Procedures & Treatment
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. This condition causes areas of the face particularly the cheeks, nose, chin, eyelids, and forehead to become inflamed and red. It may present as a sensation of irritation (inflammation) with minimal redness or as red bumps. Furthermore, it can simulate Acne or Dermatitis (Eczema). It can also appear as scattered blood vessels (telangiectasias). Because this can be a chronic condition, avoidance of specific triggers may minimize flares of Rosacea. Because there can be “conflicting” needs in some patients (for example dry and irritated skin that erupts when certain moisturizers are used), evaluation is of paramount importance. Dr. Vogel will evaluate each individual’s needs and recommend a regimen that will promote balance. This will include the optimal cleanser and therapeutic program.
Our most exciting new advance is Resverité, a product originally conceived to be an anti-aging cream that has remarkable anti-inflammatory properties. We discovered that when patients used Resverité (a natural Resveratrol anti-aging compound) around the eyes (to decrease the appearance of fine lines) as well as having their fine lines improved, the patients noticed that redness and symptoms of Rosacea decreased as well. Because it decreases oxidative stress in a non-comedogenic base, it is ideally suited to decrease the inflammation so bothersome in Rosacea. Of greatest importance, patient acceptance has been huge due to the soothing application process and almost immediate results.
