    I've only used powder. It might be prescription-only depending on where you live. The pills are OTC in some countries, but might be difficult to use for soaking because of the fillers. The solution...

    I saw an improvement from the first soak. You probably need to keep it up to keep the veins under control.

    Propranolol, clonidine, mirtazapine, and mepacrine. Propranolol helped, but not that much and made me unable to exercise. Clonidine gave me Reynaud's in winter and years later one of my toes looks...

    Btw, you might like topical tranexamic acid instead of the pills. Perhaps the doctor could make a solution for you, or prescribe ampoules for soaking? i would suggest asking if there is a risk of...

    I'd probably try Vbeam, but only if you trust the practitioner. There are a lot of people out there who shouldn't be treating patients with lasers.

    I'd never heard of copper bromide lasers before,...

    595 nm is best for destroying veins without damaging other tissues. Longer wavelengths made me worse too. Is there a vbeam specialist near you? I'd look for a doctor who has done thousands of Vbeam...

    This is the 4th treatment and the 1st time I bruised. Not sure about the settings but he's been raising the energy used each time.

    It has helped a lot -- but I've only had one non-Prima Vbeam treatment, and it was with an inexperienced Vbeam practitioner and non-purpuric, so it's hard for me to compare.

    I went back for my 4th treatment today. This time I got some small bruises around my nose, which are probably not really noticeable under sunscreen, and a larger circular one on my forehead that will...

    I'm not sure what's going on with the red marks. It sounds like maybe something coagulated and hopefully it will get absorbed. Is it worth asking the doctor what happened? Sorry I don't have better...

    I don't know of any published guidelines, but I see a doctor who does clinical trials of Vbeam for Candela and he always tells me to come back in 4 or 6 weeks. 2 weeks has always been too soon to see...

    I'm pretty sure they're vascular, so treatments that destroy the veins should stop them from appearing

    I moved and see someone in the US, so it's probably not of much help to you. Feel free to message me if you want his name, though. There are some reviews on this forum for other Vbeam practitioners...
