Vascular Factoid

Rosacea presents as facial flushing, persistent redness, dilated superficial blood vessels, inflammatory papules and pustules. Dilated blood vessels are best treated with laser and light-based therapies.


Sun exposure can speed up the appearance of new vessels on the face. Adequate sun-protection (SPF 30 or higher) is absolutely necessary and can slow down the rate at which new vessels appear.
