Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory, skin condition that affects more than eight million Canadians and 45 million men and women worldwide and is often mistaken for sensitive or acne-prone skin or allergies. The reality of rosacea for many means dealing with a long-term skin condition that can wreak havoc on skin causing redness on the face characterized by a tendency to flush and blush after exposure to various triggers such as stress, sunlight, spicy foods and alcohol.
Dr. Jason Rivers is regarded as one of Canada's top dermatologists, his cosmetic and medical dermatology practice Pacific Dermaesthetics, in Vancouver, is one of the largest of its kind in North America. Dr. Rivers is Board-certified in dermatology both in Canada and the USA, and serves on staff at St. Paul's Hospital. Dr. Rivers is also a Clinical Professor of dermatology at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, where he served as Dermatology program director for six years.
