Rockville, MD gives an alternative to medication for rosacea
Rosacea is a common problem seen by dermatologists in the Rockville, MD area including Dr. Ron Prussick and associates of Washington Dermatology Center. Our practice works with patients of all ages who have suffered from this condition and are seeking relief.
Because the symptoms and complications of rosacea are different from one patient to another, it is important for patients to consider a variety of treatment methods that best suits their body’s response to treatment as well as their lifestyle. Medication is commonly used for rosacea and typically is administered as a topical cream. Some patients may benefit as well from oral medication that can be taken to address bumps, pimples, redness, and flushing often associated with rosacea.
Outside of medications, patients may also benefit from laser therapies. Laser therapies can help in removing visible blood vessels, redness, and disfigurement of the nose that can occur in more severe cases. Issues with the eyes can be treated with ophthalmic therapy if necessary. Laser treatments can be done regularly to reduce the signs and symptoms of rosacea especially when they are severe enough to result in self-consciousness. These procedures are relatively comfortable and patients will find that they provide faster, more effective results for dramatic improvement.
Patients who have rosacea should also document their lifestyle to determine what their specific triggers may be. Triggers are often environmental, so learning what causes a flare-up is the best way to avoid them. Patients should also take good care of their skin with a gentle regimen of cleansers and cosmetics that can reduce the appearance of rosacea and improve self-confidence.
