What is the best Rosacea treatment for patients in the New Orleans area?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Patients who visit board certified dermatologist Dr. Mary Lupo will often ask, “What is the best rosacea treatment?” Unfortunately, there is no one answer to this question. Rosacea can develop in different levels of severity, and every patient’s skin is unique. Some patients experience more recurrent flare-ups others experience a different subtype of rosacea. Patients may experience anything from slight reddening or flushing of the face to itchy, watery eyes or large bumps and pimples.
Dr. Lupo, of Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, needs to examine a patient to determine the best rosacea treatment for them. Each individual has unique needs, and by understanding the severity of a patient’s condition, Dr. Lupo can make the best recommendations on a case-by-case basis.
There are several treatments available for those struggling with rosacea. Oral antibiotics, topical therapy, laser treatment, and lifestyle changes are all methods in which a patient may control flare-ups and reduce triggers. However, each patient should have a treatment plan tailored to his or her specific condition. In addition, patients may need to experiment with several treatments or a combination of treatments for the best results. Dr. Lupo may also suggest several skin care regimens and specific cosmetics to avoid to reduce triggers and rosacea flare-ups altogether.
Dr. Lupo, of Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans, understands that rosacea can be embarrassing and can be a source of lost confidence and self-esteem. Knowing this, she works with patients to determine the best treatment plan to address their condition and reduce it as much as possible for the patient’s overall health and wellbeing.
