Rhinophyma is a subtype of severe rosacea. This concern, often referred to as a “bulbous nose,” is characterized primarily by enlarged sebaceous tissue, enlarged pores, blood vessels, and redness in the nose. It can cause severe enlargement and distortion of the nose resulting in psychological distress and social embarrassment. At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we offer the Vbeam® Prima Laser, Active FX™ CO2 Laser, surgical, and Wire Loop treatment options to help address this issue.
Each patient is evaluated to determine the best treatment options for them. We use our array of treatment options to create amazing results, and treatment can really change the patient’s appearance and outlook. If you’re longing for a good solution to this problem, we welcome you to schedule an appointment at our Fresno center today.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Is a Rhinophyma?
Rhinophyma is a skin disorder that affects the nose, causing it to become large, red, and bumpy. It often occurs in those who also struggle with rosacea. The exact cause of rhinophyma is currently unknown, but it’s considered a subtype of severe rosacea. This nose deformity is mostly seen in men over the age of 50 and can have a negative impact on one’s confidence. If you suffer from this issue, we urge you to get in touch with our center today.
What Are the Signs of Rhinophyma?
This condition is progressive and can get worse over time. Initially, symptoms may be redness, flushing, and irritation around the nose. Over time, the nose may grow and take on a more swollen appearance. This phenomenon is often accompanied by enlarged skin pores, a reddish skin tone, ticker outer skin, and a waxy, yellowish appearance. If these symptoms sound familiar to you, don’t worry, we’re here to help.
