Diffuse Redness

What is Diffuse Redness?

Diffuse redness is referred to as redness or red spots without visible vascular structure. A condition caused by dilated capillaries, most commonly affecting the face and neck and décolleté.

Diffuse facial redness can occur as a result of ageing, excessive sun exposure, pregnancy, childbirth, oral contraceptives, and estrogen replacement therapy, and can be genetically passed down.

It can also be part of Rosacea or Couperose skin conditions that are associated with red vessels and/or inflammations in the face.
