Treating Facial Redness: IPL PhotoFacial vs. Pulsed Dye Laser

You may experience facial redness for a range of reasons, but it can be a frustrating, hard-to-hide problem. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer the most effective treatment options for fading redness, combining the benefits of two advanced light-based treatments called an IPL PhotoFacial and a Pulsed Dye Laser

What Causes Facial Redness?

You may have facial redness for several reasons. Your skin may be reacting to environmental exposure or an irritant, or you may have a medical condition. One of the most common causes is rosacea, a condition that most often affects women and can cause significant redness and acne-like bumps. Spider veins, which are small, damaged facial veins, are another common factor. Redness appears when red pigments become visible, either inside veins under the skin or in the skin itself.

Treating Facial Redness: IPL PhotoFacial vs. Pulsed Dye Laser

Light-based treatments are an effective way to treat many types of facial redness. These non-invasive treatments can dramatically improve your skin. They work by targeting red pigments, breaking them up and causing them to fade. Which one works best for you depends on many factors, but you will often see maximum benefits by combining them. 

IPL PhotoFacial

An IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) PhotoFacial uses pulses of light at many different wavelengths. This light energy is absorbed by red and brown pigment particles, causing them to heat up and breaking them into smaller pieces that can be removed by the body. 

Pulsed Dye Laser

A Pulsed Dye Laser uses a more targeted wavelength of light than IPL, making it a better choice for some people. However, research has shown that an IPL PhotoFacial and a Pulsed Dye Laser are equally effective for treating facial redness. 

DyeVL PhotoFacial

The advanced  DYEVL PhotoFacial combines the benefits of these two treatments for even better results. This effective skin resurfacing treatment eliminates redness and hyperpigmentation while firming and brightening the skin for a healthy glow.
