There is Help for Your Rosacea

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

If you are reading this as a rosacea sufferer, you are probably desperate for help. Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that usually worsens over time and is often characterized by relapses and remissions. Many people may find themselves frustrated at trying to alleviate embarrassing and disruptive rosacea symptoms. However, professional dermatologic treatments, such as laser therapy, combined with lifestyle changes to avoid triggers gives sufferers the best chance for controlling rosacea.

Symptoms

Rosacea is characterized by a red flushing that is seen primarily on the cheeks and nose, but can also be found on the chin, forehead, chest and back. The specific symptoms of rosacea largely depend on the specific type you have.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, Rosacea has four subtypes:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: redness, flushing, with visible blood vessels
  • Papulopustular rosacea: redness, swelling and acne-like breakouts
  • Phymatous rosacea: skin thickens and has a bumpy texture
  • Ocular rosacea: eyes are red and irritated and eyelids can become swollen

Triggers

While there is still not a definite known cause of rosacea, there are some common triggers that cause rosacea symptoms to flare up. Learning what triggers your specific rosacea episodes and avoiding those factors can dramatically help you control this skin condition.

Here are some rosacea triggers factors to be aware of:

  • Hot weather
  • Emotional stress
  • Spicy foods and drinks
  • Exercise
  • Wind
  • Hot baths

Treatment

Laser therapy has proven to be a successful rosacea treatment. Olansky Dermatology Associates proudly offers advanced laser therapy to remove visible blood vessels and reduce redness. This therapy works by emitting wavelengths of light that target tiny blood vessels just under the skin. Heat from the laser’s energy builds in the vessels, causing them to disintegrate.

While not every rosacea case is the same, it is important that sufferers realize there is help available. A dermatologist can also recommend daily skin care regimens that will minimize rosacea, such as using a gentle facial cleanser, rinsing with lukewarm water and applying sunscreen.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
