Know Your Skin: Facts about Rosacea

Rosacea treatment in Houston TexasAn estimated 16 million Americans have rosacea, yet only a small fraction of these clients are being treated. Although the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, various theories about the disorder’s origin have evolved over the years. Some of these include:

  • Facial blood vessels may dilate too easily, and the increased blood near the skin surface makes the skin appear red and flushed.
  • Lifestyle and environmental factors can increase this redness response. Exercise, Alcohol, Spicy Foods, Overly Stressed)
  • Acne-like bumps may appear, often in the redder area of the central face. This may be due to factors related to blood flow, skin bacteria, over production of microscopic skin mites (Demodex), irritation of follicles, sun damage of the connective tissue under the skin, an abnormal immune or inflammatory response, or psychological factors.
