About Facial Redness
When redness is temporary and disappears spontaneously after a few minutes, it is called a “flush” or “blushing”. This usually affects the face (especially the nose and cheeks), neck and décolleté area and may be accompanied by a feeling of warmth, tingling and/or an increased heart rate.
Prolonged facial redness can also be diagnosed as rosacea. Experts are still unsure what causes rosacea and there’s no specific test for diagnoses. Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead.
Red Veins or Broken Capillaries
Commonly found on the nose and cheek areas, these small red or pink ‘threads’ are part of the extensive vein network that carries the blood supply of the face. When the walls of these tiny veins narrow and widen too quickly, they may tear, allowing blood to seep out and visibly mark the area of damage.
Dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin often has thinner tissue, which allows more trauma to the veins. While heredity usually plays a large part (fair, thin–skinned people are most prone), broken capillaries are also bought on by other conditions and exposures such as acne, smoking, high alcohol consumption, and exposure to wind, sun and extreme tempurture changes.
We recommend the Aura Laser and the VBeam laser for these conditions. Regular facials customized to your skin can also help calm inflammation and redness.
