The South Shore’s Most Progressive  & Established Dermatology Practice


Rosacea is a skin disorder characterized by redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Small bumps, pimples, or blood vessels may also appear.

While the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, it can be triggered by certain foods, sun exposure, environmental factors, and emotional factors. Rosacea is most common among fair skinned people between the ages of 30 and 50. The condition affects almost 14 million people in the U.S.

Patients who exhibit signs of rosacea should see their dermatologist for proper diagnosis, education and early treatment to avoid progression and worsening of the condition.
