In brief: Facial flush origin

Dilatation of facial arterial or arteriole supply will result in facial flushing: it may be a normal response to environmental or social interaction, and may be a normal event.
If it is persistent or occurs very frequently, one should have a physical examination to evaluate the possibility of underlying hypertension or hormone producing mass or dysfunctional organ.
