

People suffering from rosacea should contact. Dr. Roya Javid for a consultation and discussion regarding treatment methods she uses to alleviate rosacea and allow her to provide a more pleasant appearance to their skin and relieve the uncomfortable symptoms.
