The treatments are particular for each of the four main forms of rosacea, even though the symptoms tend to improve in less than a month, the desirable results occur in about two months.
To begin with, one of the most common form of rosacea it is known as Papulopustular, which isn't considered as a very serious strain of the infection, unlike the other forms. Symptoms usually include tiny pustules and also flushing, thin marks on the face, especially on the cheeks. For this form of rosacea the treatment consists of antibiotics and ointments.

Thirdly, another form of rosacea is Erythematotelangiectatic. It appears as thin, red lines on the face which usually cause a burning sensation and pain. In this case, the physician may prescribe oral medication, such as antibiotics which sometimes are associated with certain ointments. However, if the treatment doesn't offer an effective resolution to this strain of the Rosacea, then laser therapy may help in reducing the red lines on the skin.
Furthermore, there is another form of rosacea called Phymatous. In this case the symptoms include thick, bumpy skin and large pores.

But for the more severe forms it has been suggested that having laser surgery or rhinophyma action taken, in order to reshape the nose.
