Treating facial redness with laser


First steps....

The first thing to consider is: why is my face red?  In your consultation, we shall explore your history and examine your skin to give an understanding of why your face has become red.  For example, you may have a skin condition known as rosacea, or other medical causes of facial redness.  Further,  the role that sun damage has played in your skin changes will also be adressed. 


Once your dermatologist has made a diagnosis, the treatment optiosn will be explained to you.  Many causes of facial redness are treated with laser or light, but others are not and the most appropriate treatment for your condition will be discussed.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions. 

Red facial conditions that we treat with lasers:

  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Haemangioma
  • Port wine stains
  • Sun damage
  • Thread veins
  • Venous lake


There are several laser and light based techniques to treat the red face: the laser or light we choose will be discussed with you as each has it's own particularly benefits and effectiveness.  Typically we would use: 

  • Pulsed dye lasers
  • Nd:YAG 1064 lasers
  • Multiplex Pulsed dye/Nd:YAG
  • Intense pulsed light

After treatment for facial redness, it is common to have a bruised apprearance for a few days after treatment.  This usually settles very rapidly.  See the patient information section for aftercare advice .
