There are many causes of facial redness, rosacea and visible veins. They can be hereditary or be triggered by environmental conditions, certain foods, exercise, medication and harsh cosmetics to name a few.
Rosacea often occurs after the age of 30 and is characterised by redness predominately in the middle of the face, over the cheeks and on the nose. It can present as small visible veins, raised red lumps similar looking to acne, roughness with a burning or stinging sensation and thickened looking skin with enlarged pores.
Good skincare, removing triggers and wearing a mineral sunscreen everyday can help reduce symptoms, however when your symptoms are out of control we have a several treatments that can help calm irritation, reduce constant redness and diminish visible facial veins.

Visible red light (in the range of 630 nm to 700nm) can penetrate your skin to a depth of approximately 8 to 10mm. In this range of light, your skins cells absorb the light which energisers the cells and increases blood circulation.
This Increased blood circulation brings more nutrients and oxygen to the area helping to reduce inflammation, swelling, redness and can improve healing by upto 200%.
A course of treatments is required. To achieve optimal results 2 treatments a week for 4-6 weeks are often need to reduce the initial inflammation. A maintenance session is sometimes needed, however this varies from person to person.

IPL treats facial redness by using light and heat energy. The light and heat cauterises the veins that contribute to the appearance of rosacea. Over a period of 3-4 weeks, the veins are resorbed, leading to a reduction in facial redness and visible veins.
Facial redness can be treated through a course of treatments, for diffuse redness and rosacea a course of approximately 6 treatments is recommended. For facial veins these can be treated in approximately 2-3 sessions.
All IPL Rejuvenation treatments are performed at the Skin Laser Clinic. For Pricing visit www.skinlaserclinic.co.nz

Microneedling has been around for decades, however it has gained in popularity recently with huge advancements in technology especially in the delivery modality. It is now a much gentler, (virtually painless for a lot of people) more versatile and delivers fantastic results.
Dermapen’s goal is to give everyone a chance to look healthier and feel better as we age. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a safe and chemical-free method to stimulate new collagen production. The increase in collagen and elastin fibres results in thicker and plumper skin which can make the redness less visible.
