Rosacea, a skin condition that causes the skin to appear red and inflamed, is usually presented around the nose and cheeks. It is often mistaken for other skin conditions but can be treated and managed if diagnosed properly. Kind Health Group in Encinitas, CA, utilizes many advanced solutions, including laser therapy, to lighten skin and decrease the symptoms of this chronic disease. Rosacea can occur in almost anyone, but it's prevalent among middle-aged older women with fair skin. This is a skin condition with no true cure, but it can be managed. If left untreated, it can worsen over time, causing symptoms to return and flare up for days or weeks. Our team will examine your skin for rosacea and develop a customized treatment plan to keep the symptoms at a minimum.

"Having been a patient myself at Kind Medical Group, I was sure that the decision to bring my daughter in for care was a great idea…but I was still blown away at the level of care, kindness, and expertise that Kellye shared with us. We’d been through a few dermatologists with little success and a lot of frustration. I was so pleased to see how comfortable my daughter felt and was so happy to see her have hope again that she can have clear skin! Kellye, the PA at Kind, assured us that she had many years experience in treating acne and we left confident that the care plan she thoughtfully laid out for us would be successful. Thank you to the team at Kind for another great experience!"- L.D. / Google / Mar 25, 2022
"I came to Kind Health Group seeking treatment for urinary incontinence. Post menopause and 3 kids, I found myself unable to control my bladder which heavily weighed on my active lifestyle. Being unable to even do a jumping jack without leakage was humiliating! I came across this establishment and instantly felt warm and welcomed inside. Dr. Nanos is so professional and understanding. She made me feel very comfortable when discussing a very personal and embarrassing issue. She recommended the Emsella treatment and WOW my incontinence is completely gone! To be able to live a lifestyle without leakage is something I never thought would happen. I’m truly blown away by how kind and professional everyone is. I highly recommend! They also do a lot of aesthetic treatments as well that I’m sure I’ll be looking into soon. Thank you Kind!"- A.P. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2022

While the precise cause of rosacea is unknown, we believe that it's caused by a combination of hereditary and environmental elements. People of Celtic or Scandinavian ancestry seem to have a higher incidence of rosacea. Patients usually have other family members who suffer from rosacea or severe acne.
People who are prone to having bad acne have a higher risk of developing rosacea. Scientists believe that immune system overreactions can cause rosacea, especially when the immune system overreacts to a specific bacterium or a mite. These theories, however, haven't been demonstrated to be entirely validated.
There are a high number of factors that could aggravate rosacea since they increase the blood flow to the surface of the skin. These can include alcohol, spicy foods, hot beverages, sun exposure, extreme temperatures, hot baths or showers, stress, embarrassment or anger, strenuous exercise, and certain medications.There are a high number of factors that could aggravate rosacea since they increase the blood flow to the surface of the skin.

Symptoms for Rosacea
Indicators of rosacea can vary from mild to severe. The most obvious sign of rosacea is redness of the face. In most patients, the central portion of the face is noticeably red. The blood vessels of the nose and cheeks can swell and become visible. Other symptoms include red and swollen bumps on the face that look similar to acne. Sometimes the bumps are pus-filled. The skin can also feel hot and tender to the touch. Roughly half of rosacea sufferers have eye problems, such as dry eye, irritation, and reddened, swollen eyelids. In rare situations, a patient's nose will probably appear enlarged because rosacea can cause the skin around the nose to thicken, which results in a bulbous appearance.
Treatment Options for Rosacea
Even though there is no cure for rosacea, there are a number of treatment choices available, such as antibiotics that help with inflammation. You can use the medication in a pill form or as a cream, lotion, or gel. Pills tend to be more effective in the short term but can create more side effects. If antibiotics aren't effective, acne drugs such as isotretinoin have proven to work for some patients. Surgery might be needed in circumstances where the symptoms become permanent, such as enlarged blood vessels or discoloration that won't subside with other remedies. Laser surgery or electrosurgery can be utilized to reduce the appearance of blood vessels and remove excessive tissue buildup around the nose.
Restore Your Self-Esteem
Rosacea not only causes physical symptoms but emotional ones as patients are often self-conscious in public and avoid social situations because of the redness.
