    Thanks, Shantelle

    Very interesting, how these things work. I wonder of their origin. It seems odd, at least to me, that one would develop fungal issues that manifest themselves on the skin, especially focused solely...

    still gone for the most part.

    I have had to take some additional doses (just 2 week courses) that have been pretty easy, but i'm still about 90% bump-free. SO hard to tell what's normal. I live in the south and the humidity is...

    There are a lot of threads here on what people have used to treat demodex. TTO is not a good choice, and should not be applied to the face, not even at 50%.

    The argument that everyone has mites...

    I had BBL (a form of IPL) and it dried my skin out a bit on the cheeks, but not much, and not for more than a week. I think it depends on the oiliness of one's skin prior to treatment. I have fairly...

    Not sure what it was. Don't think it was seb derm, as there was no flaking. As far as maintenance, he didn't say anything. He told me what he thought it was, some folliculitus thing i couldn't really...

    P&p on forehead gone!!!!

    Okay, so for years i've had these annoying itchy, red, little bumps on my forehead, particularly near the hairline. I've tried everything. Topicals, laser, etc. Accutane worked, but that's not...

    Hey there. So i've had another session. The practitioner said she used a 560nm filter, and that it WOULD come back (the beard areas that are missing), but nothing has changed yet. It kind of sucks. I...

    It went pretty well. Glad to find out from her that she used a 560 last time and beard are will come back. To be safe we avoided it this time. My face looks fine. Maybe a couple spots, but no coffee...

    Thanks, Ghost. I got rid of my redness pretty early on. I had the red face going for awhile, mostly in summertime, but then was in a bad car accident and awoke completely red and covered with p&p. I...

    Hey there ghost, glad you posted today. So you have some red areas; do you ever get the 'spattered coffee grounds' thing going after IPL? Epilight... heard about it but never looked in too much. I go...

    Hey Speedy.
    For me, accutane was great at reducing papules, pustules and acne. I was only able to eliminate redness undergoing IPL. Accutane will do nothing for redness, and should you choose to try...

    Thanks, Ghost. I am excited for Friday. One thing that has gotten me a bit concerned, is certain people reporting 'fat-loss' from their faces post IPL. I have never experienced anything like that. I...

    Yeah, I should look around I guess. I actually had Sciton tell me which places in Atlanta had their machines and who recommended them. I have my second appt on Friday, I will have her avoid beard...

    Well, she did say it might come in funny, but should return to normal. The office is a pretty hoity-toity upscale dermatology office, but i could tell the practitioner was more accustomed to treating...

    I hope mine eventually normalizes! It is WEIRD. There are lines and distinct patches missing. WTF! I think I might go back and get the other two sessions for a perfect 3, (one session isn't really...
  17. Male, lost some facial hair from BBL, will it grow back?

    Hey there everyone. I had BBL performed about 3 weeks back, and she hit my chin and jawline (which HURT), and now the hair there isn't growing back! It's patchy and very noticeable when I let it go a...

    P&P on forehead only, WTF?

    Does anybody else out there get itchy, mostly flesh-colored, occasionally red bumps on their foreheads, only? I have pretty decent skin. I've been pretty flush-free for years, thanks to IPL. I seldom...

    Thanks for the advice. I had wondered about seb derm, but there's no flaking whatsoever. So, doubt it.

    Hey there, sorry no one replied (yet). I have a P&P issue as well, and go in for BBL tomorrow. My theory is that weakened, sensitive skin for some people is fertile ground for demodex mites and sebum...

    Hey, just saw this post; I am in Atlanta. I've been seeing Dr. Jamie Weisman. She's okay so far. Very smart and interested in trying new things. Have you had any success in finding a great IPL doc?

    Hey Vicki, BBL is a form of IPL; it stands for 'broad band light'. I don't know the exact details, but it's reportedly a better IPL. Great affect, less downtime. I've had the machine tested on me,...
