 What is Rosacea? 

 Rosacea is a medical skin condition that typically affects the central face in fair skinned women age 30-50 years old.  It can present with flushing, redness, “broken capillaries” or dilated vessels, pustules or papules (red bumps that look like acne), skin irritation, a bulbous nose (enlarged red nose typically in men only) or a combination of symptoms.  There are varying degrees of Rosacea so it may not always present in the same manner. It is one of the most common conditions that we treat. 


 What are the Treatment Options for Acne Rosacea at 4D Skin Care Clinic? 

 At 4D Skin, our most common treatment for Rosacea is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photorejuvenation.  Clients are pleased with the rapid improvement in the redness, flushing, and “broken capillaries” or dilated vessels. Fractional Radio Frequency is another treatment of choice which travels deeper into the skin and can constrict deeper, dilated vessels. A consultation will determine which treatment or combination of treatments is optimal for the client.
