Redness & Rosacea

It’s really common to get areas on the face with small thread veins that can look unsightly and make you self conscious. IPL is a fantastic treatment for this.

Often redness in the face can be a sign of a skin condition called rosacea. This common skin condition most often appears between the ages of 30 and 60 and is usually visible on the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. 

People with rosacea often find they suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed. Red veins and red flushing can be a cause of real concern and distress.

Absolutely superb clinic. Can't recommend James, Keli and their team enough. The team at Freyja truly care about their clients and getting the right results. I've had consultations for both dermatology and aesthetics everyone I've seen has shown true compassion and I've never felt under any pressure to get treatments done and all consultations have been incredibly detailed. Thanks to Freyja not only has my skin improved but my mental health and confidence have improved too. I'm no longer embarrassed about my skin and admitting that I have Roseaca, as thanks to James and Keli I now have the right diagnosis and understand my condition. I'm now following a course of IPL and Hydrafacials with Sigita and Hattie who are both outstanding at what they do, these ladies are so knowledgeable and thorough and always make sure I'm comfortable throughout treatments. The Nantwich clinic is in a beautiful location with plenty of parking, everything in both clinics is ultra modern and clean. If there was an award for best clinic in the universe Freyja would win it hands down.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please reach us at [email protected] if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Why do I get this unwanted hair growing?

To understand how to get rid of hair, it is important to understand how hair grows. 

Hair growth is cyclical and begins with the growth cycle known as anagen. Anagen may last for two to seven years (the duration of this cycle determines the maximum hair length). The following anagen is catagen, a transition cycle that lasts for about 10 to 14 days. Telogen (the resting phase) follows catagen and lasts from two to four months. 

The most common areas for hair reduction in women are the upper lip, chin, cheeks, legs, armpits, and bikini area. Many factors, including genetics and hormones, control hair density in these areas. Some ethnic groups have increased hair density above the lip. Diseases such as polycystic ovary disease and certain medications may also stimulate excessive hair growth. 

How does IPL get rid of unwanted hair?

IPL is a safe & effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. 

The principle underlying IPL hair removal is known as selective thermolysis and it refers to light energy that can target one colour or tissue without affecting another. 

When applied to hair reduction, IPL targets pigment at the base of the follicle to destroy the matrix stem cells. Most hair removal IPL&laser systems work well when used on light skin and dark hair. This combination allows energy from the laser to pass through the skin and get absorbed by the dark hair. 

When used on dark skin, the energy gets absorbed by the skin and may cause loss of pigment or scarring without affecting the hairs. 

Can IPL be used on any skin type?

 IPL is best & safest when used on the lighter sin types (Types 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale):

Type 1: always burns, never tans (pale, freckles).
Type 2: usually burns, minimal tanning.
Type 3: sometimes burns mildly, tans uniformly.
Type 4: burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown).
Type 5: very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown).
Type 6: Never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown).

Does IPL help rosacea?

People with Rosacea have many facial thread veins which dilate in response to certain triggers (see above) and stay open for longer periods of time compared to non-Rosacea sufferers. These thread veins have weaker walls and therefore do not function properly.

Intense Pulsed Light treatment has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of Rosacea. It works by a process called photothermolysis. This light therapy selectively destroys the abnormal vessels (thread veins) that cause the Rosacea effect, allowing thicker walled micro vessels to be laid down.

What causes facial thread veins and redness?

Spider veins and thread veins are commonly found on the face and can develop in anyone at any age.

What are facial thread veins?
Facial thread veins are tiny blood vessels that run close to the skin surface. They appear when blood vessels become enlarged which cause the veins to appear broken. The proper medical term for them is telangiectasia.

What are the causes of facial thread veins?
There are lots of causes of facial thread veins including exposure to the sun, changes in weather, excess alcohol consumption, hormone changes, or they can simply be as a result of your genes. People with rosacea often suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed.
