Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, dilated blood vessels on facial skin, papules, pustules, and mild swelling. It often appears across the cheeks, nose, and forehead.
Sclerotherapy decreases the appearance of rosacea through the injection of a mild sclerosant into the dilated vessels. The treatment lasts 15-20 minutes and has very few side effects (mild local bruising). Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.
