Before & After Treatments

What are Rosacea, Red Spots & Cherry Angiomas?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes the face to look red or flushed. For most, the flushed appearance comes and goes as the skin responds to “triggers” such as sunlight, alcohol or spicy foods. Many people with rosacea notice that their skin feels somewhat raw or sensitive. It is also not uncommon to notice visible blood vessels and experience itching, eye irritation, pimples and bumps. Rosacea often affects the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. The “flushed” appearance can be accompanied by a sense of warmth. The condition is often detected more frequently in women, yet tends to manifest with greater severity in men. Rosacea is best managed through a combination of medical interventions and lifestyle adjustments.

Rosacea Triggers

The exact cause of rosacea is not well understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and vascular factors. Several triggers can worsen the condition, including:

  • Certain Foods Spicy foods, hot beverages, alcohol and foods high in histamines may trigger or worsen symptoms in some individuals.
  • Environmental Factors Exposure to sunlight, hot or cold weather, wind and humidity can exacerbate rosacea symptoms.
  • Emotional Stress Stress and emotional factors can lead to flushing and worsen symptoms.
  • Skin Care Products Some skincare products and cosmetics, particularly those that contain alcohol or other irritants, can trigger or worsen symptoms.
  • Medications Certain medications, such as topical steroids, may worsen rosacea in some cases.

Rosacea Quick Facts

  • 1 in 20 Americans are impacted by rosacea (over 16 million people)
  • UV Exposure is the #1 trigger for rosacea
  • 51% report missing work due to their condition
  • Lower self-confidence is reported by 90% of those who struggle with Rosacea

Different Types

Rosacea Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by redness, visible blood vessels, and bumps on the face. It is often triggered by factors such as stress, spicy foods, and exposure to extreme temperatures.

Red Spots Red spots on the skin have various causes, ranging from acne and allergic reactions to more serious conditions. It's essential to consult with a professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Cherry Angiomas Cherry angiomas are small, bright red, raised bumps that occur on the skin, often on the trunk, arms, and legs. They are benign vascular growths that typically occur in middle-aged and older adults.

Red Spots

Red spots are skin abnormalities characterized by red or purplish discolorations on the skin. These spots are caused by an abnormal clustering of blood vessels near the skin's surface. Vascular red spots can occur at birth (congenital) or develop later in life. Red spots is a broad term encompassing various skin abnormalities, that may result from a range of factors, and can necessitate different treatment approaches based on specific causes

Spider veins can present as red spots on the surface of the skin. Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, dilated blood vessels near the skin's surface. They often appear as a network of fine, red or blue lines resembling spider webs or tree branches. Spider veins can develop on the face, legs, or other parts of the body and may be associated with factors like sun exposure, aging, varicose veins or hormonal changes.

Cherry angiomas

Cherry angiomas are common benign skin growths or lesions that typically appear as small, round, bright red or cherry-red bumps on the skin's surface. They can range in size from a tiny pinhead to a quarter of an inch in diameter. These growths are most commonly found on the arms, legs, or trunk, but they can also occur on other parts of the body. They are typically harmless but can be removed for cosmetic or medical reasons.

The exact cause of cherry angiomas is not fully understood, but they are believed to be related to the aging process and genetic factors. Many individuals develop multiple cherry angiomas as they age. Cherry angiomas are generally harmless and painless, and they do not usually require treatment unless they become irritated, bleed, or are cosmetically bothersome.

Certain types of scarring can also manifest as red spots on the skin. This occurrence is often associated with vascular or inflammatory scars, where the healing process involves increased blood flow to the affected area. As the skin heals, the concentration of blood vessels near the surface can create red discoloration, making these scars more noticeable. Understanding the diverse ways in which scars can present helps tailor effective treatment approaches to address specific characteristics and promote optimal scar reduction. Milwaukee Laser & Body Aesthetics is Southeastern Wisconsin’s leader in scar reduction treatments. Please view our scar reduction page to learn more about how we can treat your scar.
