    After 2 useless KTP sessions (Cutera Excel V) I'm now seeing someone at a laser training academy which is also a doctor-led clinic.

    The person I saw is knowledgable and is proposing a test patch...

    Ok, so I'm replying to this thread at 15 months since my third Vbeam. The redness is still there, and by redness, I mean redness from the purpuric treatment, not redness that was on my face...

    What is it about IPL that seems so dangerous? I hear about skin damage the most due to this type of laser. Having said that, I have a worsened baseline due to PDL, but I'm 99% sure it's because of...

    Consider yellow LED at around 583nm - 589nm. You can buy 7 colour LED machines with three panels that are positioned over your face. Use it every day for 20 minutes, for 3 - 6 months. Yellow...

    I healed from my treatment, yes, but there was no improvement. That's two KTP sessions, each of which was sold to me with the promise that I would see results. None of that turned out to be true....

    Assuming your flushing is not too bad, a layer of vaseline will help the healing. Be careful though, as a really hot blush or flush will mean the heat in your face gets trapped below the occlusive...

    Hi Brady. I just scanned the ingredients list from the package of the Synchroline Synchrorose "Fast" product. I had a flush last night, and after rinsing my face with cold water and allowing to dry,...

    Yellow LED following laser treatment

    This year I bought a 65watt 7 colour LED machine from China. I purchased it for the yellow wavelength at 583nm which I wanted to improve baseline redness.

    I've recently learned this wavelength may...

    I'm on day 3 of my second Excel V KTP (532nm) and my face still looks slightly swollen and has a burning/stinging feel on the left side (which is where I was heavily treated).

    My face looks pretty...

    Keep the tub of vaseline somewhere where it will be slightly warm. I keep mine on top of my boiler. This way, the product is slightly soft and glides onto the skin easily, meaning no aggressive...

    They showed me photos of patients who had had the same laser as I, with the proviso that they had only had success as a result of using the products on an ongoing basis. I held my tongue at various...

    Yes, I found those too. It seems I may have been way overcharged to account for the commission the "salesperson" (also the laser tech) wants to get out of the transaction. I will ask next time, in an...
  14. Cutera Excel V KTP (532nm) 3 hours post-treatment

    Hi. In 2017, I was prescribed Mirvaso for persistent flushing, which I used only twice but which produced rebound flushing lasting over a year. I developed baseline redness and sought out a series of...

    I recommend you use vaseline to keep your skin moist. It will heal better. Only apply vaseline to clean skin as it will trap any dirt particles and result in acne.

    Today I had a KTP laser session, where I was relentlessly badgered and pressured into buying topical products (all over-priced), one of which was the Synchrorose "gentle cleaning gel". I've slightly...

    7 days ago I had a full face treatment using the 532nm (KTP) laser on what I assume must have been low settings, because despite being read for a few hours, the next day, my face looked the same as...

    I've said on multiple occasions the reason I got worse after treatment was because of a bad flush I had. It was contact dermatitis a few weeks after Vbeam. Was never the same after that day. Healing...

    It's almost a year from the Vbeam in 2019, and I still haven't healed. There are marks everywhere and the face is still red. It is redder than before I had the treatment.

    2 days ago, I had a full...

    I would stay away from active creams for a few months.

    Apply vaseline to a clean moisturised face in the morning. Prevent TEWL and help PIE marks fade.

    Obviously, use sunscreen if going out....

    Sun beds are not to be used. UV light is extremeley damaging. Try the LED machines but proceed with caution. The red wavelength may help your chest.

    I made little difference. I had a full face treatment 2 days ago, and there is no change. I think I need to go stronger, but I'm afraid to do so.

    The people at the clinic are all very friendly and...
