The pulsed dye laser can be used to reduce facial redness. This is a cosmetic treatment that would not be covered by medical insurance. More than one treatment may be required to obtain the best results. Before considering such a treatment, It would be advisable to have at least one appointment with a dermatology specialist to be sure that there is no other skin problem going on.
