It is estimated that approximately 16 million people in America have Rosacea. Although this condition is treated by both medical and cosmetic means, it is important to understand all aspects of the condition in order to effectively control the symptoms. Correct assessment and treatment by your Dermatologist as soon as symptoms appear is very important. Left untreated, the symptoms of Rosacea will become more severe. The sooner the symptoms are addressed, the better the chances of achieving good results from treatment.

Once the condition has been treated medically, cosmetic treatments can be used to effectively reduce the visible signs of the condition such as facial redness and capillaries. BBL™ PhotoFacial is the treatment of choice for this condition and can be considered a wise investment in the long term outcome of Rosacea.
Appropriate skin care is essential for the management of Rosacea. Rejuvené Gentle Skin Care Products are specifically formulated for this condition. The premier ingredient, Green Tea, not only provides a powerful antioxidant, but soothes and calms irritated and inflamed skin. A sunblock with SPF30 and Vitamin C is also included in this line, providing crucial protection from harmful rays of the sun.
There is no known cure for Rosacea. Even though it is considered a chronic and progressive disorder, there are many things that can be done to effectively control the signs and symptoms on a long term basis. The course of the disease is unpredictable and can vary in every individual. However, with proper treatment and the avoidance of certain factors, it is possible to enjoy long remissions of symptoms.
