Chronic Red Skin Treatments

Here at Cheshire Lasers, we have a wide range of in-clinic and home care treatments for red skin.

Red skin is caused by a range of problems, and the treatment of choice depends on the cause.

Redness caused by vessels

Broken Blood Vessels, Thread Veins and Cherry Angioma respond to Laser, IPL, Electrolysis or Electrocautery.

Skin with an Impaired Skin Barrier

An impaired skin barrier can cause inflammation and redness. This can be caused by stress on the skin some as extreme heat or cold, or products applied to the skin, as well as skin conditions such as Dermatitis, Eczema, and Psoriasis. Sometimes the skin appears angry and inflamed; other times dry and flaky, but sometimes the barrier breakdown can be more subtle in appearance.

To improve redness in these situations, we need to repair the skin barrier first before addressing any remaining redness.
