Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that is most commonly seen in people with light skin, particularly those of Celtic descent. While it is more prevalent among women, it tends to be more severe in men. Rosacea usually affects people in their 30s or 40s and fluctuates in severity until it clears up later in life. Rosacea is rarely seen in elderly people.

Rosacea usually begins as small, raised red spots on the nose, forehead, cheeks, or chin. These spots often appear in groups of two or three and persist for about two weeks before they flatten and fade. As soon as one set of spots clears, another set starts to appear.
Without treatment, these flare-ups will continue, typically in response to certain triggers, until a noticeable redness has spread across the center of the face. After rosacea spots have resolved, redness in the area can persist for months or even years. In addition to spots, individuals with rosacea tend to redden or flush easily in response to changes in temperature, certain foods, and alcohol.
For the majority of rosacea sufferers, the main concern is diffuse redness across the face. However, some individuals will experience more severe effects. Ocular rosacea can affect the eyes and eyelids, causing redness, irritation, light sensitivity, and blurry vision. Rosacea can cause the skin to thicken and form irregular nodes on the skin. This can occur on the chin, nose, cheeks, eyelids, and forehead and can cause serious disfigurement. In rare cases, the nose may become dramatically enlarged, requiring surgery to correct.
If you have rosacea, it is very important that you identify any triggers that worsen your condition. Avoiding these triggers when possible can help reduce the frequency of flare-ups and prevent the condition from progressing to a more advanced stage. Examples of common rosacea triggers include:
We recommend that our Los Angeles patients keep a journal to record changes in their skin and possible triggers that may have caused them.
Although the Icon laser treatment for rosacea needs to be customized for each patient’s requirements, it is regarded as generally safe. Patients may experience mild side-effects, including:

The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, although it’s believed that there are environmental and genetic factors that influence this condition. That said, there are many factors that may trigger a rosacea breakout, like cosmetic products, sunlight, alcohol, stress, and spicy foods.
There are different methods available to treat rosacea, but the best alternative will depend on each patient’s unique case. In order to identify the best long-term treatment, you should consult with a double board-certified cosmetic medicine expert in your area.
While flare-ups may recede, rosacea symptoms can manifest throughout the whole duration of a patient’s life. Individual flare-ups can last anywhere between a few hours and a month, but most breakouts last around one week.
In the vast majority of cases, rosacea symptoms don’t recede on their own. Breakouts may be temporary, but patients can experience more frequent flare-ups if they don’t address the condition. In these cases, the best alternative is to consult with a skin care specialist with a proven track record.
While stress itself is not the root cause of rosacea, it can produce frequent flare-ups that range from mild to severe. Patients that avoid stressful environments tend to experience fewer breakouts, so minimizing tension is a great way to control rosacea symptoms.
