If you think you may have rosacea, please contact us at Juniper Dermatology to make sure you get the right diagnosis and appropriate care to control the symptoms of rosacea.

Controlling symptoms of rosacea is extremely important as a lack of treatment will result in increasing facial redness, telangiectasias (broken blood vessels), eye disease, and sometimes disfiguration of the nose (rhinophyma).
