Redness & Vascularity

Address redness and vascular issues with tailored treatments for clearer, healthier skin through expert care.

Addressing Redness, Broken Capillaries, and Vascular Issues

Redness, broken capillaries, and vascular concerns can be challenging to manage, but understanding their causes is the first step toward effective treatment. At Medical Aesthetic, we provide expert care for both men and women to address these issues with a professional and personalised approach.

Understanding Inflammation

Inflammation is characterized by redness, irritation, sensitivity, swelling, and heat. When examining inflammation, three key factors must be considered:

1) Acid Mantle Health

The acid mantle is the skin’s protective barrier. If impaired, irritants can penetrate the skin too quickly, leading to overstimulation of deeper cells. This can cause increased redness and sensitivity.

2) Langerhans Cells Strength

Langerhans cells are crucial for the skin’s immune response. In healthy skin, they are numerous and have long dendritic arms that protect against bacteria, pathogens, and irritants. In inflamed skin, the immune function is often compromised, with fewer Langerhans cells and damaged dendritic arms, leading to excessive immune responses to minor threats.

3) Capillary Function

Overproduction and abnormal development of capillary networks can impair the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. This can slow down stem cell and melanocyte function, resulting in pigmentation issues and slow healing. Clients may notice persistent redness, broken capillaries, and slow recovery from breakouts.

Tailored Treatments for Inflammation

Clients may experience one or a combination of these issues. At Medical Aesthetic, we offer tailored treatments to address each specific concern:

Improving Acid Mantle Health

To restore the acid mantle, we recommend removing stripping ingredients from your skincare routine and replacing them with nourishing and conditioning ingredients. Supplementing your diet with essential fatty acids (EFAs) can also support acid mantle health.

Strengthening Langerhans Cell Function

Topical Vitamin B3 is excellent for supporting Langerhans cells. It acts as a tonic, helping these cells become stronger and re-lengthen their dendritic arms, enhancing the skin’s immune response.

Enhancing Capillary Health

Topical Vitamin C can help build strong and healthy capillary networks. Additionally, skin needling can break down excess capillary networks and regulate the regrowth of new, healthy structures. Two key growth factors, VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) and others, play a role in the correct angiogenesis process, ensuring proper capillary formation.

Rosacea: Grade 1 and 2

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that primarily affects the facial skin, presenting with symptoms that range from mild to severe across various grades. Grade 1 rosacea, often referred to as mild rosacea, is characterized by intermittent facial redness and flushing. This stage may also include subtle swelling and the appearance of fine, visible blood vessels.

Grade 2 rosacea is more advanced and includes persistent redness and pronounced blood vessels. Individuals with this grade often experience inflammatory outbreaks that resemble acne, involving papules and pustules. This stage can also lead to increased skin sensitivity and occasional itching or burning sensations.

At Medical Aesthetic, we provide effective treatment options for managing Grade 1 and Grade 2 rosacea. Our approach combines specialized skincare products and advanced devices designed to reduce inflammation and visible symptoms, improving the overall appearance and health of the skin. Treatments such as gentle lasers and light therapy are tailored to address and soothe the specific symptoms associated with these grades.

When rosacea progresses beyond these stages, or if symptoms significantly impact quality of life, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist. Prescription medications and professional medical advice become necessary for managing more severe forms of rosacea, such as Grade 3, which involves thickening of the skin, or Grade 4, affecting the eyes. Referring to a dermatologist ensures our patients receive comprehensive care tailored to the severity of your condition, including advanced medical treatments beyond the scope of aesthetic procedures if and when required.
