Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition where facial blood vessels enlarge, causing redness of the face. The condition affects about 14 million Americans, mostly adults between the ages of 30 and 60 who have fair skin. Rosacea commonly affects more women than men and often causes small, red, pus-filled bumps or pustules that are sometimes mistaken for acne.
Most people are familiar with varicose and spider veins, whether it be from a special they saw on TV, an article they read online or something they’ve experienced firsthand. However, many people are unaware that when these veins are left untreated, they have the tendency to not only grow in size and number but can also cause an array of symptoms including pain, cramping, itching, burning, tingling and other types of discomfort, and as these veins continue to grow increasingly worse, they make the process of treating them more difficult and complex.
