Skin Redness and Fragility Although visible redness may primarily be caused by a genetic predisposition, individual lifestyle can considerably affect the skin condition of every one of us. The increasing life span of the population brings an ever growing number of aging people with visible, cumulative skin damage. Their skin becomes hyper-pigmented, thin and fragile. While widely used medication (including blood thinners) does contribute to longevity, their use is often accompanied by side effects expressed in persistent hyper-sensitive redness. Paradoxically, this same group with mature skin readily adopts “active rejuvenation procedures” that can challenge the “tired” capillary walls - beyond their recovery potential.
What can be done? Unfortunately, chronic damage to capillary functioning is irreversible. The list of cosmetic means at our disposal is limited, providing only temporary relief. Generally, water based soothing and cooling hydro-gels provide fast, but short term, relief for redness and discomfort. Coagulation by heat, using phototherapy of electrolysis, has become increasingly popular because it may offer a long term improvement in certain cases. For longer lasting improvement, the use of an AHA based care regimen is recommended. Gradual skin renewal will enhance regeneration and thickening of the epidermis, diminishing the visibility of the capillaries. However, any such care must be accompanied by the “religious” daily use of broad spectrum protection.
What to Avoid? By contrast, the list of lifestyle behaviors that should be avoided to enjoy longer lasting effect is long. Smoking, coffee, exposure to the sun, hot showers, heat and dry air are the key elements to be avoided. Unfortunately, we have no control over prescribed medications. In terms of cosmetic treatments, any harsh actions such as abrasive peels, heat related treatments, occlusive preparations and metabolic stimulation. The wide use of astringents, which had seemed to be the default of choice for this skin condition, has now been proven to be too demanding for capillary fragility.
