Get the optimal rosacea treatment for your skin type.
The quality of your skin is one of the first things people notice about you, but when it has blemishes, it can be a great source of insecurity and a lack of confidence. For many people, rosacea leads to an undesirable look of their skin. Many dermatologists simply ‘treat’ rosacea, but don’t attempt a cure. Fortunately, with the help of Schlessinger MD, this doesn’t need to be a problem that you live with for the rest of your life. Dr. Schlessinger and his associates have performed numerous clinical research trials on this condition and have the skill and expertise to often cure it, rather than simply treating it with creams for the rest of your life.
Rosacea is an inflammatory, long-lasting skin condition that affects an estimated 16 million Americans. Symptoms might include red, flushed skin, broken blood vessels, inflammation, and red bumps that look like a breakout of acne. As rosacea progresses, the redness often starts in the center of the face and may gradually spread to the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. It also may begin to form on the ears, chest, back, and even the eyes.
There are several forms of rosacea, including papulo-pustular rosacea, blushing rosacea, telangiectatic (blood vessel) rosacea, dietary/alcohol rosacea, rhinophymatous rosacea (the type that causes a bulbous nose somewhat like comedian W.C. Fields), and mite-infestation-related rosacea. Sometimes, these are seen in combination or alone, and occasionally they change over time from one type to another.

What are some common rosacea treatment options?This condition rarely reverses itself and may come and go for years. However, undergoing treatment for rosacea early on can help bring it under control successfully. In order to treat rosacea, Dr. Schlessinger can perform IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Rejuvenation laser treatments in his Omaha clinic at Schlessinger MD. IPL treatment for rosacea gently delivers precise amounts of intense pulsed light through the skin’s surface to treat rosacea on the face, neck, and chest. LovelySkin.com also offers a broad range of rosacea skincare lines and makeup for rosacea to soothe inflamed skin, manage flare-ups, and cover redness.
“I have been involved in rosacea research for 20 years and am always excited when I can cure someone who has been to multiple other doctors for years without a resolution.”
