Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects over 2 million Canadians and can have many negative psychological effects including lowered self-esteem and self-confidence.
Rosacea typically affects adults between the age of 30 and 50. While both men and women are affected, women tend to be more
susceptible to the condition, while men tend to experience more severe cases. Rosacea can affect all skin types and skin colours,
but it is most commonly seen in those with fair skin and most commonly affects the face.
Rosacea can be seen as frequent flushing or blushing, constant redness, red lines due to enlarged blood vessels, dry skin, uncomfortable burning or itching skin, or pimple-like bumps without blackheads or whiteheads. While the cause of rosacea has not been determined, some factors such as immune system functionality, family history, sun exposure and skin tone are believed to be contributors.
There is no cure for rosacea, but it can be controlled with appropriate treatments. SkinStudioMD offers several treatment options to help manage the symptoms of rosacea so you can get back to living your life.
