Celebrities with Rosacea
Some of the Most Well-Known People in the World Live with this Common Condition
Rosacea can cause many people to experience low self-esteem and become frustrated with the effect it has on their appearance… because they think it is beyond their control. But the fact is, rosacea can be effectively treated – and what’s more, some of our most successful and beautiful people are known to have the condition.
Millions of people all over the world have rosacea, a disease that can cause redness and flushing in the face, and even lead to spider veins and enlarged oil glands on the skin. What may not be very well-known is that a number of famous faces, both past and present, also have rosacea – and it hasn’t stopped them from looking and feeling fantastic. Some celebrities who are known to have or have had rosacea include:
- Renée Zellweger
- Bill Clinton
- Mariah Carey
- Cameron Diaz
- Lady Diana
- Rosie O’Donnell
- Alex Ferguson
And there’s many more where that came from.
While there is no guaranteed treatment that can prevent the recurrence of rosacea, there are a variety of advanced techniques that can treat its symptoms and there are things that you can do to reduce the potential for flare-ups as well. Here at Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar, Dr. Deborah Atkin offers VBeam Perfecta® pulsed-dye laser treatment, a procedure which has shown remarkable results at reducing the redness and tingling sensation that often characterizes rosacea. We also offer oral medications, prescription topical creams, and medical-grade skincare products that can help reduce some of the symptoms of rosacea. Reducing sun exposure and avoiding rosacea “triggers” such as alcohol, spicy foods, saunas, and other factors may also help to diminish the frequency of symptoms.
