Facial flushing is a common problem that is encountered by fair-skinned patients of Celtic and Northern European descent. Although usually transient in nature, some patients display a persistent reddened skin tone, with periods of increased erythema. Treatment of this condition is limited. Objective.

To describe a novel method for the treatment of persistent facial flushing. Method.

We report a case of persistent facial flushing that was resistant to multiple pulsed dye laser treatments and was successfully treated with botulinum toxin A. Results.

The posttreatment appearance was dramatic, and the patient was highly satisfied with the cosmetic outcome. Conclusion.

Botulinum toxin A can be used in small quantities to decrease persistent facial flushing temporarily.
