Best Treatment For Rosacea from Dr. Mary Lupo, Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology
Patients in and around New Orleans who have been diagnosed with conditions such as rosacea often speak with a Board-certified dermatologist to learn about ways to control it. Dr. Mary Lupo at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology can assist patients in finding the best treatment for their skin.

Rosacea explained

Rosacea is a chronic disorder which affects the skin of the facial area. It can have flare-ups and remissions. There are four subtypes of rosacea that may be diagnosed:
  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea – redness of the face
  • Papulopustular rosacea – bumps and pimples
  • Phymatous rosacea – thickening of the skin
  • Ocular rosacea – eye irritation

This condition can become extremely severe without treatment, causing many patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Some of the symptoms of rosacea can be covered with cosmetics while others cannot. Patients often deal with burning, stinging, eye irritation, dry skin, and plaques. It is unknown what causes a patient to develop rosacea, but seeking professional treatment is the first step.

Finding the best treatment

Every patient situation is unique, as is the severity and type of condition they suffer from. A consultation appointment is the first step in deciding the most effective way to address rosacea. Patients may benefit from one or more of the following treatment solutions:
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Oral antibiotics
  • Prescription topical therapy
  • Laser therapy
  • Improved skin care regimen
  • Avoidance of triggers (cosmetics, hot water, intense exercise)
