Rosacea is a skin condition that causes red patches and swelling across your face, forehead, scalp, neck, ears, back and/or eyes. Not only can rosacea be a bit uncomfortable, it can also make a person feel extremely self-conscious. And although there is no cure for rosacea, Dr. Barry Goldman offers several treatment options depending on the severity of your rosacea, your current health condition, and your skin type. When you come in to visit Dr. Barry Goldman for your rosacea he will conduct a physical examination of your skin. During your examination, Dr. Goldman will not only be looking at the severity of your rosacea but for any other skin abnormalities as well. From a simple topical cream to laser surgery, this article will discuss your rosacea treatment options. Read on to learn more.

Topical Cream

Depending on the severity of your rosacea,  the first treatment option that Dr. Barry Goldman will likely recommend is a topical cream or ointment. By applying the medicated cream to clean skin as recommended, the topical cream will primarily help to clear up any bumps, inflammation, or topical concerns associated with your rosacea. Just like with any sort of antibiotic, however, it’s important that you use your topical cream on a regular basis— the longer you use it, the better the results you will have.

Laser Treatment

If you don’t have any success using a topical cream or ointment, Dr. Barry Goldman may recommend that you try getting a laser treatment in order to help with your rosacea. By using either Pulse Dye Lasers (PDL) or Intense Pulse Lasers (IPL) you can target the rosacea at a deeper level— clearing up redness, inflammation, and any associated bumps.

Although rosacea isn’t yet curable, with either the use of topical cream or laser treatment, you can help to clear it up. If you would like to learn more about rosacea or rosacea treatment, contact Dr. Barry Goldman today!
