Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic (long term) skin condition that causes redness, pimples, visible blood vessels and occasionally swelling and flushing (blushing).

Rosacea can affect women and men. It primarily affects the face but sometimes the eyes are involved.

Early diagnosis and treatment can stop rosacea from progressing. If allowed to progress, rosacea may become much more difficult to treat.

Dr Millar’s rosacea treatments involve specific blood vessel constricting creams, anti-inflammatory creams and oral antibiotics/ Vitamin A (retinoid) treatment for more severe cases.

Dr Millar’s laser treatments restrict progression of blood vessel growth in rosacea. Laser treatment can help treat any thickening occuring on men’s noses with rosacea.
