Avatar m tn I would really like some advice about the treatment and whether you think it is worth it and will I see a noticeable difference to my complexion? Would the laser surgery remove the hairs from my face? Many thanks for your time.
375373 tn?1492346001 Isotretinoin may be considered as a treatment option for all forms of severe or therapy-resistant rosacea. Electrosurgery and laser surgery may be options to treat redness, enlarged blood vessels, and rhinophyma. In some patients, laser surgery may result in improved skin appearance with little scarring or damage. For patients with rhinophyma, several surgical methods may help reduce the size of the nose and improve appearance.

493068 tn?1224768915 I have ocular rosacea and Dr. K had told me about a laser surgery to treat my gluacoma and it was to help me with the ocular rosacea in the long run. I wanted to hear what he would reccomend that I do. I do not want to take Doxycycline the rest of my life. It is for my eyes.....
Avatar n tn If the current cream doesn’t work, my doctor said that Laser Surgery is another option. He told me that it’s possible that I have early Rosacea. He’s also told me that younger people have a tendency to go through chemical changes, causing over-active body functions [ie. face activity and armpit activity]. He told me that it’s very possible that I will grow out of it.

Avatar n tn within the last month my pores have become very large. I am scheduled to have laser surgery for the blood vessels and redness on my face on Jan. 4, 2006 I have been doing some research and I am a bit overwhelmed and confused and don't know which direction to go in. My doctor uses the Photogenica V-star pulse dye laser.. but I have been reading up on IPL treatment. Can you please tell me what the differnce is between pulse dye lasers and Intense pulse light (IPL)?????
Avatar m tn I understand that the extra growth tissue can be removed by laser. However, I see some people with rosacea, they often have thickened skin with large pore and the nose is enlarged as a whole, not just bumps. So I am extremely worried and horrified if I've got to that stage, I would never have a chance to have a normal looking nose again.
Avatar m tn I had a cataract in one eye only but I chose to have cataract surgery in both my eyes. My post-surgery distance vision in the eye without the cataract is at least as good as my best-correct vision was before surgery. I've never had a problem with my IOLs.

Avatar n tn I don't think it likely that the surgery would cause the rosacea to flair up. The lesion could be an angioma which is a non-malignant tumor of blood vessels. Tying to destroy it with the laser would not give a tissue diagnosis which is important to know what you're dealing with. If its as small as you say most likely it will be taken out completely which is called an excisional biopsy. She can ask her dermatologist if she should increase her rosacea medicine in anticipation of the biopsy.
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be due to telangiectasia. They are small dilated blood vessels present under the skin especially on the face. It can be due to environmental changes like sun or cold overexposure, skin trauma, overuse of steroids, acne rosacea or venous hypertension. Sclerotherapy and laser treatment are the two main treatment options. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist and get it evaluated.
Avatar n tn Hi, The symptoms you describe could be due to everyday causes such as anger, the food you eat, alcohol, menopause, dehydration, etc. This could also be - Rosacea; once the above causes have been ruled out. Rosacea is a cutaneous disorder primarily of convexities of the central part of the FACE, such as FOREHEAD; CHEEK; NOSE; and CHIN. It is characterized by FLUSHING; ERYTHEMA; EDEMA; RHINOPHYMA; papules; and ocular symptoms.
Avatar m tn I believe the most effective way of dealing with rosacea was with laser treatment on the affected areas. Here in NZ it is covered under medical insurance if it's caused by a medical condition ie: HCV and or tx. Otherwise it can be seen as a cosmetic procedure. I suffered from rosacea for years even prior to tx (and of course found out later that it was a symptom of the HCV), after my first tx it worsened and I underwent a course of pulse laser light treatment with great success.
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? Try to avoid putting any creams and medications to prevent further harm. This could be due to rosacea which is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes redness in the face and produces small, red, pus-filled bumps. If this condition is left untreated, rosacea gets worse over time. Signs and symptoms may flare up for a period of weeks to months and then lessen for a while before flaring up again. Other differentials include skin allergy or eczema.
Avatar m tn The only answer I could come up with is that I would need laser surgery but maybe there is a better way. I'll post a picture so you can see what I'm talking about and any suggestions would be helpful.
Avatar m tn Hi: I had open heart surgery at the beginning of the year. I am on many medications including blood thinners. I am a 55 year old male. I have been getting a lot of broken capillaries on my face. My internist said he wasn't sure if a dermatologist could help as most of the capillaries are very small and the lasers only work on the larger facial capillaries. I asked him about medicine and he wasn't sure. I would appreciate if anyone has a suggestion. Thank You!
Avatar n tn Facial spider veins can be tricky to remove because facial vein treatments are often limited to Laser Vein Removal, since Sclerotherapy and vein removal surgery can leave permanent scarring. Laser Vein Removal has become the preferred method of getting rid of spider veins. Facial spider veins in particular were once difficult to treat, but lasers and IPL have made it effortless.
493068 tn?1224768915 I have Ocular Rosacea and it gets very bad at times and have chronic styes. Can you explain why this condition is so painful? I am off and on Doxycyclines and Erythromycin ointment. Is there any other new treatment? I also have glaucoma and have Sjogrens. I have some days that I am unable to read or drive.
Avatar m tn I do have dry eye-Rosacea - Chronic conjuntivitis- so dry eye and light sensativity is always an issue I deal with overcoming. It seems like after each Retina laser surgery the light sensativity gets worse . It is very bad right after ( normal ) but it seems after each time the recovery is slower and even after a month or so the light sensativity is worse than before.
Avatar n tn Surgery or other treatments may help your skin look better if you have advanced rosacea. Choices may include dermabrasion, cryosurgery, or laser treatment.Discuss which option is suited for you with your dermatologist. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn You have been so accurate in most of your replies that it scares me ! I have Occular Rosacea- Chronic conjunctivitis -Light sensativity. Your response mirrors my situation and I would imagine that if you knew the other issues you would have came to the same conclusion . I must say that all my Retina and other complications came to light after cataract surgery. It is a shame that some docs do not listen better and look harder before recommending surgery.
493068 tn?1224768915 He also mentioned a corneal lens surgery that would have to be done in Boston. Do you know of this surgery and explain? Thanks for all of your help. proud48 .
Avatar f tn She said it was just normal folliculitus and put me on anti-biotics. When I go off the meds, the rash comes right back. It comes every 2 or 3 months no matter what time of year it is (hot or cold). It starts with small ***** white heads that are very red and raised around the head. They itch and burn severely, and they also cause me to feel like my skin all over is on fire when I only get the actual bumps on my chest, breasts, neck, lower face, back of neck, upper back and upper arms.
Avatar m tn I have had Capsolotomy in both eyes following cataract surgery- also had retinal detachment ( sclarel buckle ) right eye- Laser for horseshoe tears in both retinas and laser for lattice / holes as well . Following all this I have light sensativity issues as well as dry eye and optical Rosacea , chronic conjuntuvitis.
Avatar n tn laser can help. rosacea does not always come with those bumps though it does come and go in the sun, when you eat certain foods or get stressed. there are several triggers actually.
Avatar n tn I do not experience halos or car headlights bothering me it just seems like I do not focus in well enough. No I have not had any previous surgery in my left eye nor any previous eye history of problems. I also have several floaters in BOTH eyes since the cataract and yag procedures.That is also very upsetting!I .I am also being always told that my dry eyes may be making my vision worse.
Avatar n tn They are small dilated blood vessels present under the skin especially on the face. It can be due to environmental changes, skin trauma, overuse of steroids, rosacea or venous hypertension. Telangiectasias on the face are often treated with laser. My sincere advice is to consult a cosmetologist and discuss this with him. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn They did nothing at all =( I dont know whats wrong with my face but i didnt have this problem 2 years ago. I am about to try laser surgery i'm desperate.
