FACIAL REDNESS TREATMENT AT DERMCARE, MISSISSAUGA
Broken blood vessels, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and other conditions may cause facial redness. A person’s confidence and self-image can suffer as a result. Mississauga residents turn to DermCare for gentle and effective treatment.
CAUSES OF REDNESS
Rosacea is probably the best-known cause of facial redness. Symptoms include long-term reddening of the skin, especially around the nose. People with rosacea also tend to flush easily and experience temporary redness during flares.
CORRECTING FACIAL REDNESS
If you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about redness in your face, you are not alone. Many patients report negative impacts on their quality of life, sometimes even preventing them from participating in social activities.
Fortunately, treatment is available. The first step in correcting the redness is accurately identifying the root cause. When redness is a symptom, the best solution is controlling the underlying cause. Permanent red marks may require in-office treatment.
- PDL (Pulsed Dye Laser) – This vascular laser may be used on the face and other areas of the body. It is the most common therapy for broken vessels, port wine stains, and other persistent redness. A single session may be sufficient, or your dermatologist may recommend a series of laser treatments.
- Nd:Yag laser – This is another type of vascular laser. Treatment with Nd:Yag is similar to treatment with the pulsed dye laser.
- Home treatment – Sometimes the best thing for skin is improving your at-home care regimen. For example, if redness is a symptom of acne, then an appropriate topical serum may be effective. Your dermatologist will advise you of the best products for your skin type and condition. We generally recommend SkinCeuticals and La Roche products.
