You Don't Have to Struggle with Facial Redness

Facial redness can be irritating and uncomfortable.  You may notice your redness increases when you 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 or as a result of repeated sun exposure.  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 and early treatment is often 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.

Typical facial redness treatments:

  • Laser Therapy: Substantially reduces redness and visible blood vessels. Multiple treatments are needed for best results.
  • Chemical Peels: On-going treatment may minimize the appearance of redness and treat other rosacea symptoms.
  • 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 actually worsen your symptoms.
