Rosacea’s Four Stages and Treatment


Approximately 2 million people have rosacea, a skin disorder that is caused by enlarged blood vessels. Rosacea makes the skin, especially on the face, red and inflamed, often accompanied by pimples and bumps. Most common in people aged 30-60 years old with fair skin, there are four stages that rosacea is defined by.

Stage One: Facial Redness
A flushed appearance, like you’re too hot or got a sunburn, is the first stage of rosacea. Tiny veins become visible under the skin, particularly in the areas of the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. Left untreated, these veins can turn into spider veins.

Stage Two: Papulopustular Rosacea
Redness becomes more prevalent and acne develops.

Stage Three: Ocular Rosacea
This stage affects the eyes and surrounding area. The eyes may feel like they’re burning, and severe acne can develop on the eyelids.

Stage Four: Phymatous Rosacea
This is a severest stage that is characterized by thickening skin, particularly on the nose. Excess tissue makes the nose bulbous and bumpy.

The Solution to Rosacea
It is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of a patient’s rosacea, since there are many triggers. The condition can be made worse by stress, eating spicy and/or acidic foods, drinking caffeine, exposing the skin to dramatic fluctuations in temperature or an allergic reaction to something ingested or topically applied. The most important thing to do is to modify your lifestyle to see if the problem can be resolved. You should also speak to a medical professional to figure out the best course of treatment. Skin Vitality can help you treat rosacea by a customized skin care regimen or photofacial rejuvenation. Call us today to book your appointment.
