A common skin condition affecting about 13 million people in the U.S., rosacea is a collection of redness, pimples and enlarged blood vessels on the face. Though this condition is known to be rooted in the vascular system, the exact cause is undetermined. Rosacea usually develops in middle age and affects more women than men. Certain "triggers" can often be identified in individuals that, if avoided, help minimize the condition. Left untreated, rosacea can eventually result in permanent broken blood vessels on the face, blotchy redness and permanent skin texture changes. With an appropriate rosacea treatment, however, our Naperville and Joliet, IL patients often find they can minimize their current symptoms and keep the condition from worsening.
