Facial redness correction with Dr. Margaret Summerville
There are many reasons why a patient might be dealing with facial redness. This may include sun damaged skin, hormonal changes, rosacea, or contact dermatitis. Regardless, patients who are unable to reduce redness on their own with cosmetics or topical products available over-the-counter might consider reaching out to a dermatologist. A dermatologist is a medical professional with a focus on the skin, hair, and nails. Dr. Margaret Summerville of Chevy Chase Dermatology sees patients regularly who are interested in combating facial redness once and for all!
What can be done about facial redness?
When patients schedule an appointment at the practice of Dr. Margaret Summerville, they will need to have a proper diagnosis of their condition before selecting a treatment option most appropriate for their needs. Once patients know the reason behind their facial redness, they can then find a suitable treatment. The two common approaches to facial redness include:
- Prescription medications – patients who have a medical reason for facial redness, such as an individual who has been diagnosed with rosacea, will often benefit from prescription medications. This may include oral or topical products that reduce redness and inflammation of the skin.
- Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) – with intense pulsed light therapy, facial redness can be improved dramatically with routine treatment sessions. This is more of a cosmetic approach to treating the problem. It can be used in conjunction with prescription medications if the dermatologist deems this necessary.
