What causes rosacea flare-ups and what treatment options are available for New Orleans patients struggling with this condition?


Rosacea affects many patients, and it can be a troublesome medical condition to deal with. It is commonly mistaken for a typical rash or even eczema although is a condition that is characterized by bumps, flaky skin, bloodshot eyes, and redness anywhere on the body. Many patients that deal with rosacea on the face are embarrassed and experience lower self-esteem due to this condition. Thankfully, Dr. Lupo of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology offers several treatments for patients who are experiencing chronic flare-ups.

Rosacea flare-ups are triggered by specific incidents or activities, which can include taking a shower or bath that is too warm, sun exposure, stress, blushing, exposure to extreme temperatures or wind, excessive exercise, and specific foods and drinks, such as warm beverages, alcohol, high levels of caffeine, and spicy foods.

There are several treatments available for reducing the problems and conditions linked to rosacea. However, these are determined based on a patient’s needs, as well as the severity of their condition. Patients with milder cases of rosacea may benefit from prescription topical and oral therapies when flare-ups arise, while others with more severe cases of rosacea may want to consider long-term, regular solutions including laser treatments and lifestyle changes. Dr. Lupo of New Orleans works with patients to determine which treatment works best for each individual and how they can benefit from the confidence that they can achieve when their rosacea is under control.

A thorough examination and a proper diagnosis can help in achieving better skin and reducing problems associated with this condition.

Review From Anne R.
Dr. Mary Lupo and her staff performed Fraxel laser on my face and I had incredible results. The service, which is the brand Fraxel, isn't the least expensive in the city, but when done correctly by a professional like Dr. Lupo, the money is well spent. For me, I had issues with age spots and melasma, which were significantly diminished in one treatment--as well as fine lines around my eyes. My face looked young and bouncy and bright. For Dr. Lupo, this is a craft and she spends time with her patients, giving them the best results possible. I'd highly recommend her and this service to anyone.
