Rosacea is a common skin disease that affects more than 16 million individuals across the country. If you are struggling with skin redness, irritation, and flushing, know that you are not alone. The first step toward healing and treating rosacea is understanding the facts. At Serene Advanced Skin Care, we have the experience and treatment plans to help you feel confident in your skin.
What is Rosacea? (Causes and Symptoms)
According to the National Rosacea Society, rosacea is a chronic skin condition. It affects the center of your face including the chin, nose, cheeks and forehead.
Most people first notice rosacea symptoms between ages 30 to 60. One of the first signs is often flushing (that may come and go) or persistent redness. It tends to be more common in women, but men may experience more severe symptoms.
Symptoms of rosacea include:
- Persistent redness (like a sunburn that won’t go away)
- Pimple-like bumps
- Visible, small blood vessels
- Skin thickening
There are several different types of rosacea, so keep in mind that you may have some symptoms and not others. Rosacea can affect anyone, but it’s more common in people who are fair-skinned or of European descent.
Rosacea Causes & Triggers
Symptoms are often caused by common rosacea triggers. Some of the most common include sun exposure, emotional stress, extreme temperatures, wind, heavy exercise, alcohol, and spicy food. Track which triggers cause your rosacea flares so you can avoid these lifestyle and environmental factors.

Serene Advanced Skin Care Topicals to Prevent & Treat Rosacea
Serene offers a variety of skincare topicals that prevent and treat rosacea, including ZO Skin Health’s product, Rozatrol. Rozatrol is a serum for red, sensitive skin that reduces excess surface oil. The serum eliminates signs of premature aging and works by attacking the irritating and uncomfortable symptoms of rosacea.
Rozatrol helps prevent inflammation and boosts cell turnover. The serum also supports microcirculation within the skin. Ingredients include milk proteins that help calm irritated skin, glycerin for hydration, and papain for a gentle exfoliator.
Rozatrol is a topical product you can buy over-the-counter, developed by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi.
Serene’s Treatments and Services to Treat Rosacea
AQUAGOLD Fine Touch™
Serene offers multiple skin treatments and services to treat rosacea. A primary treatment for this condition is the AQUAGOLD fine touch™. This treatment involves a microchannel microinjector that painlessly, effectively, and delicately delivers specially selected therapeutics into the dermis. This service works to treat the same issues as the ZO Rozatrol treatments.
Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial
Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial is a laser treatment that involves light therapy. This service treats pigment and vascular skin concerns, dilated blood vessels, and rosacea. Bright light passes through the epidermis, drawing out the pigment-producing cells and dispersing the uneven pigment. If warranted providers at Serene can also prescribe oral and topical antibiotics.
