Facial redness and flushing can make anyone self-conscious and is difficult and time-consuming to cover with makeup.
Small blood vessels and capillaries that reside close to the surface of the skin are susceptible to dilation and breakage from continued sun and environmental damage. Skin disorders such as Rosacea also contribute to the appearance of redness, mainly in the central cheek and nose area. Professional skin treatments and ongoing sun protection can reduce the look of redness dramatically, and for progressive disorders like Rosacea, treatment can control the redness and breakouts associated with flare-ups.
At Halcyon Cosmetic we can help you select the products and treatments most effective for treating your redness and flushing concerns.
In most cases, redness and flushing are due to tiny, blood vessels residing very close to the surface of the skin. Flushing and worsening of redness over time occur when microvessels dilate because of genetics, sun and environmental skin damage, and some skin disorders such as Rosacea.
A Medical Facial utilizes professional-grade products customized by our skincare specialist to calm your irritated skin and minimize the appearance of redness. It can be done on its own or as part of a treatment plan to enhance and improve other treatments you might be receiving.
A REDNESS COMBO treatment is our most effective treatment for redness, flushing and Rosacea without significant downtime. Our Medical Facial is kicked up a few notches with the addition of dermaplaning to maximize the penetration of professional skincare products and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). We use a specific IPL filter to focus on and target dilated blood vessels and overall redness. Maximum results are achieved with a series of at least 3 treatments.
Dermaplaning is a thorough physical exfoliation of dead surface skin cells and vellus hair resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion. It is an ideal treatment prior to Laser Genesis as the removal of this buildup maximizes laser penetration.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. This photorejuvenation treatment can be customized by filtering the wavelengths of light to target your specific skin concerns. IPL is the “gold standard” for treating both redness and pigmented lesions with minimal to no downtime.
