Thankfully, dermatologists in Nashville, Tennessee have access to a multitude of treatments for rosacea. Many of the treatments are easy to use, affordable, and have no side effects.
A dermatologist or dermatology nurse practitioner in Tennessee can talk with you about your triggers, how you manage them, and then develop a personalized treatment plan and skincare regimen.
Prescription treatments for rosacea include numerous topical options (a product placed on top of the affected skin) and oral options (a pill that can target deeper layers of skin that the topical cream can’t reach).
Many rosacea patients need a maintenance treatment plan and a flare treatment plan. The maintenance plan involves prevention and lifestyle modifications, as well as one or two prescription lotions for daily use. Flare plans usually involve an oral pill to treat the deeper skin inflammation that creams can’t reach. Remember, the skin is designed to be a barrier so though topical treatments can be very effective long term, an oral pill may be needed for the persistent and hard to access deep inflammation of the skin.
Common Prescription Treatments For Rosacea are:
- Metronidazole cream/lotion/gel
- Soolantra / Ivermectin lotion
- Bionect gel
Laser treatment is also available for rosacea. The treatment minimizes rosacea for 2-3 years. It is not covered by insurance.
