Redness and Rosacea

As a board certified dermatologist, Dr. O’Neill has treated a lot of red faces. Redness and rosacea are common skin problems, more common in patients with fair skin and a history of easy blushing. Flushing or persistent redness is most common on the central face: cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Women are affected 3 times more often than men.

What we can do

Although it can’t be cured, rosacea can be controlled. Dr. O’Neill will first assess your skin, and confirm the diagnosis at her Mississauga clinic.

  • Step 1: Avoid triggers such as heat, alcohol, spicy food, sun, wind, extreme temperature change
  • Step 2: Laser therapy and/or IPL treatment to improve chronic redness
  • Step 3: Therapeutic skin care products to sooth sensitive skin and combat redness
  • Step 4: Moderate to severe rosacea may require prescription medication

Providing you with an individualized comprehensive skin health program.
