Rosacea in Tucson, AZ
Eliminate Facial Redness and Flushing
Approximately 20 percent of Americans suffer from facial burning, stinging, itching, and sometimes pimples caused by rosacea. Tucson women and men can find relief from these conditions by seeking treatment with one of our dermatologists. In addition to the physical sensation and acne-like lesions, the condition is associated with flushing due to inflammation of the blood vessels of the cheeks, chin, and nose, causing them to dilate too easily. This, in turn, makes the skin appear red.
Rosacea is a chronic condition with no known cure, but there are several treatment options that can significantly reduce symptoms and improve the patient's overall quality of life. Specifically, oral and topical therapies have produced positive results. Dermatologists are still struggling to pinpoint what causes this condition, although there are many common exacerbating influences such as alcohol and/or spicy food consumption, sun exposure, caffeine intake, and irritants in facial products. Hereditary factors may also be a contributing factor. With the help of one of our providers, patients can identify triggers and develop methods for avoiding or mitigating these triggers.
