What is Acne and Rosacea?

Acne and rosacea are two fairly common skin conditions people in the United States experience. While acne mostly impacts teens and young adults, rosacea is more common among middle-aged women who have fair skin. Both can be linked to genetics, and those with rosacea are actually more susceptible to having acne at some point in their life. Acne is most commonly a mixture of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and other red and swollen areas of the skin, whereas rosacea is mostly known as a red face but can also include swollen bumps on the skin similar to acne. Both of these conditions can be managed and controlled with the help of dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier. At Brickell Cosmetic Center, we can help you treat and manage your acne or rosacea, as well as minimize acne scarring so you can have a face that is beautiful, smooth, and has an even complexion.

How are Acne and Rosacea Diagnosed and Treated?

Puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and other hormonal changes are often the cause of acne. Certain medications, like birth control, as well as a poor diet and anxiety, can also lead to acne breakouts. If you have or have had severe acne, you are more likely to experience acne scarring. Typically, these scars look bumpy and dented and give off an irregular appearance on the skin, even after the acne has faded. A number of things can lead to acne scarring, including genetics, lack of treatment, and picking or touching your acne. Like acne, environmental and genetic factors are known to be what causes rosacea. Rosacea flare-ups can be caused by spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, sun exposure, hot temperatures, anxiety and embarrassment, overexertion, and certain medications.

Dr. Dozier can diagnose the exact cause of your skin condition to help treat your acne or rosacea. Some common options we may consider are prescription topical creams, antibiotics, laser treatments, or something else. In some cases, a combination of treatments could provide ideal results.
