Rosacea vs. skin redness: what’s the difference?

Skin redness is an umbrella term that refers to redness caused by external, internal, or genetic factors. Rosacea is one specific type of skin redness that comes with its own unique set of symptoms and treatment options. 

It sounds silly, but this distinction is actually pretty important. The more we know about the specific needs of your skin, the better we can help you come up with a customized treatment plan that helps you achieve healthy, happy, glowing skin!

A deeper look into Rosacea 

How does Rosacea cause skin redness?

Rosacea is one of the leading causes of skin redness. It looks like pink or red patches of skin across the face, neck, or chest ranging from blushing level , to bright and hot to the touch While it may look like general “redness” from far away, it’s actually due to very, very small blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. The closer these vessels are to the surface, the more pronounced your rosacea may appear.

It is most common in middle-aged women with light complexions, and can easily be mistaken for acne, scarring, or a natural flush to the cheeks. In more severe cases, small bumps may form on the surface of the affected skin.

Rosacea appears in flare-ups that come and go over time, typically lasting weeks or months. During flare-ups, the affected skin might feel dry or irritated, and requires special care.

We don’t know very much about the causes of Rosacea. Flare-ups can be triggered by:
