Rosacea is one of the most common skin conditions, with approximately 16 million Americans currently suffering from its effects. Rosacea is a disease that causes the facial skin to appear red, blotchy, bumpy, and irritated. Despite being a common skin condition, chronic rosacea can have a profound impact on personal appearance and self-esteem. A recent survey by the National Rosacea Society found that 90 percent of rosacea patients said their rosacea lowered their self-confidence and negatively affected their social and professional interactions.
Red spots can arise from leaked capillaries and may sometimes appear in clusters like a rash. Blood vessels and spider veins (small, purplish, web-like veins) that have expanded or burst due to excess pressure may become raised and visible through the skin.
Dr. Bitter recommends the FotoFacial® for treating each of these conditions. While rosacea has no cure, broadband light therapy with the FotoFacial® procedure can minimize and control its appearance. This innovative light-based treatment can dramatically improve skin tone and minimize flushing, broken capillaries, blood vessels, and overall redness in the face. With this treatment, patients can have a more even, refreshed, and healthy-looking complexion.
