What Causes Facial Redness and Rosacea?
This common skin disease affects both men and women and can cause individuals to blush more easily. Although characterized by visible redness along the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin, redness and Rosacea can have other symptoms as well such as:
- Visible blood vessels
- Swelling and acne-like breakouts
- Thickened skin with a bumpy texture
- Redness and irritation in the eyes
This condition can differ in severity as well as what parts of the body are affected. At Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, we offer multiple therapies to help you manage your symptoms and maintain clear, healthy skin.
Dr. Reger and our medical team use Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, to help manage the symptoms of multiple skin conditions, including excessive redness. This light-based treatment has the ability to gently heat underlying layers of skin and clear discoloration from the skin without injuring the surface or connective tissues.
Laser-Based Treatments for Redness and Rosacea
We also offer Erbium and Fractional CO2 lasers that can help clear certain instances of facial redness, although not all cases may qualify for this treatment method. Laser therapies can also target discoloration at the source underneath the skin while leaving healthy skin intact. Your individual condition will be evaluated during your consultation to determine if this treatment option is right for you.
This treatment has all the strength of a regular chemical peel but with less peeling time for faster results. The beneficial ingredients help the skin slough off dead cells for an overall refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
The gentle exfoliation ofmicrodermabrasion treatments has been shown to benefit certain cases of redness and discoloration while also creating an even skin tone and increasing the skin’s natural absorption.
Results may vary and multiple treatments and treatment sessions may be necessary to create the best results. Dr. Reger and our medical team will let you know what you can expect and recommend the most effective treatment combinations for your condition.
