  • IPL resistant...

    I used to be a firm supporter of IPL and for several years had regular treatments with great results and no adverse side affects/effects?? whatsoever.

    However after one particular treatment I found it made my flushing much worse and did not help at all. I had a couple more, hoping it was just a hiccup, but it just got worse and worse, so I stopped.

    I then tried treatment with the gemini yag, as I heard it was good for flushing. Thankfully I found this treatment very good, with no side effects. Although I'm still baffled why I should suddenly have a bad reaction to IPL.

    Anyone else has a similar experience?

    Yes, I had virtually the same experience.
    IPL worked wonders for me intially and put my very bad rosacea into complete remission.
    After that I had regular maintenance treatments, but in my case I had too many. The doctor kept treating my P&P outbreaks, which was the wrong thing to do. I didn't have any redness, nor flushing at the time. Turned out I had a secondary bacterial infection.
    All those unnecessary IPL's made me resistant.
    Then, when I developed severe rosacea due to using topical retinyl palmitate, IPL only served to really irritate my skin and push me further into a very inflamed, swollen state.
    Also, I developed huge welts and when they subsided they took fat with them.

    I have learned that when the face is very inflamed it is probably best to reduce that via drugs before treating with IPL. This doesn't always work though.

    At one point, I had one treatment with a different IPL machine and responded better. I was told this is not uncommon.

    It is good you have found another modality of treatment which is of benefit to you.
    Previous Numerous IPL.
    Supplements: High dose Niacinamide, Vit K2, low dose Vit A. Moderate Dose Vit C, Iodine, Taurine, Magnesium. Mod- dose B's. Low dose zinc. Testing Quercetin.

    Skin Care: No Cleanser, ZZ cream mixed with Niacinamide gel 4% and LMW HA 2%, ethyl ascorbate 2%.

    Treating for gut dysbiosis.(This is helping).
    Previous GAPS diet. Have now introduced lots of fibre.
    Fermented Foods. Intermittent fasting -16-18 hours.
    Oral Colostrum. Helps reduce food reactions.

        Some times when ipl doesn't work its good to get rejuvenation from either v beam /yag etc,Then go back to ipl for good results,

        People need to understand that there are so many different settings/variables with ipl that sometimes it just doesn't work/Once again it does help to leave your face for a year or two then go back to ipl and get rejuvination,

        Ipl destorys blood vessells, the rejuvination process will always take place,Its just if its a better reult or a worse result,It does also depend on the machine and the practicinor,Ipl is no wonder cure.

          Actually, I received some damage prior to developing severe rosacea. On my left cheek. Crinkly skin with etch type lines. This was due to having a touch up treatment six days after a full face. I didn't go to the clinic for treatment. I went to show the doc my numerous outbreaks, hoping for a different antibiotic. He wouldn't even think about my suggestion and wanted to zap them. I didn't want him too, but suddenly I felt overpowered and was laying on the treatment bed before I knew it. All cognitive thought sailed out the window. Not only shouldn't I have been treated, the energies should have been much lower.
          Lord knows what possessed me to feel I had to comply as I am usually very outspoken.
          I paid the price for stupidity. Dearly.
          That large area partially healed with S&S use. Fat loss is permanent though, as you know.

          I can't remember off hand how many treatments I tried after developing severe rosacea. That part of my life is one huge blur of hell now. IT was enough to determine it wasn't working anyway. I do recall my lumenis one treatment in May 2008. Pity the operator left.

            This same thing happened to me several years ago. I had 10 or so IPL's and the first five worked, but after that there was no improvement. Actually, I developed hyperpigmentation on the left side of my face from all of the treatments.

            Right now I am trying Vbeam with little success.
