How to get rid of facial redness
Our tips for getting rid of redness on the face, and what you can do to prevent it.
For anyone with sensitive, redness-prone skin, dealing with the symptoms can be a struggle.
Everyone’s skin is different, and facial redness can be caused by a variety of factors, but if this is a skin concern you have there are ways to treat it effectively.
From targeted treatments to adjustments in your skincare routine, here’s what you can do to get rid of facial redness.
Be kind to skin
Your first step for skin that’s prone to redness or rosacea is to tread gently when it comes your daily skincare routine. Stick to soothing, non-irritating products that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
Typically, this means avoiding foaming cleansers and fragrances (synthetic or natural). It’s also best to steer clear of exfoliating scrubs or acid products, as this could further irritate your sensitive skin.
Treat the problem at its source
While the right skincare can help alleviate the symptoms of redness, for more effective results it’s best to go directly to the source.
There are a few treatments that can help correct facial redness. A microcurrent facial, which uses infusion therapy to deliver skin-nourishing ingredients deeper into the skin, can help strengthen surface capillaries and increase cell turnover to reduce redness and improve hydration, tone and texture.
For areas of advanced redness, you may also want to consider IPL laser treatments. These treatments work by pulsing laser light through the skin surface, targeting the underlying tissues and reducing redness at a deeper level. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the formation of new cells and stimulates collagen production, giving you clearer, smoother skin.
For more information about these treatments and advice about your individual skin concerns, we’d highly recommend popping into any of our clinics for a free consultation. Our friendly Skin Experts will talk you through your treatment options and answer any questions you may have.
