What causes facial redness?
Facial redness can be caused by a number of factors that result in inflammation and dilation of the underlying vessels leading to an increase of blood flow to the skins surface. Medical conditions such as such as rosacea, lupus or dermatitis will contribute to facial redness. For some, flushing and blushing without any underlying medical concern can be a normal part of life, this can be triggered by factors such as stress, hormones, temperature, and like many other skin concerns can be inherited.
Will I always be prone to facial redness?
While some people will have a genetic predisposition to developing facial redness, blushing, flushing and chronic skin conditions such as rosacea. The first step is to have a correct diagnosis, treatment and manage any trigger factors. Taking measures to prevent sun damage, adopting good lifestyle habits in regards to smoking, alcohol, diet and exercise, managing stress, hormones and adopting a good skin care regime will all have positive benefits for the skin and reduce the occurrence of facial redness.
What treatments are effective for facial redness?
Treatments can be very effective for the reduction of facial redness, the treatment type will depend on the your skin type and severity, including any underlying skin conditions such as rosacea.
- Intense Pulse Light – As the applicator is taken over the skin the light energy is released and absorbed by the blood within the dilated vessels. This causes a rapid heating of the blood which destroys them and allows your body to gradually break them down. This treatment will also be beneficial for reducing facial redness and managing symptoms of rosacea.
- Regenlite – vascular laser treatment – . It works in a very similar way to IPL however this is a pulse dye laser, not a impulse light therapy. Treatment will target the dilated blood, resulting in a heating and coagulation, allowing your body to effectively remove it. This treatment will also help to reduce inflammation and stimulate collagen. This is another great treatment option for managing facial redness and symptoms of rosacea.
