With such a great number of people suffering from this condition, there has been a significant amount of research putting into controlling and limiting the symptoms and outbreaks. While rosacea is not acne, there are some acne medications that have proven effective in managing the symptoms associated with it. The treatments commonly used for managing rosacea include:

  • Isotretinoin
  • Topical Antibiotics
  • Sulfa-Based Washes
  • Photodynamic Therapy
  • Lasers
  • Pulse-Light Therapy

While those experiencing minor symptoms of rosacea may find themselves unbothered by them, almost everyone who experiences severe rosacea symptoms seeks relief. Reach out to your dermatologist to get information about this condition and what you can do to manage it.

Since there is no cure for rosacea, treatment focuses on reducing symptoms and usually includes a combination of therapies. Antibiotics are often prescribed to reduce inflammation. Certain acne medications can also be effective at controlling rosacea.

Laser and light therapy treatments like intense pulsed light (IPL) or broadband light (BBL) can help with collapsing blood vessels, reducing redness and skin thickening.
