Diffuse Redness
What is Diffuse Redness?

Redness most commonly affects the cheeks, forehead and nose and presents itself as a general redness to the face, these are made up of tiny broken capillaries under the skin.

Redness is often hereditary. It is more common in people with light and/or sensitive skin. It can also be related to Rosacea or Couperose. These are skin conditions that are associated with broken red vessels and/or inflammations in the face. You may also associate the redness to be triggered by certain environmental factors, ie Sun exposure, Alcohol consumption, eating spicy foods, Flushing when embarrassed.

Diffuse Redness

How It Works

The Nd:YAG wavelength is highly absorbed into haemoglobin (blood) and water, so we utilise the absorption into the blood by gently heating the area in layers, what happens when we heat the area is that the tiny capillaries coagulate, which in turn causes the capillaries to close. The body then recognises this as a foreign body and removes it. Consequently, diminishes the visual impact of redness.
