Developed by a consensus committee and review panel of 27 rosacea experts worldwide, the updated guidelines are intended to provide a comprehensive summary of treatment options for the respective phenotypes identified in the recently updated standard classification of rosacea, allowing physicians to tailor therapy for each individual case to achieve optimal patient outcomes.

Abstract
In 2017, a National Rosacea Society Expert Committee developed and published an updated classification of rosacea to reflect current insights into rosacea pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and management. These developments suggest that a multivariate disease process underlies the various clinical manifestations of the disorder. The new system is consequently based on phenotypes that link to this process, providing clear parameters for research and diagnosis as well as encouraging clinicians to assess and treat the disorder as it may occur in each individual. Meanwhile, a range of therapies has become available for rosacea, and their roles have been increasingly defined in clinical practice as the disorder has become more widely recognized. This update is intended to provide a comprehensive summary of management options, including expert evaluations, to serve as a guide for tailoring treatment and care on an individual basis to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
