This lovely patient with rosacea visited Dr. Austin after several years of frustration and unsuccessful treatments. Dr. Austin diagnosed her with one of the most severe types of rosacea: granulomatous rosacea. This particular variant of rosacea is rare (about 10% of all rosacea diagnoses) and is characterized by intense facial redness, pustules, and firm bumps. Dr. Austin provided a unique treatment plan for this patient, including prescription topical treatments. For granulomatous rosacea, treatment often calls for low-dose Accutane to work on the rosacea from the inside and remove the granulomatous bumps, as well as topical tretinoin. Vascular laser treatments are ideal for treating the root cause of rosacea, which are enlarged superficial blood vessels. This patient is absolutely thrilled with her results. Her rosacea is completely in remission. As an additional bonus, she loves the anti-aging and tightening benefits of her prescription regimen and vascular laser treatments. Our providers at BACD always think outside the box for their wonderful patients. The secret ingredient to this patient's success was her complete dedication to her routine, and a belief in the science and expertise provided by Dr. Austin.
