Facial Redness / Rosacea


Facial redness can be due to a number of factors. In many cases, visible blood vessels close to the surface of the skin are the cause. This often happens as the skin becomes thinner, or prolonged inflammation weakens the wall of the blood vessel, and it bursts. A new vein will then form close to the surface, which may be thin and strand-like in appearance (known as a spider vein), and red / purple in colour. When thinning skin is a consideration for facial redness, the ageing process is one of the most common causes as collagen is lost and the internal structure becomes less supported.

Facial redness can give the overall appearance a ‘flushed’ look, and the complexion may also feel sensitive or can be warm to the touch. As well as being potentially uncomfortable, facial redness can also be accompanied by itching, burning and small, pus-filled spots (pustules). These symptoms are also characteristic of a condition known as rosacea; a long-term concern that has no obvious cause, with flare-ups seeming to have a certain ‘trigger’ (stress, alcohol, sun exposure, hot drinks, exercise or spicy food). Although there is no known cure for rosacea, experts would recommend avoiding your known trigger to ease the symptoms or reduce the likelihood of a flare-up.
