Facial Redness Treatment
Facial Redness NYC Treatment Center
Facial redness, also called facial flushing is caused by a dilation of blood vessels on facial skin.
Even though rosacea is a common reason for redness, it is not the only one. Different factors like an inherently ruddy complexion, sunburn, and an allergic reaction to certain foods and food additives can result in facial redness. Several skin care lines, topical prescriptions and skin care procedures like intense pulsed light or IPL laser treatments are effective in treating facial redness.
Rosacea: Broken veins or capillaries on the skin surface or just below can cause embarrassment and require camouflage makeup. Our range of treatments can be used to break down the vessel walls and reduce the visible effect of the blemishes on the skin surface. The IPL treatment can be used on all areas of the body where broken vein, thread veins and capillary redness are visible and problematic.
Dr. Gary offers different options for the reduction of facial redness customized to the individual need of that particular patient. We need to know the source of the problem to know how to treat that particular condition. Knowing the root of the problem is more important than the technique. Everything else will fall in place when you listen to what the patient has to say and do a full examination of the problem.
Dr Gary sees every patient himself and believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.
Skin conditions treated include; Rosacea (generalised and localized), red nose, red cheeks, Keratosis pilaris rubra facia, Rhinophyma, large facial veins and large nose veins.
Does IPL hurt?
As the controlled intense pulsed light passes in to the skin the most regular description is on of feeling a very slight ping like a hot elastic band on the skin surface. The patch test will help you understand the treatment and feel your own sensation.
What are the Side Effects?
Side effects are rare.
Slight reddening and swelling of the treated area may occur after treatment but usually goes away within hours.
Blistering or bruising is very rare.
Hyper / hypo pigmentation. In rare occasions the skin around the treated area may become temporarily darker or lighter but is usually returns back to normal very quickly.
This is why it is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be honest about medical history.
Each patient’s condition is carefully evaluated and the best treatment(s) is chosen to ensure an optimal outcome. Treatments are performed by Dr. Gary who has extensive cosmetic dermatology training. This allows the Doctor to offer top-quality services in every area of the cosmetic dermatology field, while ensuring patients safety and satisfaction.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved Mirvaso (brimonidine) for the treatment of the redness -- clinically known as erythema -- that is a hallmark of rosacea. The gel is made by Galderma Laboratories, of Fort Worth, Texas, and was approved based on two month-long clinical trials involving more than 550 patients.
This is a turning point in rosacea treatment where we will be able to provide patients to deal with the daily anxiety caused by the redness of rosacea.
The new approval of Mirvaso is very interesting because for the first time, we have a topical gel to treat facial redness of rosacea, where in the past we only had a limitation of lasers.
Only time will tell. After a few years it is a possibility that the the lasers for redness will be extinct.
Mirvaso is thought to work by constricting otherwise dilated facial blood vessels, cutting down on the appearance of redness.
The gel is applied once a day to the forehead, chin, nose and cheeks according to Galderma Labs. The good news It will be available in pharmacies in September 2013.
It would be very interesting if Mirvaso would come out in a cream form also since a gel has a drying up effect and a cream has more of a moisturizing effect which would enhance the calming effect of the facial redness. Again only time will tell.
