Our face can get affected by various skin conditions, mainly because it is exposed all the time. However, some skin conditions can also appear when environmental factors combine with genetics. Rosacea is a skin condition that occurs due to malfunctioning blood vessels under the skin. As a result of this condition, the face, especially the cheeks, becomes red in appearance. Fortunately, Rosacea Treatment in Dubai is a great option for treating this skin condition. Different non-surgical treatment techniques are available for treating Rosacea with zero side effects and minimal downtime.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin problem mainly affecting the facial region. As a result of this problem, small, pus-filled pustules appear on the face. These pustules or bumps are red and tend to aggravate if not treated in time. Besides affecting the facial appearance, these red pustules can also lead to other skin problems, such as large pores, black or whiteheads, acne breakouts, etc.
Currently, no permanent treatment is available for Rosacea, but several home remedies and Laser Rosacea Treatment help control its intensity.
The primary symptom of Rosacea is redness of the face, neck, chin, chest, ears, and forehead. However, other symptoms may include:
- Burning sensation on the facial skin

Although the primary cause of Rosacea is unknown, some triggers playing a pivotal role in causing this condition are as follows:
