What is diffused facial redness?

Monday, April 23, 2018 - 8:43am

Facial redness can occur due to small, discrete, red blood vessels called Telangiectasia, these are more commonly referred to as broken capillaries. Diffuse redness most commonly affects the nose, forehead, and cheeks. Common causes include genetics, aging, hormonal changes, ultraviolet exposure, extreme climate changes or lifestyle factors. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea, diagnosis is typically between 35 and 55 years of age. Whilst there is no cure for Rosacea there are effective treatment options to control the condition. Treatment of Rosacea focuses on reducing inflammation, controlling excessive sebum production and acne, avoiding trigger factors and treating the blood vessel proliferation. Advice and education on the best topical skincare program for a particular skin type is essential and it’s important to have realistic expectations when managing this chronic skin condition.
