Top Rosacea Treatments: Expert Recommendations

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects millions, characterized by redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes acne-like bumps on the face. Managing rosacea can be challenging, but with the right treatments, many people see significant improvements. 


At Academic Alliance in Dermatology, we combine advanced technology, medication, and tailored skincare routines to effectively manage rosacea symptoms. Here’s a closer look at the top treatments that can help control this condition and why professional guidance is key.

Laser Treatments for Rosacea

Laser therapy stands out as one of the most effective treatments for reducing the redness and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea. Techniques like Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy and Broad Band Light (BBL) therapy are both effective options offered at Academic Alliance in Dermatology. 

Customized Treatment Plans

Each rosacea case is unique, which is why laser treatments are customized based on the severity and specific characteristics of your rosacea. Multiple sessions are often required for optimal results, and our dermatology providers at Academic Alliance in Dermatology will develop a treatment plan tailored just for you.


Topical Treatments

For many patients, topical medications are a cornerstone of rosacea management. These can include metronidazole, ivermectin, and azelaic acid, which work by reducing inflammation and redness.

Oral Medications

In more severe cases, oral antibiotics or isotretinoin may be prescribed to reduce inflammation and clear acne-like lesions. It’s important to note that medication effectiveness can vary, and what works for one person may not work for another, underscoring the importance of professional oversight.


A key element in managing rosacea is adopting a skincare routine that is gentle on the skin and avoids triggering flare-ups. Products should be non-irritating, fragrance-free, and designed for sensitive skin. Sun protection is also crucial, as UV exposure can exacerbate rosacea symptoms.

Professional Skincare Recommendations

Our dermatology providers can recommend products that not only soothe rosacea-prone skin but also protect it from environmental factors. We often suggest mineral-based sunscreens and moisturizers that strengthen the skin’s barrier function.
