Redness and/or Flushing Of The Face Treatment

Redness Face Treatment

There are several skin conditions that can be covered up by makeup. This includes minor cases of hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation. However, flushing and facial redness is not something that can be covered up easily. Flushing and facial redness in response to an embarrassing situation or exercise is not problematic. However, for individuals that suffer consistent flushing, it can become a huge problem. Their skin color may change even when they are not exerting themselves. For instance, they may develop facial redness after coming in contact with wind, when they get nervous, or when they drink alcohol. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by board certified physician Dr. Bijan Farah, provides IPL Photofacial Broadband Light (BBL) skin care treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Common Causes

These are a few common causes of flushing and facial redness:
  • Rosacea
  • Sun damage
  • Genetics
  • Sensitive skin
  • Acne scarring
Facial redness to an extent is caused because of large quantities of superficial blood vessels. They flush easily when you have sensitive skin as well. Excessive flushing can be effectively reversed through IPL treatment in many people. These treatments have grown in popularity since they don’t involve nay downtime and can be completed in a few minutes. They are also highly effective.

Functioning of IPL Photofacial

IPL is an acronym for Intense Pulsed Light and is also called photo-rejuvenation. The med spa procedure is performed using devices that emit light of different wavelengths. This makes the procedure different from other laser procedures that only involve a single wavelength of light. Wider range of skin conditions can be treated since multiple light wavelengths are used in the procedure. The device was designed with the sole purpose of treating different types of skin. Dramatic reduction in flushing and facial redness has been shown through a series of IPL treatments. A device is scanned over the area for performing the procedure. The patient is left with mildly red skin once the procedure is complete. However, the redness dissipates slowly after an hour. There is little to no downtime required since your skin is not broken or wounded in any way. The procedure may not require you to change your daily activities or schedule as well. The ability to remove red or brown spots is an unintentionally positive side effect of these treatments. IPL Photofacial is a transformative med spa procedure for people that constantly suffer from red spots on their skin. It provides immense confidence to these people to go out in the public without having to worry about their permanently flushed face. The best part about the treatment is that it is simple yet effective. The fact that there is almost no downtime involved is causing more and more people to embrace the therapy. IPL Photofacial treatments are increasing in popularity as a way of addressing flushing, facial redness, and other skin issues. Another benefit of the treatment option is that there is no discomfort.
