Rosacea is a skin disorder that may affect as many as 45-50 million people worldwide and approximately 14 million people in the United States alone. The condition is primarily characterized by inflammation and reddening of the facial skin. It commonly occurs on and around the nose, cheeks, forehead, chin, eyelids, and occasionally on the neck and upper chest.
Is the Treatment Right for Me?
Patients in the Ottawa area with Acne Rosacea see Dr. Gregory Antoniak for treatment of this long-term disorder. Acne Rosacea is treated by following a customized treatment plan which will help reduce symptoms and improve your skin’s overall appearance.
