Lasers: Redness is caused by blood vessels in the face. Shrinking the blood vessels with lasers can help decrease the red appearance. Lasers which treat blood vessels include: ktp, nd:yag, pulsed dye, intense pulsed light (ipl). Sun and meds that increase sensitivity to the sun (ie: retin-a, certain oral antibiotics, accutane) exacerbate redness.

Depends on cause...: I would recommend you see a dermatologist to help determine the cause of your facial redness. From there, a treatment plan can be decided on. Take care.

Keratosis Pilaris: Patients may turn to prescription vitamin a creams to help restore a smooth texture in recalcitrant cases, or as a way to help treat keratosis pilaris complicated by acne. Potent over-the-counter retinols (up to 1%) are another option. Overeager use won't help hasten silky skin. Instead it can leave the skin parched, peeling and painful. A tiny dab every other night is more than adequate.
