Redness on the skin is a common condition that many people will experience in their lifetime. It is mainly present in the facial area, especially around the nose, cheeks and chin, however, other areas of the skin can be affected such as the chest and elbows. Although this concern does not pose any serious health problems, it can highly affect people’s self-esteem, which is why many clients choose to treat redness, either through lifestyle changes or aesthetic therapies.
What Causes Redness?
A common cause of redness on the skin can be from the aftermath of acne, a condition that affects many people primarily in their teenage years. This often shows up in the form of a light scarring.
Additionally, redness can be formed from broken capillaries in the face or spider veins that, if left untreated, can worsen over time.
There are also a few factors which may affect redness and rosacea, such as sun damage and skincare. Using sun cream and using mild skincare can help to reduce flare-ups.
Certain triggers such as alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods have also been linked to making rosacea symptoms appear worse.
How We Treat Redness At PHI Clinic
So what is the best way to treat redness? As all skin types are different, the answer may differ between clients. At PHI, we are passionate about providing a solution and an effective regime tailored to each individual patient, housing the largest range of devices in the UK.
We offer a range of laser treatments to help you reduce redness including the new Excel V+, Pulsed Dye Laser and M22.
The Excel V+ laser uses a high power green laser in order to target blood vessels and pigment with abnormalities. This allows the skin to return to a more natural colour and tone. Excel V+ is a fast and easy treatment. It is the most advanced aesthetic laser technology, combining two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate unwanted reds, browns, purples and blues on the face and body.
Pulsed Dye Laser
Pulsed Dye Laser can be very effective in treating redness and other issues including face veins. The pulsed dye laser releases long pulses of energy to the epidermis (the top layer of skin), which is drawn to the redness in the skin. The device helps to coagulate the blood and cauterise veins to reduce the flushed look while removing diseased and dead skin cells to give patients a refreshed appearance. This treatment is minimally invasive, does not require anaesthetic to be administered, and depending on the individual patient’s condition, can be done in a matter of minutes.
The M22 is a pioneering aesthetic treatment that combines an IPL, a multi-spot ND Yag and a fractional resurfacing application. The applications can be combined for bespoke treatments which enable us to address acne, rosacea and various types of pigmentation in order to improve texture and tone. This is a multi-functional tool that can be used on both the face and body to achieve dramatic results and is a tailored procedure that will be completely unique to the individual.
