Redness Prone Skin Solutions
Redness-prone (erythematous) skin or couperose is a common skin condition, characterized by the appearance of patches of redness which occur when dilated blood vessels become visible and show through the skin.
Individuals whose sensitive complexions are considered couperose have very delicate, dry, flushed appearance, particularly visible at the sides of the nose, on the cheeks and the chin.
Besides to being visually unaesthetic the condition in many cases leads to high skin sensitivity and uncomfortable feelings. The causes of the condition are the result of a combination of internal, hereditary and external factors. Among the second group of factors can be listed climate conditions, extreme cold or over-exposure to the sun and lifestyle habits such as the chronic consumption of alcohol, smoking and stress. Excessive rubbing or aggressive pressure onto the skin may also cause the dilation and bursting of the capillaries just beneath the skin, which may lead to redness and sensitivity of the complexion.
As of today there is no medical solution to cure this condition however medical and cosmetic treatments have a healing effect and can help improve the overall aesthetics of the skin. The medical treatment is based on the use of steroid creams known to have side effects over long periods of time.
Our Solution is Medik8, Atopalm and Hydropeptide
Medik8 Red Alert actively reduces skin redness. Provides intensive, calming relief for redness and flare-ups caused by skin hypersensitivity. Helps the skin combat daily environmental stress, improves the lipid barrier of the skin and visibly reduces the signs of skin ageing. Soreness and surface irritation are eliminated, while the damaged skin components that induce chronic erythema are restored to their proper function.
Active ingredients of Medik8 Red Alert are Teprenone and Organic Sage Extract.
Teprenone is a patented active ingredient shown to diminish the redness caused by facial thread veins or mild rosacea. Teprenone reduces erythrosis by up to 30% after one month of directed use. Studies show that Teprenone extends the life of the cell’s telomeres (part of the chromosome) which effectively means the cells can divide for longer without dying. The skin becomes more youthful and redness is alleviated.
Organic Sage Extract is a potent soothing and calming ingredient.
Red Alert Serum relieves and calms dry irritated skin by controlling and mitigating signs of redness, helps to reduce the blood flow to the facial skin to alleviate flushing, blotchiness, flare-ups and discomfort, inflammation and soreness, provides high levels of environmental protection from such aggressors as pollution and harsh weather, stimulates the healing of the inner layers of the skin to help prevent future irritation, helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Fast absorbing, non-drying, non-sensitising & non-irritating, lightweight and non-greasy Medik8 Red Alert formula does not clog the pores and is fragrance and paraben-free provides visible results after just one month.
Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream is safe for use on extremely dry, sensitive, rosacea-free skin types, it is especially beneficial for those with rosacea.
Paraben-free and formulated with Atopalm’s patented MLE technology, Intensive Moisturizing Cream begins with moisturization. This special MLE technology actually mimics the structure of the skin’s natural lipids, which enables it to supply natural-feeling hydration and prevent future dehydration, leaving the skin moisturized and comfortable without any greasy residue.
Secondly, Intensive Moisturizing Cream targets rosacea symptoms by eliminating redness. Plant-derived ingredients gently yet efficiently restore clarity and normal skin tone, allowing you to once again enjoy the beauty of a bright, healthy-looking complexion.
Thirdly, this rosacea face cream banishes irritation, whether it is caused by rosacea, environmental aggressors, dermatological treatments, or simply dry skin. The stinging and burning often felt with rosacea is reduced, and the face is left feeling calm and comforted.
When used as a rosacea treatment, Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream should be applied twice daily. Use it in the morning after cleansing to prepare your skin for the day ahead. Then, use it at night before bed to allow your skin to be soothed and restored while you rest.
The field of neuropeptides has recently emerged as a promising new way to address cosmetic problems through an action on the cutaneous nervous system. The skin is richly innervated and contacts have been described between nerve fibres, keratinocytes and melanocytes. Neuropeptides produced by nerve cells as well as skin cells and immune cells serve as preferential messengers to maintain skin homeostasis. Rupture of this equilibrium by external or internal aggressions leads to cosmetological disorders. Neurogenic inflammation, a cause of skin hypersensitivity and premature aging, is such a manifestation.
Neutrazen is a true neurocosmetic specifically designed to prevent and reverse signs of neurogenic inflammation. Neutrazen is an innovative tri-peptide linked to a lipid for optimal penetration and efficacy. Neutrazen calms and soothes irritated skin and helps to maintain and restore a normal skin sensitivity threshold.
Telangyn is an innovative tetrapeptide specifically designed to decrease the appearance of facial redness and telangiectasia caused by an exaggerated inflammatory response.
