Redness

Redness is a condition everyone will face at some point in their lives—for many, redness is acute and will fade on its own, but for others, redness is a lifelong discomfort. Fortunately, SkinPerfected can help you combat chronic redness at its root. 

Symptoms

  • Sensitivity to skincare and environments
  • Visible blood vessels 
  • Itching or burning sensations accompanying redness
  • Dry, rough, or irritated skin texture
  • Swelling or inflammation in the affected area
  • Discomfort or pain associated with redness

Causes

Redness of the skin, medically known as erythema, can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Inflammatory responses triggered by infection, injury, allergic reactions, or autoimmune conditions. 
  • Exposure to harsh skincare products, chemicals, detergents, or environmental pollutants. 
  • Allergic reactions to allergens such as certain foods, medications, insect bites, or environmental triggers. 
  • Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can lead to redness, pain, swelling, and sometimes blistering of the skin. 
  • Medical skin conditions, such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, acne, and contact dermatitis.
  • Conditions that affect blood vessels, such as telangiectasia, spider veins, or vasculitis.

Treatments

Treatments for redness of the skin encompass a variety of approaches tailored to address the underlying cause and severity of the condition. In many cases, medical-grade skincare can be utilized to reduce and prevent redness. Sun protection is paramount, particularly for conditions like rosacea and sunburn, where UV exposure can exacerbate redness. 

For more persistent or severe cases, laser therapy treatments– like BBL Hero– offer targeted treatment to diminish visible blood vessels, helping to reduce redness and promote a more even complexion. Microneedling and alternative cosmetic treatments have been found to greatly improve redness and associated concerns.
