Treating Facial Redness

Facial redness - What is it?

Facial redness is a common complaint of patients when the skin becomes more red over time. It may also happen from time to time, and we call that flushing.

Redness can come from a number of reasons, such as sun exposure, skin disease like Rosacea, or it may just be the natural skin colour of that particular patient.

It bothers patients because other people may perceive them as being embarrassed even when they're not.

How could it be treated?

There are many treatments that can help reduce facial redness and the treatment would really need to be tailored to each individual patient.

Number one - it's important not to forget that cosmetics can play a role to even out the appearance of the skin tone. This can make the face look redder.

Number two - sun avoidance can really help to prevent the redness from becoming worse over time.

For some patients getting on the right skincare regimen can reduce redness and for others, they may require treatments like laser or even intense pulsed light to reduce the redness.
