What is the difference between Couperosis and rosacea?


This chronic skin condition results in redness, often accompanied by a feeling of warmth, usually on the cheeks, but also on the nose, forehead and chin. These symptoms are due to a network of small dilated blood vessels, mainly due to heredity, but their emergence can be influenced by hormonal and environmental factors.


Rosacea is an inflammatory condition of the facial skin that affects 2% to 3% of adults. It is characterized by dilated blood vessels, redness and hot flashes. Rosacea can be accompanied as well by very dehydrated patches of skin or even small red or white spots. Untreated, rosacea can get worse over time. The cause of this disease remains unknown to this day and unfortunately there is no cure to eliminate this progressive disorder. We can only control it.
