Rosacea is a result of skin inflammation and many different triggers.

At Radiant Dermatology, we offer a variety of topical skin care products to decrease the unwanted and often embarrassing redness of rosacea, so you always look and feel your best.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness and swelling, primarily on the face. Other areas that can be affected are the scalp, neck, ears, chest, and back. Rosacea can even affect the eyes.
Those suffering from rosacea may first notice a tendency to flush or blush easily. The condition can occur over a long period of time and often progresses to a persistent redness, as well as pimples and visible blood vessels in the center of the face that can eventually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.
Since rosacea causes facial swelling and redness, it is easily confused with other skin conditions, such as acne and sunburn. For this reason, rosacea is known as the “great pretender,” and can be misdiagnosed as adult acne.
