Skin Redness Treatment

Skin redness is more than just the occasional blush or post-workout face. It’s an irritating and uncomfortable experience caused by a number of conditions. We’re here to help.

What Causes Redness On Skin?

There are many things that can cause your skin to become red or irritated. Here are some of the most common: 

  • Rosacea – A chronic skin condition that mainly affects the face, causing redness across your nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin that comes and goes. You may also experience a burning or stinging sensation when using water or skincare products. 
  • Acne – A common skin condition that can become inflamed to cause swelling, redness, and pores that are deeply clogged with bacteria.
  • Sunburn – Superficial burn on the outermost layer of skin. Causes redness, pain, swelling, and dry, peeling skin. 
  • First-Degree Burns – Minor swelling alongside dry, red, and tender skin that turns white when pressure is applied. 
  • Allergic Eczema – Also known as contact dermatitis, allergic eczema is an itchy skin rash that develops when you come into contact with an allergen. 

As our treatments are typically used to treat rosacea and acne, we’ll need to arrange a skin consultation to determine whether your condition is something we’re able to help with. If we find that our clinic treatments or home care products aren’t suitable, we’ll be sure to pass your details on to the right specialist who will prescribe the best medication for you. 

Laser Treatment For Rosacea

If your rosacea has caused visible blood vessels, we’ll include laser light therapy as part of your tailored treatment plan. This type of treatment uses heat from the wavelengths of light to collapse the visible red blood vessels, dramatically improving the texture of your skin.

How effective is laser treatment for rosacea? 

Though there’s no guarantee that laser light therapy will work for everybody with rosacea, many individuals have found combining laser treatment with a bespoke skincare regime makes for impressive results.

How to get rid of rosacea permanently?

Unfortunately there isn’t a cure for rosacea but there is a lot we can do to significantly reduce redness and improve the texture of your skin. Our aestheticians will take a look at the severity of your condition and recommend a personalised combination of light therapy sessions and skincare products to help keep your symptoms under control.

Acne And Rosacea Treatment

If your rosacea causes breakouts that look a lot like inflamed acne, laser light therapy can make a huge difference to the redness of your skin. This type of treatment is used to shrink any visible blood vessels and is incredibly safe as the light frequencies don’t contain any ultraviolet rays. The brief pulses of light energy only focus on the blood vessel, leaving the surrounding areas untouched.

Skin Peels For Rosacea

Skin peels help calm the symptoms of rosacea by exfoliating the top layer of your skin, preventing the pores from becoming clogged with dead skin cells. This type of treatment also helps to reduce inflammation and encourage skin healing. A particularly good skin peel for skin redness is Salicylic Azelaic acid, it helps to reduce inflammation and swelling.
