Non Surgical Procedure to Fix Big Nose Due to Rosacea

Hi Doctor, I have Rosacea and my nose has gotten bigger from it in the last six months. Is there a procedure other than surgery that can be done to shrink or dissolve the fibrous tissue that has accumulated?

A rather simple and perhaps little known procedure in the office, that is the application of liquid nitrogen to the nose can significantly reduce the sebaceous/fibrous tissue contour irregularities associated with rhinophyma. Several sessions may be required. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist.
