Rosacea is a non-contagious, widespread chronic skin disease. 

Rosacea progresses in several stages. In the first stage, it appears as a transient, occasional redness of the face, also known as couperosis.

After that, the redness remains permanently visible. It is caused by constant dilation of the small, superficial blood vessels in the skin. In later stages, red papules and small purulent sacs form, which in men can lead to a bulging thickening of the skin, often in the area of the nose (pimple nose). The eyes may also be affected and become inflamed.
Rosacea is one of the most common dermatoses in adults. Due to its predominant appearance on the face, it is associated with a high degree of suffering for those affected. It is therefore gratifying that the symptoms of rosacea can be treated well and permanently, even if the otherwise chronic disease cannot be cured.

Laser therapy

Especially the annoying red veins can be removed gently and well with a KTP laser. The laser obliterates the small vessels so that they remain permanently closed.

Medical therapy

Nodules and pustules are signs of inflammation. They can be treated well with topical creams. The medications must be used for a few weeks to allow the skin changes to subside.

Some antibiotics are also prescribed in tablet form.
