Facial redness is irritating and uncomfortable. People experience facial redness when they feel warm or work out, get emotional, drink alcohol, eat spicy foods, or get nervous. This redness is typically caused by an increased number of superficial blood vessels just below the surface of the skin. It could also be a result of repeated sun exposure. In more extreme cases, it may also be the result of the condition called rosacea.
If you have rosacea, you’re not alone. An estimated 14 million Americans, most in their 30s and 40s, are affected by this chronic skin condition. Rosacea usually begins as a simple tendency to flush or blush easily. Eventually, symptoms progress to a persistent redness in the center of the face, particularly the nose. Small blood vessels swell and become visible, and in some cases, pimples may appear across the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin.
Rosacea is not curable, but its symptoms are very treatable. In most cases, early treatment is most effective. For both rosacea and general facial redness treatments, a combination of in-office procedures and products can decrease the appearance of facial redness. Schedule your appointment at any of our Minneapolis-area offices to talk to a dermatologist about your options for facial redness treatment.
The best treatments for redness on face will depend on the individual and the condition causing the redness. In most cases, your doctor will recommend one or more of the following procedures, all of which can be conducted in our offices.
- Laser Therapy: A facial redness laser treatment can substantially reduce redness and visible blood vessels. This treatment works by using a laser to collapse small red blood vessels. It is very effective and mostly painless, but multiple treatments are needed for best results.
- Chemical Peels: Ongoing treatment with chemical peels may minimize the appearance of redness and treat other rosacea symptoms. Talk to your doctor about specific chemical peel options.
- Medical Skin Care Products: Choosing products to gently care for your skin without causing flare-ups is key. If you have rosacea, many drug-store products will worsen your symptoms. Talk to your dermatologist about finding products that work for your sensitive skin.
You may not mind your facial redness, but this doesn’t mean you should rule out a visit to the dermatologist. Excessive redness may be a circumstantial occurrence, but it might also point to a more chronic condition. In most cases, a facial redness treatment could provide both temporary and long-lasting relief from symptoms.
