Are you bothered by facial flushing and blushing, persistent facial redness, inflamed pimple-like bumps, or burning and grittiness of the eyes?

If so, you may suffer from Rosacea, an extremely common condition that affects an estimated 14 million Americans. It begins with facial flushing and blushing, and then progresses to persistent facial redness, broken facial blood vessels, and inflamed pimple-like bumps. Severe cases can results in permanent skin thickening of the central face called rhinophyma. Some patients with Rosacea also have an overabundance of oil gland growths called sebaceous hyperplasia.

It is most common in northern European and Celtic skin types. Rosacea is influenced by genetics, excess sun and hot water exposure, spicy foods, alcohol and stress.

While the exact cause of Rosacea is unknown and there is currently no cure, it can be controlled with lifestyle modifications, prescription topical and oral medications, and simple in-office surgical and laser treatments.

Patient Testimonials


Dr. Channing Barnett is an excellent dermatologist. Professional, knowledgeable, personable and never keeps you waiting or rushes you. I would refer any friend or family member to Dr. Barnett. She is truly a great dermatologist!


I have been a patient of Dr. jay Barnett for about 20 years. I have been so happy with the care I get in the office. Then I met Dr. Channing and she is a plus to the office. I have sent at least 10 new patients including my 88 year-old mom. Need I say more about a great father and daughter team.


I went to Dr. Barnett because I have been experiencing horrible adult acne for the past three months. I tried every product from drugstore topical treatments, expensive designer or name brand products, and was prescribed some antibiotics and a topical cream, but nothing was working. It had all been very stressful and I felt like I lost all my self-confidence and was desperate to try something that would work.

I just want to say how pleased I am with my procedure! Dr. Jay Barnett did an excellent, precise job with the silicone injections into my acne scars. I can finally walk around with confidence. This had done wonders for my self image. I only wish we took after pictures to see the mind blowing difference


Dear Dr. Channing Barnett, The internet has made searching for a doctor much easier. We can research a doctor's education, experience, location and review comments made by other patients. Still, there is a lot of luck involved in selecting the right doctor. I was very lucky. From the moment I walked through the door of Barnett Dermatology, I knew I made the right choice. Great doctor! Great team. Not only would I highly recommend Barnett Dermatology, but I am planning to go back myself. Thanks for being you
