Facial redness


Facial redness can be caused by many conditions, including sun damage, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis and acne. It can also be a manifestation of internal illnesses such as lupus and many others. In order to treat your facial redness, it’s important to examine the causes behind it. Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL), also known as yellow laser is a specialized laser that targets the blood vessels in the skin. The laser passes through the layers of skin and is absorbed as heat by the blood vessels. The heat breaks the blood vessels apart so they can be reabsorbed and cleared away leaving behind a natural skin tone.
