Chicago’s Choice for Effective Rosacea Treatments

Even in the best circumstances, being the center of attention can be daunting. But for those with rosacea, it’s even harder to make great first impressions or to appear cool, confident, and collected. Persistent blushing makes us look winded or addled. Our inflamed cheeks suggest we’ve just run up several flights of stairs or stayed in the sun too long. Over time, rosacea can even enlarge our noses or cause blood vessels to swell so they’re visible through the skin. Taken together, these symptoms add up.

At Skin MD, LLC, in Chicago, IL, we know how uncomfortable and unwanted rosacea can be. Even though rosacea gets less attention than acne or eczema, it affects one out of every 10 Americans. Now, with modern treatments and advanced skin science, we can help you manage rosacea’s worst symptoms. Put your best face forward by turning down the heat on your skin. Contact Skin MD today!

For many, the most aggravating part of life with rosacea is the mysterious flare-ups. Sometimes, it seems like nearly anything can cause sudden redness, burning, and stinging. While rosacea triggers differ from person to person, some causes are more common than others.

  • Temperature extremes (hot & cold)
  • Strong wind
  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight
  • Spicy foods
  • Exercise
  • Stress

Dr. Sergeyenko is fantastic. He’s very detailed and attentive and seems to really care about patients. The office is very well run and uses the right amount of technology to execute their business…but you can always get a human on the line if you need to. Flexible hours, too.
