Dr. Fazylova is one of the few rosacea specialists in NYC to use integrative and functional medicine to treat a wide variety of rosacea symptoms and conditions.

Rosacea Treatment

A soft rosy flush across your cheeks shows the world that you’re healthy, excited about life, and taking good care of yourself. But sometimes that rosy flush can be painful or can spread to other areas of your face such as the nose, forehead, and chin. Talk to your skin doctor or NYC rosacea specialist Dr. Fazilova to find a root cause and eliminate the symptoms.

Your skin can become rough and appear to break out in small bumps. That doesn’t mean you love life any less, but it can mean that you’ve developed a skin condition called rosacea. And having rough, irritated, red skin certainly can affect your quality of life.

Remember that regardless of the state of your skin, you’re a beautiful and valuable person. Your smile says more than the flush of your cheeks ever will.

Rosacea Basics

Rosacea isn’t contagious, but it affects as many as one in 10 people in NYC and around the country. It often manifests during your teenage years, and middle-aged women with rosacea may wonder why they’re suddenly having acne outbreaks again.

The good news is that treatment is available for rosacea, starting with a holistic approach and moving toward medical means for stubborn cases. Your integrative aestheticians at ReBalance of Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness in Manhattan may have just the right touch to get you through these disheartening moments.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

The name “rosacea” refers to the red or pink color of the characteristic facial rash. That’s often the first indicator that you have rosacea, especially if you know it can’t be chalked up to sunburn or a reaction to a new skincare product or makeup. There are four subtypes of rosacea:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is characterized by:
    • A flushed appearance
    • Red face
    • Visible blood vessels, which can look like broken capillaries or “spider veins”
  • Phymatous rosacea is characterized by:
    • Thickened skin, especially around the nose but this can occur anywhere on the face
    • Rough, bumpy skin
  • Papulopustular rosacea is characterized by:
    • Swelling
    • Redness
    • Breakouts, which can look like acne
  • Ocular rosacea is characterized by:
    • Swollen eyelids, in some cases
    • Redness around eyes
    • Eye irritation

If you have rosacea, you may notice an increased sensitivity to the sun and to products you use on your face like cleansers, makeup, toners, and even some over-the-counter moisturizers. You may blush easily and find that when you’re hot or engaging in exercise, your face becomes quite flushed. Rosacea symptoms can come and go, depending on your levels of stress, amount of time spent in the sun, and exposure to irritants.

A Whole-Body Approach

You already know that your outward appearance can be a reflection of how you’re feeling inside. A bright smile and pep in your step indicate that all is well in your world, while creases between your eyes and dull, dry skin can let others know that you’re not feeling well either physically or emotionally.

Sometimes, the appearance of rosacea can indicate that something isn’t agreeing with you. This could be something in your diet, how you deal with stress, or even how you stay in shape. Rosacea specialists including Dr. Fazilova agree that lifestyle changes can help control the symptoms of rosacea while making you feel better overall.

Out With the Bad…

The appearance of rosacea might just be the impetus you need to explore new ways of eating. Think of it as a dietary adventure, as you discover delicious new fruits and vegetables, savory recipes and salads, and unexpected combinations of ingredients. Start by reducing or eliminating common triggers for rosacea, such as:

  • Organ meats like liver
  • Some dairy, including yogurt and many kinds of cheese — but cottage cheese is okay
  • Chocolate
  • Vinegar and soy sauce
  • Yeast extract — the yeast found in bread is fine
  • Beans that grow in pods with broad leaves: navy, lima, peas
  • Citrus fruit
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes
  • Red plums
  • Figs
  • Raisins
  • Spinach
  • Avocado
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Processed and fried foods
  • Spicy food or food that’s served very hot

…In With the Good

So what can you eat to help control the symptoms of rosacea? A rosacea natural treatment can start with organic fruits and veggies. It starts your internal treatment. What a perfect time to start that garden you’ve always dreamed of. Create exciting new menus with foods like:

  • Leafy greens, other than spinach
  • Orange or yellow vegetables like carrots and bell peppers
  • Healthy fats in nuts and seeds; use olive, coconut, or sunflower oil in cooking and dressings
  • “Clean” proteins like salmon, cage-free eggs, and grass-fed meats
  • Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower
  • Onions, garlic, turmeric, and other herbs and seasonings to pack your food with flavor

Bear in mind that what may be irritating to some people, such as avocado, can also be a source of the good stuff, such as avocado oil, for other folks. That’s why it’s helpful to work with Dr. Fazilova a rosacea specialist in NYC, or your qualified dietician and nutritionist. Not only can they use their expertise to make the trial and error period go more smoothly, but they can also suggest healthy recipes and alternatives to your favorite foods that you might have had to eliminate.

Overall Well-Being

Stress can exacerbate the symptoms of rosacea, so think about ways to reduce its impact on your spirit. Yoga, meditation, gentle exercise like walks in the park, and time spent sipping tea with close friends can all aid the natural treatment of rosacea. Think about whether stressful situations will still feel hurtful in ten minutes, ten hours, and ten years from now. If the answer is no, try to let it go.

Take good care of your skin externally by protecting it from the sun and heat:

  • Always use sunscreen, even on overcast days.
  • Dress up your wardrobe with fun, funky sunhats, and oversized shades.
  • Avoid saunas, hot tubs, and very hot showers.
  • Consider forms of exercise that reduce the chance of overheating and sweating.

Remember that regardless of the state of your skin, you’re a beautiful and valuable person. Your smile says more than the flush of your cheeks ever will.

Medical Skin Treatment for Rosacea

Some serious cases of rosacea don’t respond fully to holistic and natural treatment, and that can affect your self-esteem and emotional health. In these cases, NYC rosacea specialist Dr. Fazilova suggests a medical intervention to treat rosacea:

  • Oral medication can help control the symptoms of rosacea in some people.
  • Antibiotics may be useful if the symptoms are caused by or lead to a bacterial infection.
  • Dermabrasion can remove layers of rough, thickened skin, exposing the smooth new skin below.
  • Laser treatments can zap away discoloration and address unsightly spider veins while increasing collagen production to give your skin an overall more youthful appearance.
  • Prescription eye drops can help manage the symptoms of ocular rosacea.

Even with medical treatment, it’s important to continue the skin treatment and whole-body care addressed above to help reduce the occurrence of outbreaks and keep your skin healthy overall. There’s never a bad reason to eat well and take good care of your beautiful skin.
