What is a Facial Redness Treatment?

Redness on the face, caused by hyperpigmentation or inflammation, is often concentrated across the cheeks and nose. DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA offers our state-of-the-art GentleMaxPro laser as a solution to treat the skin, lightening it and minimizing signs of redness and irritation. This condition can happen to almost anyone, but middle-aged to elderly women with fairer complexions may be more prone to experience chronic redness and irritation. Our team of aesthetic providers will assess your skin for symptoms and create a customized treatment plan using the laser to help minimize symptoms and keep them under control.

Am I a candidate?

You might want to consider treatment for facial redness if you have a spectrum of mild to severe symptoms, which could range from medical issues such as rosacea to more cosmetic concerns. The most standard symptom for individuals pursuing treatment is redness of the face that does not fluctuate or settle in short periods of time. In the majority of cases, the central part of the face, or the t-zone, is the most noticeably red. In this scenario, small blood vessels in the nose, cheeks, and chin can often swell and become visible. You may also notice some swelling and heat around the affected areas. In most cases of facial redness, there are no alarming medical issues to address, but patients still desire a more even, youthful appearance by reducing redness and hyperpigmentation.

How is this treatment performed?

Here at DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we now offer treatment for facial redness, whether for cosmetic or medical purposes (or some combination of both), utilizing our state-of-the-art GentleMaxPro laser. This laser is known for its ability to resurface the skin and even out areas of deep pigmentation, along with treating sun spots and age spots. While some facial redness concerns might be met by antibiotics or surgery, when medical concerns get raised, laser treatment for redness is an excellent option for those patients who have more cosmetic or preventive concerns. This procedure often helps to minimize the look of irritated blood vessels and remove excessive tissue buildup around the nose and t-zone areas where redness often occurs.

What can I expect after treatment?

Although it may seem counterintuitive, after laser treatment you can expect an increase in redness and swelling. This is not ideal; however, you will notice a reduction after 2 – 3 days to a much more even, calm skin tone than prior to treatment. In order to alleviate some of the initial irritation the procedure may cause, you will want to avoid hot and steamy areas such as hot tubs, sun exposure, or exfoliation that may irritate the new skin cells. In addition, do your best to avoid wearing makeup or aggressive skin care regimens that will contribute to your skin's irritation. We recommend wearing ample amounts of sunscreen on the affected areas for the weeks following treatment in order to best protect your skin and guarantee optimal results.
