A common condition that can be indicative of various skin disorders including acne, rosacea, red scars, spider veins, and cherry angiomas. Often caused by inflammation, allergies, irritation, or an underlying disease, it’s the skin’s response to injury, infection, or stimulation. The observed redness is due to the dilation of blood vessels beneath the skin’s surface.
Other than the discomfort and aesthetic concerns it can cause, some other reasons for treatment include:
VBEAM Perfecta® is a pulsed-dye laser system used for treating skin redness. It functions by emitting a concentrated beam of light that specifically targets the blood vessels causing the redness. As these vessels absorb the light energy, they heat up and disintegrate, thereby reducing the appearance of redness. This treatment is known for its minimal impact on the surrounding skin tissues.

Not necessarily. Various factors including temporary skin irritation, allergic reactions, sunburn, or exertion can contribute to facial redness. However, persistent facial redness might be a sign of a skin condition like rosacea or acne.
Facial redness can occur at any age and may be triggered by a range of factors such as skin type, environmental factors, lifestyle, or specific skin conditions like acne or rosacea. However, some conditions like rosacea commonly appear in adults over 30.
The number of treatments required can vary greatly depending on the individual and the cause of the redness. While some may see noticeable improvements after a single treatment, others may need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
