Many people suffer daily with a ‘red face’. Flushing, blushing, sensitive skin, prominent blood vessels and pimples may all be symptoms of rosacea. While this is more common in lighter skin types, those with skin of colour can also get rosacea. Because redness is difficult to see in people with dark skin, rosacea is often undiagnosed in this population.
Reaching the correct diagnosis and choosing the right treatment is critical for treatment success.
Rosacea treatment involves avoidance of triggers and special gentle skin care products and may require prescribed creams and oral medications. Vascular laser may also be helpful for decreasing redness and facial vessels.
Treatments, including lasers that are safe in skin of colour/dark skin are available at Chroma Dermatology.
