Reining in Rosacea

Treatment for Rosacea in Pittsburgh

Suffering from Rosacea? We have the answer!

Rosacea, while not physically debilitating, may be psychologically debilitating. The red skin, unattractive bumps and pustules, bulbous or reddish nose may make you feel self-conscious. The symptoms may cause you to avoid going out in public. Or, if you do go out you may, wittingly or unwittingly, have developed habits that make you look as though you lack self-confidence.

Just as someone with crooked teeth may avoid smiling, thereby leaving the impression of dourness or anger, someone with Rosacea may cover their face with their hands or look down at their feet rather than look directly into someone else’s eyes. These little “ticks” may cause you to seem unfriendly, disinterested, self-conscious or shy. It’s tough to get someone to trust you and believe in you when you can’t look at them directly. And, even in our environment of virtual communications, sometimes a face-to-face meeting is the key to getting a job or securing a new client. If Rosacea is holding you back, it’s incumbent upon you to find the right treatment to get you back on your feet and on the road to personal comfort with your appearance.

If you have Rosacea, you are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 20 people suffer from it at some level. That said, Dr. Ted Grossbart, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School believes, “It would be hard to invent a more embarrassing disease than Rosacea.” The results of a recent survey show that 76% of patients felt that facial Rosacea had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, 63% felt it had made it difficult for them to establish new relationships, and more than 40% had cancelled face-to-face meetings because of it. Not only that, as anyone with Rosacea has experienced, stress makes it worse. So, you can find yourself in a cycle where avoidance leads to stress, leads to an outbreak, leads to avoidance … to stress … to an outbreak – you get the picture.

When I first started on my path into aesthetics, I was thinking in terms of an art form to optimize appearances and help people stay younger and fresher looking. What I have found, is that there is a significant deeper positive psychological impact when people are confident in their appearance. It has been proven that when we look better, we feel better. And, when we feel better, we do better physically and emotionally.
