Diffused Redness

WHAT IS DIFFUSED REDNESS?

Diffused redness on skin is a condition that causes the skin to appear red or flushed due to increased blood flow in the superficial capillaries. It can be triggered by various factors, such as sun exposure, heat, stress, spicy foods, or certain medications. Diffused redness can also be a symptom of rosacea, a chronic skin disorder that affects the face. Diffused redness can be treated with laser therapies that target the dilated blood vessels.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Laser and IPL (intense pulsed light) are both non-invasive treatments that use light energy to target and reduce the appearance of diffused redness on the skin. Diffused redness is caused by dilated or broken blood vessels near the surface of the skin, which can result from sun damage, rosacea, acne, or other skin conditions. Laser and IPL work by emitting wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing them to heat up and collapse. This reduces the redness and improves the skin tone and texture. Laser and IPL treatments are usually performed in a series of sessions, depending on the severity of the condition and the desired results. The treatments are generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?

A laser or IPL treatment for diffused redness is

an aesthetic procedure that uses light energy to target and reduce the appearance of redness on the skin. The treatment is usually performed by a somatologist, and it can take from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The procedure is generally safe and well-tolerated, but some side effects may occur, such as:

– Mild discomfort or pain during the treatment

– Redness, swelling, bruising, or blistering of the treated area, which usually subside within a few days.

To prepare for the treatment, you should avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for at least two weeks before and after the session. You should also avoid using any products that may irritate your skin, such as alcohol, retinoids, or exfoliants. You should follow the aftercare instructions given by your provider, which may include applying sunscreen, moisturizer, and ice packs to the treated area. You may need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results, depending on your skin type and condition.

AFTER THE TREATMENT

After a laser or IPL treatment for diffused redness, you may experience some temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, itching, or mild discomfort in the treated area. These are normal reactions and usually subside within a few hours to a few days. You should avoid sun exposure, hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment. You should also apply a gentle moisturizer and sunscreen to the treated area.

HOW MANY SESSIONS

The results of the treatment may vary depending on your skin type, condition, and number of sessions. You may need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. You should consult with your doctor or dermatologist before and after the treatment to ensure safety and effectiveness.
