Rosacea in West Palmdale, CA

The skin condition known as rosacea, which causes the skin to look inflamed and red, is typically presented across the nose and cheeks. It is often mistaken for other skin ailments but may be treated and managed if diagnosed correctly. Sandhu Dermatology & Med Spa uses several advanced solutions, such as laser therapy, to lighten skin and reduce the symptoms of this chronic disease. Rosacea can happen to almost anyone, but it is widespread among middle-aged older women with fair skin. This skin condition has no known cure, but it may be managed. If left untreated, it may worsen over the years, causing symptoms to return and flare up for weeks and weeks. With practice locations in West Palmdale, Ridgecrest, and Tehachapi, CA, we can examine your skin for rosacea and create a personalized treatment plan to help keep it at a minimum.

Even though there's no cure for rosacea currently, several treatment choices are available, such as antibiotics that help with flare-ups. You can use the medicine in pill form or as a cream, gel, or lotion. Pills tend to be much more successful in the short term but can create more side effects. If antibiotics aren't effective, acne drugs (like isotretinoin) have shown to work for some patients. Surgery might be required in circumstances where the symptoms become irreversible, such as enlarged blood vessels or discoloration that will not respond to any other remedies. Laser surgery or electrosurgery may minimize the look of blood vessels and remove excessive tissue buildup around the nose.

Symptoms of rosacea can vary from moderate to severe. The tell-tale sign of rosacea is a red face. In most patients, the central part of the face is noticeably red. The blood vessels of the nose and cheeks may swell and be noticeable. Other symptoms can include:

  • Swollen, red bumps on the face similar to acne that sometimes contain discharge
  • Skin may be hot and tender to the touch
  • Possible eye issues, such as dry eye, irritation, and red, swollen eyelids
  • A thickening of the skin on the nose, resulting in a bulbous look

I see Michelle the Nurse Practitioner and she is amazing at what she does! She is very honest and doesn't recommend things that won't benefit you. Thank you Michelle for doing my cosmetic treatments. Highly recommend

I am so upset right now, I was a new client going in for my very first visit for Botox , my appointment was at 4pm and they literally just called me at 3:05pm to tell me she is rescheduling my appointment to Tuesday, not even giving me the option or explaining why. This appointment was reserved one month ago. That is very unprofessional and they definitely lost a new client. The girl in the front needs training she comes off as very rude and is always calling out. They should’ve given me a heads up at least one to two days before but one hour before the procedure is very inconsiderate and unprofessional. ***UPDATE*** The Office Manager Eloísa called me to apologize for the bad experience I encountered. She made me feel comfortable and secure enough to give them a chance to do the services I wanted. I went in on 4/12 and had a great experience with Eloisa, Michelle and Lora. Overall I do recommend Sandhu Dermatology, thank you ladies for the great experience.
