Redness

Do you suffer from excessive facial redness or flushing? Facial redness occurs when veins become pronounced due to repeated capillary expansion, and can be attributed to sun damage, rosacea, or genes, among other things.

What are Facial Redness Treatments?

Facial redness treatment is an umbrella term for any procedure that’s designed to minimize the appearance of the flushed, red appearance that occurs as a result of broken capillaries. Once capillaries are broken or enlarged, they show through the skin and can’t be managed outside of medical intervention.

How Do Facial Redness Treatments Work?

Facial redness occurs as a result of veins becoming more pronounced, and are best treated with a vascular laser such as the Vbeam. The Vbeam laser works by heating up and thereby damaging the targeted veins, which are then absorbed by the body during the healing process.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Redness Treatments?

You’re a good candidate for facial redness treatments if you have visible facial veins or a flushed appearance. Facial redness treatments can be performed safely and effectively on all skin types.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

A typical treatment takes no longer than 15 minutes, with patients returning once a month for a series of sessions.

What Results Will I See?*

Most patients can expect to see significant reduction of facial redness after a series of 3-5 treatments. Your results will include a healthier, more even complexion as a result of minimized broken capillaries.

Is There Any Downtime?

Downtime will vary by the level of treatment performed, however, is generally limited to mild to moderate redness for a few hours following treatment. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear a physical SPF 50 sunscreen at all times in the weeks following treatment.
