Update on the Management of Rosacea from the American Acne & Rosacea Society (AARS).

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol. 2020 Jun;13(6 Suppl):17-24

Authors: Del Rosso JQ, Tanghetti E, Webster G, Stein Gold L, Thiboutot D, Gallo RL

Importance: Previous consensus articles on rosacea from the American Acne and Rosacea Society (AARS) have focused on pathophysiology, clinical assessment based on phenotypic expressions of rosacea, management guidelines, discussions of individual medical therapies, and reviews of physical modalities. Pathophysiologic mechanisms believed to be operative in rosacea have been covered extensively in the literature. Objective: This article updates the previously published consensus recommendations from the AARS on the management of rosacea, including systematic literature and evidence-based reviews of available therapeutic agents and physical modalities. Observations: This article includes discussions of available published data on topical ivermectin, topical oxymetazoline, combination therapy approaches, and physical devices for the management of rosacea. Consistent with what many publications on rosacea currently emphasize, clinicians are encouraged to define the clinical manifestations present in the patient and to select therapies that correlate with the optimal treatment of those manifestations. There are less data available on how to optimally integrate therapies; however, it appears that rationally selected medical therapies can be utilized concurrently. Conclusion: Due to the multifactorial pathogenesis of rosacea, its clinical presentation is heterogeneous. Rosacea is a chronic and recurrent inflammatory disorder, and clinical manifestations often vary in nature and severity over time, which might necessitate an adjustment in treatment. As new data become available, rosacea management approaches should be updated.
