What is Facial Redness?
Facial redness can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Simply, this is when the face, most commonly the cheeks are either permanently red or suffer from strong flushes. This could be rosacea, the precursor to rosacea, sun damage or other skin conditions.
What Causes Facial Redness?
This will really depend on what the facial redness is actually a symptom of. It may be worth seeing a doctor to find out if you are suffering from any particular skin condition, such as rosacea.
If the answer is rosacea, then unfortunately there is no definitive answer on the cause of this condition. There are certain know factors, such as diet, abnormalities in facial blood vessels and hereditary influences.
If the redness is caused by sun damage, then simply this is the damage caused to your skin by considerable sun exposure. Too much sun can cause pigmentation, affect skin tonality and affect the blood vessels below the skin.
How We Can Help:
No matter what the cause of your facial redness is, we can help. Our IPL equipment is specially designed to tackle redness on the cheeks and rest of the face, it will address overall chronic redness as well as flushes.
The IPL device emits a range of light waves which are precisely calibrated to target the haemoglobin in the blood vessels. These light beams pass through your skin and are absorbed by the haemoglobin resulting in damage to the blood vessel wall. This controlled injury to the blood vessels triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged tissue, thereby reducing redness.
If you feel that the redness is actually rosacea, or it has been diagnosed as such, then we can also help with nutritional consultations to help look at lifestyle changes and supplementations that could have a positive effect on the condition.
Your Next Step:
The first thing you should do is book yourself in for a free consultation. There is no need do anything before your consultation, though arriving without any makeup on can be helpful.
During the consultation, you will show the affected areas to the technician who will be able to recommend the best course of treatments and answer any questions that you may have.
Following that you will have a free patch test. That is the use of the IPL equipment on a small affected area to see how your skin reacts to it. Once you have shown no adverse reactions to the trial you can get booked in for a full course of treatments.
