Treatment Highlights

  • Redness or reddening of the skin can be caused by many factors and your practitioner will be able to make a full assessment of the cause, and possible intervention required

Common Redness Conditions

Just like dry and oily skin types, there is also a sensitive skin type. This type appears to be easily irritated by a range of factors that are normally tolerated by well-balanced skin. These factors can range from emotional to environmental factors e.g. stress and weather change.

It is caused by the irritation of nerve ending in the top/outer layer of the skin. This is due to the weakened protective barrier of the skin.

Symptoms often begin with episodes of flushing, where the skin turns red for a short period, but other symptoms can develop as the condition progresses, such as:

  • burning and stinging sensations
  • permanent redness
  • spots (papules and pustules)
  • small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible

Rosacea is a relapsing condition, which means there are periods when symptoms are particularly bad, but less severe at others.

This is also known as spider veins. They are commonly found on the face and legs (but also appear on other parts of the body). They tend to develop at any stage in an individual’s life time and can originate from many factors i.e. hormonal changes or the sun. 

Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. It is a long-term (chronic) condition in most people, although it can improve over time, especially in children.

Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales.

These patches normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body. Most people are only affected with small patches. In some cases, the patches can be itchy or sore.

Psoriasis affects around 2% of people in the UK. It can start at any age but most often develops in adults under 35 years old, and affects men and women equally.

The severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person. For some it’s just a minor irritation but, for others, it can majorly affect their quality of life.

Psoriasis is a long-lasting (chronic) disease that usually involves periods when you have no symptoms or mild symptoms, followed by periods when symptoms are more severe.

About Microneedling

This involves the pricking of the surface of the skin multiple times with small needles to cause micro-injuries that the body recognises as a minor injury and results in regenerated and renewed skin and improved skin turnover. Our clinic uses a needling pen device as they are designed to adjust to different depths during various treatments. 

Mesotherapy as a term describes the process of needling in conjunction with the delivery of active ingredients to the skin. These include vitamins and minerals to increase hydration, pigmentation reduction or inhibition products, and products that reduce inflammation or oil production.

About Peels

A chemical peel is a treatment designed to refine and improve a range of skin conditions. A chemical solution is applied to outer layers of the skin with the aim of either removing damaged outer layers, or stimulating their turnover.

The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled or pigmented as a result. Peels can be combined with other treatments such as medical needling, home care and laser for greater effect. Peels are most commonly applied to the face, neck/décolletage, back or hands
