Learn more about your rosacea treatment options when you turn to our Denver dermatologist.

Rosacea is a common skin condition that can cause embarrassing redness and flushing of the face. Sometimes unsightly bumps or blood vessels are also visible with these flare-ups. If our Denver, CO skin doctor, Dr. James Maloney, has just recently diagnosed you Rosaceawith this condition then isn’t it time you found out what your options are to manage your symptoms?

Rosacea is a condition that you shouldn’t try to treat on your own. After all, the symptoms people with rosacea experience will differ; therefore, the treatment you receive will need to be tailored by us on a case-by-case basis.


One common treatment option includes oral and/or topical medications, which we can prescribe to reduce redness and bumps. This is usually the first treatment we recommend to get the immediate symptoms under control. Then we can focus on what long-term topical treatments will help to manage your symptoms. Sometimes laser treatment is also used to treat redness and reduce the appearance of blood vessels.

Personal Skincare

We will also need to find out more about how you care for your skin to see what changes we will need to make to your routine in order to ease rosacea symptoms and reduce flare-ups. As you may have already guessed, gentle treatment is always best when it comes to rosacea. Opt for a mild, non-abrasive cleanser and never use hot water on your skin. Also remember not to scrub your skin. To dry off, pat your skin dry and never rub.

You should also never go outside without first applying a generous amount of sunscreen to your face everyday. Opt for a full spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Apply sunscreen about 20 minutes before heading outside.

You may also choose to use makeup to hide facial redness. We can help recommend rosacea-friendly skincare products with green-tinted foundations, which can help to reduce the appearance of redness.

Lifestyle Modifications

It’s always ideal if you can figure out what triggers your rosacea flare-ups so you can avoid these triggers as much as possible. Common triggers include sun exposure, stress, hot weather, heavy exercise, spicy foods, alcohol consumption and wind, to name a few. Keep a diary to try and figure out what factors could be triggering your rosacea.

When it comes to how to treat your skin conditions, remember that you aren’t alone. The skin care experts at Cherry Creek Dermatology in Denver, CO are here to help. Call us today and let us know you are looking for rosacea treatment.
