Red Alert! April is Rosacea Awareness month.

The goal of Rosacea Awareness Month is to educate the public on the impact of this chronic and widespread facial disorder now estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans per NRS. It's also to spread public education so more people who may have rosacea seek medical help before it gets worse. The early signs of rosacea are often overlooked due to many patients assuming it is temporary and will eventually go away. However, without medical treatment, the effects of rosacea often persist and become increasingly severe.

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin.

If you are dealing with Rosacea or think you may have symptoms, call to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dermatology providers, Dr. Marie Wagener & PA Heather Davis.
