Rosacea (pronounced "roh-ZAY-sha") is a chronic condition and potentially life-disruptive disorder primarily of the facial skin, often characterized by flushing or redness of the face. While distinct vessels can be part of the condition, the overall redness is caused by vessels that are too small to see individually.
Many have observed that it typically begins any time after age 30 as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that may come and go. In some cases, rosacea may also occur on the neck, chest, scalp or ears. Over time, the redness tends to become ruddier and more persistent, and visible blood vessels may appear.
While there is no cure for Rosacea and the cause is unknown, medical laser therapy is available to control or reverse its signs and symptoms.
