Is there a Rosacea cure?
Many of our patients' may claim their Rosacea is cured because they no longer see the symptoms of Rosacea on their skin. The reality is that these diseases are genetically linked and commonly the disease may return once the Rosacea triggers are reintroduced. This is where the education component of our treatment program is essential in teaching the patient not to make the mistakes they've made in the past and then perhaps there will be some justification in the statement, "my rosacea is cured".
