Rosacea Treatment in Cleveland, Ohio

Rosacea is an extremely common skin ailment, with symptoms such as facial redness with swollen red bumps and small visible blood vessels. It is sometimes mistaken for acne or other skin conditions, and can sometimes occur alongside cystic acne. Treatments such as antibiotics or anti-acne medications can control and reduce symptoms. Medication doesn’t work for all symptoms—especially redness and flushing, as well as skin thickening around the nose. If you’ve been struggling with these symptoms, laser treatment may be an option. Left untreated, rosacea tends to worsen over time.

What causes rosacea?

Rosacea runs in families and commonly affects women with fair skin. But rosacea is ultimately a condition caused by triggers. Sunlight and hairspray are common rosacea triggers. Other common triggers include heat, stress, alcohol, and spicy foods. Typically, rosacea affects the skin on the nose, cheeks, and forehead. Rosacea flare-ups can occur in cycles, with symptoms for weeks or months at a time, the symptoms will go away, then return.

Is there any cure for rosacea?

No permanent rosacea cure is known. However, laser treatments help eliminate visible blood vessels from the face. It helps reduce redness, and dramatically improves the texture of the skin. Laser treatment is not a permanent cure for rosacea, but results last for months or even years after treatment. Laser therapy for rosacea can provide a 40 to 60% improvement in symptoms after the second treatment.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
