Rhinophyma

Rhinophyma Laser Treatment in Santa Rosa, CA

Rhinophyma is a serious and progressive skin condition that affects the nose causing the nose to appear bulbous, bumpy, and red. Overactive oil-producing glands or sebaceous glands cause rhinophyma. In some cases, if rhinophyma is left untreated, the growth can become disfiguring. Rhinophyma has been referred to as an alcoholic’s nose, however, rhinophyma is not associated with alcoholism.

At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA, Dr. Greg Chernoff treats rhinophyma patients with advanced laser technology.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risks and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.

What Is Rhinophyma And How Is It Treated?

Rhinophyma is a condition that is typically seen in individuals who have rosacea. If rosacea goes untreated, the nose becomes redder, swollen at the end, and appears bumpy. This swelling is because there is the formation of scar-like tissue and the sebaceous glands get bigger.

Although rosacea affects women more than men, rhinophyma mainly affects fair-skinned men aged 50 to 70 years. Rhinophyma can occur as a more severe stage of rosacea. However, some people do have rhinophyma without having rosacea.

In most cases, Dr. Chernoff uses a C02 Laser to remove the overgrowth of oil glands which removes the rhinophyma. The results are immediate and permanent. Patients who have been treated for rhinophyma are extremely happy with their results.

In addition to removing the Rhinophyma, Dr. Chernoff may also use a multi-modality laser treatment in the office to improve the appearance of broken facial capillaries which will improve the appearance of redness.

During your consultation, Dr. Chernoff will explain the procedures, recovery, and expected results.
