Sensitive Skin: Decrease Redness and Inflammation
How to Treat
Each in-office treatment and daily care regimen should be customized using anti-inflammatory ingredients to combat redness and discomfort. In some cases, prescription intervention may be necessary to reduce redness. Topical ingredients that are effective in reducing the appearance of redness are often anti-inflammatory agents that affect microcapillary function. Many work by interrupting the inflammatory process. Several specific red and brown algae extracts suppress the pro-inflammatory mediators, VEGF, and PGE2 while caper bud extract inhibits the production of inflammatory cytokines.
