Quetion for Dr. Rivkin about Resty & Rosacea

Postby janeb1 » Tue Feb 23, 2010 11:01 am

Dr. Rivkin,
I have very mild Rosacea. I have very fair skin, am prone to blushing/flushing, and get occasional redness with a few bumps/pimples that go away on their own. I am very interested in having Juvederm or Restylane to correct my tear troughs. My question is this: Will either of these fillers exacerbate my Rosacea? I understand it is difficult to say without seeing me, but in your experience do Rosacea patients generally do okay with fillers?
