What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common disorder that primarily involves the appearance of redness and inflammation on the face. This condition often appears in adult life during one’s 30s and 40s. After the appearance of facial flushing, inflamed papules and pustules can develop usually on the cheek and nose, making the condition worse. Rosacea can severely disrupt our complexions and lead to a lack of self-confidence. If you are struggling with this concern, we invite you to visit our Ventura center and explore the full range of treatment options we offer.
What Causes Rosacea?
Rosacea is believed to occur due to an alteration of the immune system on the surface of the skin. This alteration results from an abnormality of a protein referred to as a cathelicidin peptide. Over-expression of this protein causes an inflammatory response that leads to the redness and irritation characteristic of rosacea. This immune response may be genetic, environmental, or a combination of both. The appearance of this issue and its severity is hard to predict, therefore the condition may appear seemingly out of nowhere.
