While rosacea cannot be cured, it can be controlled. Today there are many therapies available to treat the various potential signs and symptoms of rosacea, from topical medications to laser therapy. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual condition. Below are before and after photos showing the possible outcomes of treatment.
As with any medical therapy, outcomes of rosacea treatment may vary from case to case. Please consult a dermatologist or other physician to determine the appropriate therapy for your individual case.
