  • IPL on Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii

    Hello, I have managed to get my keratosis pilaris rubra faceii under control. I am considering to get IPL treatment to improve my general skin condition, but am worried it could negatively impact my keratosis pilaris rubra faceii. I think the most likely thing that will happen is that it will be a red for a day or two then will return to normal. Has anyone ever experienced a similar situation? Thank you

    Hi, I'm going through IPL treatments now. And have had IPL and Vbeam lasers in the past. But I have rosacea. Is IPL indicated for KPRF? Are you wanting to do IPL for the redness or the flushing?

    When I have IPL, I get patches of dark surface redness and get pretty swollen. Then it subsides over a period of 2-3 days. A little extra flushiness. Then all goes back to normal. I get high settings.

      IPl wont do anything for KPRF

      And who ever put that idea in your head in the first place hasnt got a clue

      The only laser that might do some thing for KPRF is Vbeam

        Thank you for the replies.

        Yes I know the IPL won't do anything for the KPRF, I wanted to get the IPL to remove freckles. Luckily I have managed to figure out a routine to keep my KPRF under control over the years, and it would be terrible if the IPL caused it to flare up much worse. Its unlikely to happen, but definitely felt it worth a forum post to see if anyone has any experience with it.

          They use a different filter on the IPL for brown pigment. I've had that, too. Agree, you should be fine. Would be a good idea to let the operator know beforehand that you have KPRF; may affect the settings they choose to use. Good luck!

              Happy to mate. Two things out of the literally thousands of things i've tried that actually work:

              SSRI's for flushing
              Dr Nick Lowe's Redness Relief

              Apart from that all the obvious stuff like not using soap on the face, never being rough with your facial skin, only shaving at night so it calms down overnight etc.

              Hope that helps.

                3 things that helped me

                No creams . Never put anything on my face

                Never wash my face (Only when I have to shave )

                Avoid heated rooms , cars ,trains ,buses etc etc like the plague ( My worst Trigger )

                If I have to I will block the heat as best I can using a jacket or Carry Bag when I am using public transport

                  I assume you have experimented with diet? Didn't help?

                  What about the angle of the problem coming from an unhealthy gut? Have you used probiotics?

                    Of Course .

                    And in the 20 years I have had this the only thing that has made a difference to my Flushing

                    was giving up Sugar ( white refined ) and anything with Sugar in it .

                    I seem to have a problem with Apples + most other citrus fruits as well .

                    And unlike Rosacea I can eat anything else I like Dairy ,meat , Rice , Potatoes etc etc

                      Modman, you might be interested in turmeric and its ability to fade freckles and sun tan.

                      When I made a diet tweak, switched to preparing turmeric by dissolving it in fat, I eventually noticed the seemingly permanent sun tan on my forearms had faded. This was a surprise to me, but not to advocates of turmeric.

                      Increasing the bio availability of turmeric is a topic of interest among people with cancer. Adding black pepper is also mentioned, but this is achieved by it puncturing holes in the digestive lining. This explains why I feel I've been glutened whenever I try black pepper.

                        Hey Ladies,Gents

                        Pretty new to this forum but I've suffered from KPRF as well (and still doing). As regard to IPL, works super fine for me. I've been through 1/3 of my sessions and facial redness in normal state has been reduced a lot. As for diet, water,water, water and healthy eating. Since I've stopped eating potatoes,bread, pasta it seems my facial redness has gradually gone better (way better digestion now) As for daily routine, I do take high doses of green tea extracts which seem to help very well.
                        As for alcohol, i noted that it is a combination of heat (temperature), being in the wind/cold, your state of mind and fatigue level. What I mean is that for me personally alcohol didn't cause me to blush/flush unless i had walked in the wind all day and my skin was very dry. Also when I get aggrevated when drinking I go tomato red but besides that everything is doable.
                        Moderate drinking is key though and when hungover facial redness is worse then normal.

                        Will keep you guys updated about IPL sessions. Starting in oktober with a new laser because my old one is discontinued.

                        I do have one question: which moisturiser to use for KPRF only.. i've read mixed reviews on 15 en dr lowe but not sure yet.

                        Thanks in advance

                          I would love to hear updates on this as I plan on doing IPL on my KPRF as well. The derm told me with the correct settings the machine can target red. My cheeks are red and flush. I will be asking for a bruising setting if possible as i've heard from multiple people and forums that will make the biggest difference. I plan on going in Oct 29th and getting test spots on my face to see what setting works best.
