Rosacea is a painful skin condition that causes large red patches on the skin, accompanied by red pustules and boils. The boils resemble acne and leave behind deep scars. The condition starts at the nose or the cheeks and may spread across the rest of the face, neck, and body. Those living with this problem may experience a great deal of pain and embarrassment. Currently, there is no permanent cure available for the condition. However, you can relieve the symptoms and the discomfort by visiting a qualified dermatologist for treatment. Our team of medical professionals, led by Dr. Kia, are experienced veterans in treating rosacea. Visit our Los Angeles, CA office for an appointment and speak with our staff about your personalized treatment.
What Causes Rosacea?
More often than not, rosacea shows up when a person’s immune system is altered in some way. The main issue responsible for the appearance of the characteristic redness and skin bumps is a peptide-protein called cathelicidin. When a lot of this peptide is produced, the skin becomes inflamed and begins to develop enlarged vessels along with irritation. This immune response may be triggered by genetic factors, environmental factors, or a combination of both. Rosacea is a multi-factored condition and is therefore difficult to adequately diagnose.
Symptoms of Rosacea
Rosacea can be very mild or extremely severe. Depending on the nature of your condition, Dr. Kia will create a customized treatment plan that will help reduce the appearance of rosacea on your face and will give you beautiful, healthy, and youthful skin. The symptoms of rosacea can include:
