Rosacea coverage at AAD Denver 2014

Written by on January 15, 2014 in in the news with 2 Comments


The annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology is to be held in March in Denver, Colorado.

The popularity of the  topic of rosacea seems to have waxed and waned over the years. This year there are mentions in keynote and symposium sessions for rosacea. It doesn’t seem like rosacea will have much of a profile this year.

Following are the rosacea topics listed to run in Denver.

    I really would like to see the dermatologists exert their collective influence to have insurance companies pay out on some IPL or Yag laser treatments as these are not always performed for cosmetic reasons. In my own instance I experience a neurogenic burn that has not been alleviated by antibiotics, oral or topical. This burning not cosmetic redness is my main issue. It is my understanding that these treatments IPL and laser are not without risk and I doubt people would engage their use cavalierly. It all begs the question “Why are laser and IPL treatments so pricey?” Will they come down in price? These issues I would like to see discussed to get us put of the Middle Ages.
