Rosacea

Rosacea is a common disorder of the facial skin that affects an estimated 14 million Americans. Rosacea can cause significant psychological, social and occupational challenges if left untreated because of its red-faced, acne-like appearance.

Common symptoms include:

  • Diffuse redness and enlarged pores on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead
  • Small visible blood vessels on the cheeks, nose and chin
  • Pimples or pustules on the face
