Redness of the face is caused by the growth of many small blood vessels in the face. This can be caused by either sun damage or by a condition called rosacea, which causes flushing, blushing, dilated blood vessels, and pimples.

Rosacea also is usually accompanied by very sensitive skin, not only to fragrance and irritants but also to heat, sun, and alcoholic beverages, causing flushing episodes accompanied by burning, stinging, and itching.

Fortunately, many lasers and light sources are available to treat redness.  Vascular lasers, referring to lasers that are effective for treating blood vessels, are used. At Advanced Dermatology we have 3 different lasers that can achieve this.
