All You Need to Know About Rosacea: Expert Care at Dr. Faiez Ghanam Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in Dubai

Understanding Rosacea: Comprehensive Care in Dubai


Skin conditions vary greatly, with some being easily managed at home and others requiring professional attention. Rosacea is one such condition, characterized by persistent facial redness and acne-like blemishes that typically appear after the age of 30. Although its exact cause remains unknown, effective treatments such as Broadband Light therapy, offered by experienced dermatologists, can help manage its symptoms.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that predominantly affects the face, especially the cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead, but it can also spread to the neck, back, eyes, scalp, and chest. It is marked by redness, pimple-like eruptions, and fine, spider-like blood vessels that can worsen over time. Environmental triggers such as sun exposure, extreme temperatures, certain foods and drinks, and hair products can exacerbate rosacea flare-ups.

Types of Rosacea

  • Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea: Characterized by redness and visible blood vessels.
  • Papulopustular Rosacea: Includes redness along with acne-like breakouts.
  • Phymatous Rosacea: Involves thickened skin with a bumpy texture.
  • Ocular Rosacea: Affects the eyes, causing redness, irritation, and possible vision issues.

At Dr. Faiez Ghanam Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we offer personalized rosacea treatments tailored to each patient’s unique needs. If you experience persistent redness or unexplained skin blemishes, our expert dermatologists are here to help.

Preparing for Rosacea Treatment

If you suspect you have rosacea, it’s crucial to consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and management. Early treatment can help manage symptoms and prevent the condition from worsening. Seek medical advice if you notice:


  1. Worsening Symptoms: Such as pimples, bumps, or visible blood vessels.
  2. Ocular Rosacea: Eye-related symptoms need immediate attention to prevent serious complications.
  3. Rhinophyma: Advanced symptoms like a large, bumpy, red nose should be addressed promptly.
