Who Can Be Affected?
Rosacea affects over 14 million Americans, and while anyone can develop this condition, it is most common in light-skinned, light-haired adults between the ages of 30 and 50. It also tends to run in families and affect people of Northern or Eastern European descent. The cause of rosacea is unknown.
“Dr Sobel came recommended from a friend, and I will never let anyone else near my skin again. He is not only a complete pro, but he is SO friendly, kind, and considerate. He really takes time with his patients and gets to know you.” – Anna K
How Is Rosacea Treated?
The most effective treatment for rosacea depends on each patient’s individual case, as symptoms can vary from person to person. Dr. Sobel often recommends Cutera Excel V for treatment of rosacea, but he will work with you to design the best treatment plan which may also include topical medication or oral antibiotics.
