Skin & Facial Redness

Increased skin & facial redness can be a significant cosmetic concern for many people. The unwanted redness is the result of increased numbers of blood vessels in the superficial layers of the skin. The redness can range from a generalised pinkness or redness because of increased blood flow into tiny microscopic blood vessels, to discrete prominent blood vessels that can appear as red lines on the surface of the skin.

How it works

We use specialised Vascular lasers such as the EXCEL V, VARILITE and V-BEAM and light sources such as the BBL to treat unwanted facial redness. The common vascular conditions that we treat are Rosacea, Broken capillaries, Spider veins, Spider angioma, General redness, and Birthmarks.


Reducing redness improves skin complexion and helps with any flushing or burning sensation. Removing prominent blood vessels means it doesn’t look like you have had too much sun or been drinking heavily. Treating Rosacea helps improve your skin health and control the condition.



Avoid excess sun exposure before treatment. On the day of treatment we recommend deferring treatment if the temperature is over 34 degrees and you need to be outside (this is to reduce the chance of excess swelling and reaction).


Immediately after treatment a cold pack is applied and then a soothing cream. If you are going outside a sunscreen is highly recommended. Normal activities can be resumed but you need to treat the area like an area of sunburn and avoid direct sun exposure whilst any skin reaction is settling. Make up can be used but needs to be put on and taken off gently (pad rather than rub). Avoid a strenuous gym session for the next couple of days.

Sleeping with an extra pillow on the night after treatment can be of benefit to reduce swelling especially if there has been any treatment under the eye area. If any small crusts (like a cat scratches) develop it is important not to pick or scratch these. Moisturiser, Aloe Vera or Vitamin E can be used twice a day for a few days whilst the skin settles.
