Facial redness is a common problem in Ireland. It can be troublesome for the individual. As we age our faces become redder. Some cases can be associated with rosacea but others can result from sundamage. Part of the problem is unsightly red veins on the nose. The gold-standard of treatment is the pulse- dye laser. Our model is the Candela V-beam. We can use this laser without causing bruising which used to happen with older models.
