Rosacea is a common skin condition that often begins with a noticeable tendency to blush or flush more easily than others.

There are different types of Rosacea, however, most are characterized by excess redness of the face caused by broken capillaries, in conjunction with acne-type bumps. It is most often found on the nose, cheeks, forehead,  and chin, but can also appear on the ears, chest, and back.

About Rosacea


Rosacea is a skin condition that affects the appearance of your face that usually develops
slowly and can continue to get worse over time. It first appears as redness in the form of flushing or
blushing, appearing on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead.

As rosacea first develops, the symptoms tend to come and go. Rosacea often begins as a tendency to flush or blush easily.
At the onset, symptoms are usually confined to the center of the face, but over time, rosacea
can involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.

Dr. Alanen may choose to treat your Rosacea condition with prescription medication, topical
medicine, an emollient to help repair the skin, lasers or light-based laser treatments.

• Improve rosacea and acne
• Improve fine blood vessels and skin flushing
• Reduce bumps

Some people have rosacea flare-ups for life. Treatment can prevent rosacea from getting
worse. Treatment also can reduce the acne-like breakouts, redness, and the number of flareups.
To get the best results, and maintain your treatment use skincare products with medical
grade ingredients and use mineral sunscreen.
