Skin redness is a discolouration of the skin that can sometimes be accompanied by itching or irritation. Skin redness can often be associated with another condition such as rosacea or acne. It can also sometimes be a side effect of medication or an indication of another medical problem.
There are many causes of skin redness. Rosacea, contact dermatitis, acne, sunburn or psoriasis are all possible reasons why a person might be experiencing skin redness. The treatment prescribed will depend on the cause of your skin’s redness and we provide an initial consultation to determine the best course of action.
Skin peels can be used to treat redness caused by acne and other skin conditions. The chemicals used in a skin peel penetrate deep into the dermis of the skin to boost the growth of collagen and elastin. Skin peels are suitable for all skin types and the new skin that appears is smooth and refreshed.
Extra care should be taken in the sun after having a skin peel and an SPF of 25 or higher should be worn at all times.
The laser treatment utilises the revolutionary Cynosure laser. The exact number of treatments will be discussed at your initial consultation. Normally several treatments are recommended in order to see an improvement. After treatment, extra care should be taken in the sun and a minimum of SPF 30 being worn at all times.
