Dermatology at The GW Medical Faculty Associates is conducting an experimental research study to examine the efficacy of 5-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (5-ALA PDT) in treating rosacea. The purpose of this study is to evaluate if using 5-ALA PDT improves rosacea symptoms. We are seeking individuals with rosacea between the ages of 18 and 79 to volunteer to participate in this study. This study will take a total of six months (six total visits to the MFA). Prior to each visit, you will be examined and fill out a questionnaire. Participation in the study will be of no direct cost to you. If you are interested in participating in this research study, please contact Dermatology atThe GW Medical Faculty Associates.
