Rosacea: An Introduction

Increased Expression of VEGF


Researchers have noted that increased expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which plays a role in angiogenesis, was found only in rosacea-affected skin samples.

Interestingly, the study found no difference in VEGF levels between rosacea subtypes 1 and 2, which suggests that telangiectasia may be present in each.
