Redness in the skin is often caused by dry and sensitive skin, while the skin condition rosacea usually shows itself as flushing of the face, that lasts a little longer each time. Rosacea can become a chronic inflammatory skin condition without treatment, as the blood vessels become more visible on the face, causing a red face and neck (most noticeable on fair skin).
Anything that irritates your skin can worsen rosacea. If possible try to avoid;

– Sun damage
– Hot showers
– Red wine

Treatments like Excel V, Vbeam or Laser Genesis can be great options for more extreme cases of rosacea, when the condition have caused skin thickening and very visible blood vessels. The laser therapy should be preformed by a professional dermatologist or plastic surgeon, and often requires a minimum of six laser sessions.
