Rosacea is a chronic and common, yet largely misunderstood inflammatory skin condition affecting more than 415 million people globally. Common signs of rosacea include persistent facial redness, inflammation, dull/dry skin, telangiectasia (“spider veins”), excess oil, and/or premature aging.
Although rosacea can affect all segments of the population and all skin types, fair-skinned individuals are believed to be the most at risk. Rosacea is more frequently diagnosed in women, but tends to be more severe in men. This condition may develop at any age, but for most, it typically presents around age 30 as flushing or redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that comes and goes. If left untreated, inflammatory bumps and pimples often develop and the nose may grow swollen and bumpy from excess tissue. Fifty percent of patients’ eyes are also affected, feeling irritated and appearing watery and/or bloodshot.
Often times, people mistake rosacea for acne and attempt to treat it accordingly – they are unsuccessful as these two conditions respond to different therapies. It is recommended that individuals who suspect they may have rosacea seek medical care for a proper diagnosis and immediate treatment before the condition becomes more severe. To assist you in advancing your skin health regimen, we at OBI will formulate an individualized at-home skin health regimen with ZO® Skin Health products.
The cause of rosacea remains unknown and there is no cure; however, it may be managed and minimized with careful skincare, lifestyle changes, and/or prescription medications. For the most severe cases of rosacea, your provider may recommend: oral medication, photodynamic therapy (PDT), intense pulsed light (IPL), or laser treatments. With the right combination of therapies and/or skincare products, symptoms of rosacea can be controlled and optimal skin health restored.
A key component in any rosacea treatment involves recognizing and avoiding potential triggers. These vary from person to person, but often include: extreme heat or cold, sun exposure, alcohol, spicy foods, and stress. [Recommendation: keep a daily log to help identify your possible rosacea triggers.]
