In brief: Lifelong

Rosacea is a lifelong condition.
Management will keep the symptoms minimized. Many topical treatments and laser treatments can assist many with rosacea to manage these symptoms. As hormonal changes occur, the skin also reacts which can cause these symptoms to change throughout ones life.

In brief: Chronic

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition affecting the skin of the face, which is characterized by exacerbations and remissions throughout the life of the sufferer. The rash is acneiform and is amenable to treatment, but there is no cure, although some cases do go into permanent remission.

Once you are diagnosed with rosacea, there are things like ipl treatments that can be attempted to improve the condition - but nothing cures it or makes it go away!
