What Results In Redness?
Redness is commonly seen across our faces and sun exposed areas. Damaging UV light from the sun causes damage to our skin that warrants repair. Inevitably, there will be an increase in the amount of red blood vessels that supply nutrients to the damaged areas. Persistent damage results in further proliferation of the excess blood vessels. Other causes are that of acne and inflammation that contribute towards this pathway.
All of this leads to redness that we can identify with – acne, persistent reddened cheeks and reddened skin around the nose, and fine blood vessels that we see across our faces.
Common Redness Conditions
Common conditions that have excess redness underlying them:
- Fine Blood Capillaries (Telangiectasias)
- Melasma (Underlying Pool of Excess Blood Vessels Supply)
How Is The Procedure Like?
- No numbing cream is needed.
- R2 Laser commences, it will feel like a jet of cold air rushing against the skin across the region treated.
- Retreatment in around 1 month’s time.
R2 Laser is also used for brighten and achieving a glow to our skin on top of the ability to resolve conditions that have redness!
What Else Can I Do?
We cannot stress enough on the importance of adequate sun protection and sun avoidance. We recommend the RAI Post Laser Intensive Recovery Serum which calm down inflamed skin and augment recovery post laser treatment.
If you have any red spots on the face that you seek to treat, it is best to consult your doctor before selecting the appropriate treatment!
