Rhinophyma is a skin condition affecting the nose, that causes it to become red, bumpy and oily looking. It is uncertain what causes this but rosacea and sun damage could be underlying factors of the condition.
It affects men more than women, usually between the ages of 25-50 years old and mostly people with fair skin. It can take several years to develop and usually affects the lower part of the nose.
As Rhinophyma progresses you may see the following symptoms on the nose:
- A bulbous appearance
- Enlarged pores
- Increase in oil production
- Thickening of the skin
- A waxy, yellowish appearance
What can be done for Rhinophyma?
Although there is no total cure for Rhinophyma, treatments can be effective in improving the appearance and prevent deterioration.
Laser therapy is most successful treatment for Rhinophyma. This reduces the bumpy appearance of the skin and leaves a smoother appearance when fully healed.
The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic, this numbs the area. Then a laser is used to ablate (get rid of) the top layer of skin and leave a smoother layer of skin when healed. There is very little/no bleeding as the laser cauterises (closes) the blood vessels as it gets rid of the bumpy skin.
After the procedure, you will be given advice on how to look after your skin. You will be able to wash carefully and may be given ointment to apply for several days. Healing will take approximately 2 weeks.
A minimum of 72 hours is required to reschedule, 7 days to cancel an appointment. Please see our T’s & C’s for full details.
