Facial Redness (Erythema)

Facial redness can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from temporary conditions like sunburn or allergic reactions to chronic skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema.

Common Causes Of Facial Redness

Sun exposure: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can cause sunburn, which leads to redness, inflammation, and peeling of the skin. Chronic sun exposure can also exacerbate underlying skin conditions such as rosacea.

Rosacea: Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by facial flushing, persistent redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes papules and pustules. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune factors.

Allergic reactions: Allergens such as pollen, pet dander, certain foods, or skincare products can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals, leading to facial redness, itching, swelling, and other symptoms.

Skin irritation: Harsh skincare products, abrasive exfoliants, hot water, and friction from rubbing or scratching can irritate the skin and cause redness, inflammation, and sensitivity.

Eczema: Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, red, and inflamed patches of skin. Eczema flare-ups can be triggered by various factors, including stress, allergens, irritants, and changes in weather.

Acne: Acne breakouts can cause redness and inflammation in affected areas of the face, particularly in the presence of inflammatory acne lesions such as papules, pustules, and nodules.

Treatment Options For Facial Redness

Treatments depend on underlying causes and a consult with a dermatologist should take place before undergoing any treatment plan.

Excel® V+

Excel V uses a dual laser system the targets blood vessels that are responsible for causing facial redness. The procedure is highly customizable to treat more than 20 skin concerns. Laser energy is absorbed by hemoglobin in the veins, and the heat causes photocoagulation. Heat is transferred to the vessel wall, which ultimately destroys the vessels.


Complete Skin Rejuvenation

NeoSkin is the perfect anti-aging solution for all ages and all skin types who either want to keep their skin clear and youthful or for those that want to turn back the clock and regain a youthful complexion.

This safe, effective, and tolerable treatment is quickly becoming the ‘go-to’ therapy for patients wanting clear, beautiful skin.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis works by heating the dermis directly under the skin. The heat from the laser constricts blood vessels, which helps fight redness and rosacea. It’s a very gentle and fast laser treatment that promotes collagen growth.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

IPL uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples, and uneven skin tones caused by the condition.


HydraFacial uses Vortex Fusion technology to deeply cleanse and exfoliate with a gentle peel to uncover a new layer of skin, removes impurities from pores with a painless gentle suction, and saturates the skin’s surface with moisturizers and antioxidants.

Add on a customized booster serum to reduce visible signs of redness, optimize hydration, and provide free radical protection.

Plus, red light therapy to increase energy production in the cells and reduce inflammation.

It’s essential to consult with a dermatologist or healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause of facial redness and develop an appropriate treatment plan tailored to individual skin type, concerns, and medical history. Consistent skincare practices, including gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, are also essential for maintaining healthy, radiant skin and reducing the risk of facial redness.
