Why Is My Face Red?

I was at a dinner party last week when I came upon a group of women who were avid tennis players. In this group of 5 ladies, 3 expressed concern about their red faces. "It's even hard to hide with makeup," they said.

Their problem may be rosacea, a condition for which our medical spa in Orlando has treated patients for years.

The National Society of Rosacea estimates that more than 16 million people suffer from rosacea. This chronic condition is characterized by:

  • Facial flushing (red face)
  • Papules and pustules (acne-like breakouts)
  • Tiny facial veins

Any one of these symptoms on the face may indicate rosacea.

If rosacea affects you, avoiding the following may help your condition:

  • Spicy foods
  • Chocolate
  • Dairy products
  • Soy sauce
  • Stress
  • Alcohol
  • Heat
  • Sun exposure

With lasers, photofacials and customized skin care regimens, Hillcrest Dermatology & Plastic Surgery has been able to help many patients manage their rosacea. Next time you are frustrated by a "red face," know help is available at our Orlando day spa.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
