Facial redness is common and very annoying. Redness can be mild or severe and be diagnosed as Rosacea.
Redness is best treated with a series of PhotoFacials, followed by regular chemical peels. Photofacials work to shut down the tiny blood vessels that make up redness. Salicylic acid is related to aspirin and acts an anti-inflammatory.
Patients with redness should also add anti-redness skin care products to their regimen.
The use of sunblock that contains zinc and NOT chemical sunscreens is very important. Zinc will calm your skin, while chemical sunblocks cause heat and more redness.
