How Do You Treat Rosacea?
At Skin Dermatology, Dr. Lamoureux knows the signs and symptoms of rosacea vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must therefore be tailored by a physician for each individual case. Some patients are troubled by redness and flushing, while others have bumps and pimples, thickening of the skin, or eye rosacea or combinations. For patients with bumps and pimples, doctors often prescribe oral and topical rosacea therapy.
Did you know that a topical therapy to reduce facial redness is now available a well? Although not typically covered by insurance, when appropriate, laser treatments are highly effective in removing visible blood vessels and extensively reducing the redness. At Skin Dermatology in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts we operate lasers that can be used to help control your redness.
Dr. Alissa Lamoureux provides her rosacea patients a treatment plan which includes ways to identify and avoid lifestyle and environmental factors that may aggravate their individual conditions, as well as a skin care plan centered on ways to reduce the effect of rosacea on appearance.
