Medical Dermatology


Rosacea is a common skin condition, typically arising in fair-skinned individuals between 30-50 years of age. There are two main types of rosacea:

  1. Papulopustular – This type of rosacea looks very similar to acne with red spots and small pustules.
  2. Erythrotelangiectatic – This presents with diffuse redness, flushing and broken blood vessels.

Often, patients experience both types and rosacea can even affect the eyes (with a feeling of grittiness and a bloodshot look).

At California Skin Institute, our board-certified dermatologists and advanced practitioners will tailor treatments specifically to your presentation and needs.
