Skin redness and rosacea can often be sudden and alarming. Appearing in mid-life, this issue is characterized by the appearance of facial redness and itchy skin bumps. If left untreated, further progression resulting in the appearance of inflamed papules and pustules on the cheeks and nose as well as dilated blood vessels and redness can occur. If you are struggling with facial redness or rosacea, our team at Marlowe MD can help.
What Causes Facial Redness?
More often than not, facial redness develops when a person’s immune system is altered in some way. The main issue responsible for the appearance of the characteristic redness and skin bumps is a peptide-protein called cathelicidin. When a lot of this peptide is produced, the skin becomes inflamed and begins to develop enlarged vessels along with irritation. This immune response may be triggered by genetic factors, environmental factors, or a combination of both. Rosacea is a multi-factored condition and is therefore difficult to adequately diagnose.
What Are the Signs?
Typical signs of rosacea are facial redness, red bumps that sometimes contain pus, and skin irritation. Dilated blood vessels can result in persistent redness. If these signs match what you’re going through, you’ll be happy to know that treatments are available. At Marlowe MD, we offer IPL photofacial treatments for blood vessels and redness.
