Redness

Redness, flushing, erythema and rosacea are common chronic inflammatory skin conditions. Rosacea and other forms of erythema are characterized by facial redness, telangiectasias (enlarged blood vessels), and sometimes lesions that look like acne papules and pustules. Rosacea affects approximately 14 million Americans with a rapidly increasing number of individuals affected as the "over 40" population continues to grow. Most commonly, the clinical onset of rosacea begins between ages 30 and 50, but can occur in adolescence or in the elderly. Rosacea is also much more prevalent among women; when men get rosacea it is usually far more severe.

The Skin Care Management System includes technologies such as green tea extract, azelaic acid, glycolic acid and sunscreen to improve the appearance of redness and flushing. The following products are designed specifically to address these conditions. Each of these technologies may be used as stand-alone products or as accelerators to the Skin Care Management System.
