Rosacea And Sunspot Treatment Q & A

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition featuring flushed red skin, acne-like bumps, and prominent tiny blood vessels. The most common sites for rosacea are the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Rosacea is most common in fair-skinned women over 30, but it can affect anyone. 

What are sunspots?

Sunspots are blotches of brown pigment on your skin. As the name implies, sunspots tend to develop because of sun exposure. Sunspots commonly appear in the face, backs of the hands, and shoulders. They’re most common in middle age and are often a result of many years of sun exposure. 

When might I need rosacea and sunspot treatment?

Rosacea and sunspots are both harmless in terms of medical dangers. They’re noncancerous and unlikely to damage your bodywide physical health. However, rosacea and sunspots can really mar your natural beauty, which is very distressing for many people. And, rosacea can cause persistent itching.

If you’re unhappy about the appearance of your skin, have uncomfortable symptoms like itching, or if you have a sunspot that changes in size, shape, or color, it’s time to schedule a checkup at Dermatology Arts.  

What does rosacea and sunspot treatment involve?

Dermatology Arts tailors your rosacea and sunspot treatment for your particular condition and needs. 

Rosacea

With rosacea, trigger management is particularly important. The Dermatology Arts team can help you to identify the substances or situations that tend to trigger rosacea flare-ups. Rosacea treatment can also include medications, such as topical creams and oral antibiotics. 

In many cases of rosacea, light-based treatments, such as the Vbeam Perfecta® from Candela®, can effectively target rosacea redness and dilated veins to clear your skin. 

Sunspots

There are a number of treatment options for sunspots, including topical fading creams, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, cryotherapy, and light-based treatments such as Starlux™ intense pulsed light (IPL) and MedLite®. 

With both rosacea and sunspot treatment, managing your sun exposure is vital. The Dermatology Arts team can recommend measures to keep your skin clear after treatment, such as using quality sunscreen, pharmaceutical-grade skin care, and trigger management. 

At Dermatology Arts, the team believes in evidence-based solutions for rosacea and sunspots. To learn more about how proven treatment can help you, call the office or book an appointment online now.
