Rosacea

Conveniently Located to Serve Houston and the Greater Houston Area

Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects nearly 16 million Americans, often causing red, bumpy, and thickened skin on the nose, cheeks, or other areas of the face. At Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, our board-certified dermatologists offer advanced treatment options to reduce symptoms and improve the appearance of your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a benign skin condition characterized by redness and inflammation on the face, chest, or neck. It typically affects adults between ages 30 and 50, with a higher prevalence in light-skinned individuals and those of Scandinavian descent. Triggers for rosacea flare-ups may include alcohol consumption, spicy foods, weather changes, intense emotions, sun or wind exposure, and certain cosmetics.

How do I know if I have rosacea?

Many people with rosacea are unaware of their condition. Common symptoms may include redness on the nose or cheeks, visible blood vessels, thickening of the skin, and swollen red bumps. Rosacea can also lead to eye discomfort, including dryness, irritation, and swollen eyelids.

What are my treatment options for rosacea?

The board-certified dermatologists and aesthetics team at Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery offer various treatment options to manage rosacea, including oral medications, topical ointments, and laser or light therapy. These treatments aim to reduce redness, clear the skin, and prevent flare-ups. While there is no cure for rosacea, timely treatment can prevent worsening of the condition and potential complications such as rhinophyma, a buildup of tissue due to enlargement of oil glands in the nose and cheeks.

What can I do to prevent flares?

In addition to medical management, our dermatologists recommend taking steps at home to prevent rosacea flare-ups. This includes avoiding triggers, wearing daily sunblock, using gentle skincare products, and washing eyelids several times a day if affected.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of rosacea or need help managing your condition, contact Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery to schedule an appointment with our skincare experts. We’re dedicated to providing effective solutions to improve your skin health and enhance your quality of life.
