ROSACEA TREATMENT

Definition:
Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition characterized by reddening, pimples and/or swelling of the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead.  Often in the beginning stages, the cheeks and areas beside the nose look sunburned or "rosy."  After some years at  this stage, the disease process advances and the patient will develop small vessels called "telangiectasias" in the affected area. 

At this stage, the overall redness can be broken down into two components:  the "flushed", "rosy" area around the cheeks and nose and the tiny red blood vessels that have developed in this same area.  With this in mind, Dr. Baker has developed an effective two part strategy for treating rosacea (see below).

In about 50% of diagnosed cases, rosacea appears in middle adulthood (30 to 50 years of age). There is no cure for rosacea, but it can be effectively managed and controlled through proper treatment.

Left untreated, severe cases of rosacea can lead to enlarged pores and distorted facial features, often characterized by bumps and thickened skin on the nose (rhinophyma).

Treatment:

Traditional treatments include topical and oral antibiotics, and avoidance of "triggers"(see more about rosacea at Rosacea.org)

Dr. Baker has a particular interest in this disease because he suffers from it himself.  After some years of trying all the traditional antibiotic therapies ,topical creams, and natural products he has developed a two part strategy for treating rosacea. 

First, he found an all natural skin care line that really calms the redness and it does not have the dry, flaking effect on the skin that topical antibiotic creams or gels have.  The product is "physician only" product made by physiodermie for medical skin problems. 

 Second, now that the redness is under control, Dr. Baker has the perfect solution for the small facial vessels that have developed (see Facial Vessels)

Using this two part treatment is very easy because Dr. Baker can treat your small facial vessels with the laser and send you home with the physiodermie physician only product in the same visit!
