What has helped mine has been LED, retinol, and anti-redness serums. Also, go easy on the scrubbing and peeling. It's not always inflammation, nor is it always from damage to the skin. It can be hereditary and blood pressure related as well.
I bought a machine, Skin Classic( lamprobe) for skin irregularities such as Telangectasia discussed.
I have a Skin Classic and absolutely love it. Be careful with your state regulations (of course). It has been a wonderful add-on service for many of my clients.
Vitamin C serum works very well on this especially the high strengths like 20% or 15 and above. IPL is about the best treatment for this and might take a few treatments. I find Vitamin C very effective for my clients.
All very good information and I couldn't agree more. Individual treatment for the client is very important depending on the condition.
Along with soothing inflammation and hydrating dehydrated skin, you will want to strengthen the capillaries. Ingredients such as Vitamin K and raspberry are very good for this!
Yes, the LED therapy works wonders. I use this treatment not only for my clients, but for me also. Depending on the treatment frequency and the quality of light machine you can see results after 2-3 sessions (some even after the first treatment), and at 15 treatments made in rhythm of 2/ week they should be gone. If there is not follow up for maintenance they will come back in 2-3 years. Keep the light as close to the skin as possible without touching it (1/2'')
What color are you using?
Nicola, I have found working with products that actually strengthen the skin surrounding the areas of concern really helps diminish the appearance of the redness. I like Redness Relief from MEG21; it has a great silky texture and absorbs easily, especially around the nose where I tend to get oily.
