Acne-Rosacea 2 wellesley premier dermatology

Acne/Rosacea Treatments:

Rosacea is a relatively common medical condition marked by reddish skin that is most noticeable across the cheeks. In some cases, rosacea may also cause small, red bumps filled with pus that resemble acne. The condition comes in “flares” that may last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months before disappearing completely or fading significantly for a while. Many people who have rosacea mistake it for acne, as well. Though the cause of rosacea is unknown, dermatologists are aware of several potential triggers that may lead to flares. These include things like hot or spicy food, alcoholic beverages, exposure to sun and/or wind, certain medications, cosmetics, and even exercise, among others.

Light-skinned women who are over the age of 30 and who have a family history of rosacea are most likely to develop it. Rosacea treatments can vary, but since the cause is unknown, the treatments focus on controlling the signs and symptoms. There are topical medications that can help to relieve the redness and irritation, and when the pus-filled bumps become problematic, antibiotics can be a tremendous help. Oral acne drugs may also be utilized. Aside from medications, Premier Dermatology also utilizes a variety of laser and light-based therapies that can drastically reduce the redness associated with rosacea.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
