Introduction To The Treatment Of Redness

Redness is a very common indication that is experienced by many people at some time in their life, potentially causing psychological and self-confidence issues. Fortunately this can be treated with a Pulsed Dye Laser here at PHI Clinic, Harley Street, London.

Primarily, people will experience redness in the facial area – particularly around the nose, the cheeks, and the chin. This can be caused by a number of conditions, including congenital or age-related issues, as well as environmental factors such as over-exposure to sunlight.

Other Factors To Consider - PHI_April_2017_089 690x960

Other Factors To Consider

Redness is not always contained to the face and can be found in other areas of the body such as the elbows and other places in the form of light scarring, perhaps after a condition such as acne. It can also be formed when broken capillaries rise to the surface of the skin, forming spider veins that, if left untreated, can worsen over time.

As the condition can quickly degenerate and affect the individual on a greater scale, it is very important to seek advice from your clinician regarding treatment, as soon as possible. This can help you to manage the condition and its effects adequately, giving you the confidence you deserve.

Managing rosacea

To reduce the signs of rosacea, it is important that you understand outside factors that might influence its appearance, like getting too hot, being exposed to extreme weather conditions or eating certain foods. When you know what causes your redness to worsen, you can take steps towards avoiding these triggers, thus reducing the severity of the condition.

Reducing Sun Damage
One factor that is not considered by many people is the use of sun protection, which is needed all year round to maintain healthy skin. This is often overlooked, but even using a cream with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 can reduce the damage caused by UV rays.

We advise using mild skincare products, so as not to irritate your skin, as well as being gentle when washing your face, to avoid causing a flare up. You should use lukewarm or cold water to wash your face, rather than hot, and avoid rubbing your skin with a towel, but pat dry instead.
