Rosacea (roh-ZAY-sha) is a skin condition where the small blood vessels in the facial
skin appear at or very near the surface, creating a permanent or semi-permanent
flushed and/or reddish appearance.
Rosacea is a common skin condition affecting over 13 million Americans. Although
it is a very common skin condition, there is poor awareness among the general population
about the condition. Approximately 78 percent of Americans have no knowledge of
Rosacea, and because there is no simple cure for the condition, it can be a burdensome
aesthetic and emotional issue for those that have it.

Before and After Pictures
Rosacea is a genetically linked condition that normally shows up
in those over the age of 30 and of Northern European descent, although it can occur
in other skin types as well. As the baby boomer population ages, the number of Americans
with Rosacea has steadily increased.
According to the National Rosacea Society, nearly 70 percent of Rosacea patients
said the condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41 percent
reported it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.
In addition, in Rosacea patients with severe symptoms, nearly 70 percent said the
disorder had adversely affected their professional interactions, and nearly 30 percent
said they had even missed work because of their condition.
There is no cure for Rosacea, but there are ways to control the signs and symptoms
of the skin disorder. Let Celibre help you treat Rosacea.
According to the National Rosacea Foundation, the exact cause of Rosacea is still
largely unknown, however the symptoms are reasonably well understood as are a variety
of lifestyle factors that are known to trigger outbreaks in people that have the
disease. Lifestyle factors that can affect Rosacea breakouts include sun exposure,
spicy foods or drink, alcohol, caffeine, abrasive or harsh skin creams and treatments,
heavy exercise and tobacco products.
