Red skin isn’t necessarily a sign of a skin problem, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying. While redness can be due to irritants, sun exposure, insect bites, or countless medical conditions, it can also be a symptom of rosacea. This condition affects an estimated 14 million Americans and is most common in middle-aged women with fair skin. It can be acute or chronic, disappearing and reappearing over time and changing in intensity. If left untreated, rosacea can actually worsen over time, with new flare-ups becoming more intense.
Treat both generalized redness and rosacea with a selection of cosmetic procedures. These options will help you minimize redness and improve skin tone and texture.
Whether you have rosacea or just localized redness, stimulating the skin will help improve discoloration and clear your complexion.
Please note that although patients see an improvement from a single treatment, up to 4 treatments may be necessary for full correction.
These treatment options approach skin redness in varying ways; one may be right for you. Get in touch to learn whether intense pulsed light, one of our resurfacing lasers, or a personally formulated chemical peel could help improve your red skin.
