Facial redness can have many causes, including outbreaks of acne
, hormonal fluctuations, aging, medication side effects, and diffuse redness – a condition caused by dilated capillaries which results in a general redness of the skin. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead, and cheeks.
At the UPMC Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Health Center, the Genesis laser
is used to treat and reduce the appearance of facial redness.
