What is the best treatment for mild rhinophyma?
1 year ago
My dermatologist recommended dermabrasion for mild rhinophyma but stated, due to the difficulty of resurfacing, the tip of my nose could not be treated. Is this a standard problem? Is there a better alternative which would allow more satisfactory results?

Rhinophyma can be improved with a combination of laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Melapads, and dermabrasion. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
Thanks for your query.Rhinophyma can be corrected surgically and gives very satisfactory results. You can post a picture of yours or can visit a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for better consultation and resuts. Hope it helps.
