Treatment for Rosacea in Ann Arbor, MI

Rosacea is more than just some facial redness—for many, it can be intensely painful, interfering with your work, your social life, and even everyday functions like your vision. Because rosacea is chronic and cyclical, its symptoms may not always be with you, instead flaring up right when it feels most intrusive and inconvenient. That’s why effective rosacea treatment starts with a true skincare partner—like the experts at Ganger Dermatology.

Rosacea Causes & Treatments

Rosacea is an inflammatory condition sometimes referred to as “adult acne” for the characteristic redness, flushed appearance, visible blood vessels, and pimple-like bumps it can produce on the face. Medical science doesn’t yet fully understand what causes this chronic inflammation and the painful symptoms associated with it. It may be related to your genetics, triggers in your environment, an issue in your immune system, or a combination of the three.

Although there is no cure for rosacea, the highly experienced providers at Ganger Derm have a wealth of treatments and resources to control and manage the symptoms. Our office offers topical treatments, prescription medications, and laser treatments such as BBL to target rosacea’s most pervasive symptoms. We also work with each patient to identify common triggers that can make their condition worse.

Frequently Asked Questions

Rosacea FAQs

Rosacea’s symptoms may come and go, but the underlying condition unfortunately never goes away. An individual flare-up can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Without treatment, however, rosacea tends to get worse, with longer-lasting flare-ups and more extensive damage.

For example, about 50% of people with rosacea experience additional complications like irritated, dry, and swollen eyes, red eyelids, or a thickening of the skin on their nose that can lead to a bulbous appearance. Intervention and treatment can help you prevent and manage these issues

Rosacea has a number of common triggers, though each person is unique and may have their own combination of triggering products, foods, or activities. These often include:

  • Sunlight & heat
  • Alcohol & hot beverages
  • Spicy foods
  • Stress & anxiety
  • Harsh wind & cold
  • Certain chemicals in skin and hair care products, especially alcohol-based products

Your dermatologist can help you identify and understand your triggers, then make lifestyle, diet, and product recommendations that can fit easily into your routine.

Rosacea’s appearance can change depending on the type of rosacea you have. During its onset, you may not even realize that you have it. In the early stages, it can mimic the appearance of other skin conditions (which respond to different treatments), so it’s best to have a dermatologist examine your skin for an accurate diagnosis.

Rosacea has four main types, which are characterized by different appearances:

  • Vascular rosacea: visible blood vessels, patches of red skin on the face
  • Inflammatory rosacea: hard, red bumps and pimple-like pustules with pus
  • Phymatous rosacea: thick, bumpy skin, sometimes concentrated around the nose
  • Ocular rosacea: inflamed eyes and eyelids, crust around the eyelids, and potentially impaired vision
