I have very fair skin with an uneven pink complextion that is very prone to blushing. Sometimes the blushing is for no good reason at all and can last for an hour. Will a Photofacial help with the blushing?
Can Photofacials Help Excessive Blushing?

Photo facials and blushing
Photo facials will not prevent blushing. Blushing is a physiologic response to heat, anxiety, etc. However, the broken blood vessels that are caused and exacerbated by blushing that leads to Rosacea can be significantly improved through photo facials and IPL treatment. I also have had a huge amount of success with the V-Beam treatment for rosacea, redness, and telangiectasias. It is important to find an experienced board certified dermatologist for any of these cosmetic facial procedures.

Facial redness and blushing may be associated with rosacea. IPL or photofacial is a good treatment option for this. You may require a series of treatments, spaced one month apart from each other.
It depends, in some cases this can be helped. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.

Photofacials can improve flushing
Flushing and blushing can be part of rosacea, which is treated beautifully with IPL photofacials. It may require a number of treatments, but overall the redness and flushing can be significantly reduced in time.
