    Unfortunately there are no topical skincare products that safely and effectively treats red skin. There is one prescription — Mirvaso — that temporarily reduces redness but requires reapplication every eight to 12 hours and unfortunately sometimes results in increased redness, as the cream wears off. The good news is, there are many vascular lasers available in dermatologists’ offices (eg. pulse dye lasers) that do effectively and permanently remove the redness.
