Facial Redness/capillary vessels

Does the redness on your face bother you? Does your face often turn red no matter if you feel cold or hot? And it lasts for a long time? Perhaps a green primer or concealer can hide it away temporarily, but getting anesthetic treatments can help improve it from the root cause!

What is face redness

Facial skin with a serious redness condition may develop visible capillary vessels (telangiectasias).

Facial skin redness is also known as telangiectasias in dermatology. When our skin is irritated, it causes capillary vessels to expand and eventually to show through the skin. Temporary enlarged vessels will appear as facial redness (blushing) for a short period of time, however, frequent blushing will develop local facial redness (erythema).

People with obvious capillary vessels on their face generally have thinner stratum corneum on their facial skin and have their capillaries distributed closer to the skin surface. Therefore, their skin is more sensitive and easier to cause redness, itchy and swelling when exposed to irritants. Visible capillary vessel is one of the signs of sensitive skin.

Causes

The skin redness and visible capillary vessels are mainly caused by a thin stratum corneum. The thin stratum corneum provides less protection than a normal thickness one, causing the capillaries to be located closer to the skin surface and hence more exposed to external change. Capillaries will expand when contacting irritants and cause different skin conditions.

1. Inborn factor

Some people were born with skin that is prone to show redness. Some people have thinner stratum corneum that make their skins to be more sensitive to irritants and causing skin redness.

2. Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin usually has thinner stratum corneum. This skin type is more sensitive than others when they are exposed to irritants such as sunlight, medicine, makeup products and change of temperature. The irritation reaction will cause small blood vessels to dilate. Repeated dilation of small blood vessels will make them visible and permanent.

3. Prolonged sun exposure

Sun exposure and hot and dry weather in summer can irritate our skin and cause redness on the face. Also, frequent entering an air-conditioned room straight after a sunbath will cause the skin unstable and appear red.

4. Weak or damaged skin barrier

Some poor skincare routines can damage and weaken our natural skin barrier and hence cause skin redness, for example, over-exfoliation, using soap based or strong base cleanser, washing face with too cold or too hot water, washing face with hot water and cold water alternatively, and rubbing face roughly.

5. Unhealthy diet

Alcohol, coffee and spicy food can cause dilation of small blood vessels and skin redness, and increase the risk of developing visible capillaries.

Symptoms

People who have visible capillaries on their face generally have a more red skin tone than people who haven’t, which indicates that their face is continuously under a redness condition. The redness on the face usually appears at the cheeks and nose wings, with rounded edges and in symmetry. Skin with these symptoms has thin stratum corneum and is sensitive. Emotional swing, low temperature or high temperature can trigger an even more red skin tone. People with severe facial redness are prone to hyperpigmentation.

The redness on the face will give a dull and rough skin texture.  The skin’s low tolerance towards irritants makes the skin fragile and sensitive, when it is exposed to irritants, it easily displays itchy, redness or other skin reactions. These reactions also take a long time to heal.

Affect groups

Sensitive skin, light-coloured skin with thin stratum corneum, skin with existing skin problems, skin with inflammatory condition, or skin often showing redness.

Treatment

If you are looking to improve your skin redness and capillary vessels appearance, M22 IPL treatment is one of the most effective treatments to restore your skin. However, if you desire a more comprehensive, all-rounded treatment to tackle the redness and small blood vessels from the root cause, you are recommended to come to Ai Beauty Clinic to receive professional consultation and skin analysis. Based on the evaluation and data analysis of your skin condition, a treatment plan will be customised to help fulfill your desire.

A. M22 IPL treatment

What is M22:

M22 is an innovative photoelectric skin revitalisation instrument jointly developed by Lumenis, Stanford University and Harvard University. It innovatively combines the world leading technologies (OPT technology and fractional non-ablative technology – RESURFX) to effectively treat pigmented lesions, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, swelling lines, skin reconstruction (including reducing pores size, hair removal, skin rejuvenation, skin whitening, moisturizing, etc.), facial lifting, and wrinkle removal. M22 has obtained the US FDA and the EU CE certification and is the cutting-edge technology that delivers top skin rejuvenation treatment.

How does M22 work:

M22 IPL treatment adopts the core OPT technology and the only true fractional non-ablative technology, RESURFX. The emitted intense pulsed light penetrates the deep layers of the skin and reaches the melanin pigment and capillary vessels selectively. By absorbing the light energy, the melanin pigment will be decomposed while the capillary vessels will be closed and destructed without damaging the skin surface. The capillary vessels will thereafter disintegrate, and the facial redness will be improved. On the other hand, M22 can stimulate the regrowth of collagen to restore skin’s elasticity, remove fine lines, reduce pores size and smoothen the skin texture.

Procedure:

1. VISIA examination: Access skin condition or existing skin problems with assistance of data analysis and picture analysis.

2. Face-to-face consultation: Customise unique treatment plan based on individual’s skin condition and desired results.

3. Pre-treatment preparation: Clean and disinfect the treatment areas. Put on safety goggles and apply treatment gel.

4. Treatment: Full face treatment, repeat steps at servere areas.

5. Post-treatment: Remove the gel, clean the face and apply a medical grade repair mask to calm the face.

6. Post-treatment caring.

Duration: 45-60 mins

B. Mesotherapy

What is Mesotherapy:

Our skin is facing all kinds of damages everyday, like photodamage, pollution and the natural aging process. Mesotherapy can be a regular skin rejuvenation treatment that helps maintain our skin in a good condition in the long run. It is a non-surgical treatment that injects solution with various vital nutrients to our skin directly, which has a significantly higher absorption of nutrients than using skincare products. According to the skin condition, the injection content can also be tailored to meet one’s need for the maximum desired outcome.

How does it work:

Mesotherapy involves the injection of hyaluronic acid or/and multiple nutrients to the dermis. Dermis cells absorb the nutrients via osmotic absorption, which will activate cellular activity, promote the proliferation of collagen and elastic fibroblasts, resulting in smoothing depressed scars, improving pigmentation, deep hydrating and smoothing wrinkles. Leaving you a thoroughly improved skin texture, healthier skin condition and a perfect silky skin.

C. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) 

What is PRP:

A Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, also known as the “Vampire face-lift”, is an advanced treatment for skin rejuvenation purpose. The treatment involves the extraction of the platelets and white blood cells from the client’s blood via centrifugation. The resulting extract containing a high concentration of growth factors will be injected into the client’s skin. PRP treatment is a safe skin rejuvenation treatment that has obtained European CE,  ISO and SQS certifications, and has been clinically proven by extensive research worldwide.

How does it work:

During the PRP treatment, blood will be drawn from the client’s vein and undergo centrifugation to separate the blood components. The layer containing high concentration of platelets and white blood cells will be collected as it is rich in growth factors. The collected solution will then be injected into the client’s superficial dermis. The growth factors stimulate the regeneration and renewal of tissue, healing the damaged and aged cells, which will improve the skin texture, firm and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and depressed scars, restore a youthful skin condition and slow down the aging process. Receiving regular PRP treatment can strengthen the skin defence system and heal the barrier ability in the dermis, restoring a healthier, youthful and stronger skin.
