Rosacea / Redness / Red Spots / Blood Vessels

Redness, red spots, and blood vessels give the skin an uneven, flushed, and discolored appearance. 

Rosacea is one of the most common skin conditions, with approximately 16 million Americans currently suffering from its effects. Rosacea is a disease that causes the facial skin to appear red, blotchy, bumpy, and irritated. Despite being a common skin condition, chronic rosacea can have a profound impact on personal appearance and self-esteem. A recent survey by the National Rosacea Society found that 90 percent of rosacea patients said their rosacea lowered their self-confidence and negatively affected their social and professional interactions.

Red spots can arise from leaked capillaries and may sometimes appear in clusters like a rash. Blood vessels and spider veins (small, purplish, web-like veins) that have expanded or burst due to excess pressure may become raised and visible through the skin.

Recommended Treatment:

Dr. Bitter recommends the FotoFacial® for treating each of these conditions. While rosacea has no cure, broadband light therapy with the FotoFacial® procedure can minimize and control its appearance. This innovative light-based treatment can dramatically improve skin tone and minimize flushing, broken capillaries, blood vessels, and overall redness in the face. With this treatment, patients can have a more even, refreshed, and healthy-looking complexion.
