Often mistaken for acne, psoriasis and eczema, rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition primarily affecting the face and is characterized by excessive facial blushing (redness) and small, red, pus-filled bumps resembling acne. Though the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, there are numerous triggering factors that can exacerbate the condition.
Patients with rosacea have reported low self-esteem, low self-confidence and decreased social interactions. Improvement of the clinical symptoms of rosacea can drastically improve patients emotional well-being and quality of life. Left untreated, rosacea tends to worsen over time. While there is no permanent cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. We at True Essence Skin and Laser combine FDA approved Venus Viva RF treatment with prescriptive medications and lifestyle changes to ensure an effective outcome and reduction of the signs and symptoms of rosacea.
