    yeah:

    Dosage is the key, I took 10mg every other day for a while, and even that was too much. Isotretinoin can be potentially very helpful but the dose must be low.

    I guess... all I really know is it says 100% pure Aloe Vera gel on the bottle. It's not anything exotic, I bought it at Walgreen's IIRC.

    Pure aloe vera gel works great for me. Doesn't irritate and it's absolutely invisible.

    I've gotten a lot of sun also, so I'm going to get an IPL treatment at the end of the summer.

    I like calendula oil for sunburn, or pure aloe gel. (I've never seen calendula oil in stores though, only online.)

    Aspirin or an NSAID like naproxen are good as well, if you're not sensitive to...

    Propranolol blocks adrenaline, so it helps with anxiety-related flushing and panic attacks.

    Clonidine helps flushing by lowering blood pressure (it dilates blood vessels - but in a good way).

    So... update. I hate RLT and I love it. It's crazy how the effects can be so good, and yet so bad. Anyway I'll try to put my thoughts in order here.

    I think I used RLT too soon after my last IPL, so I would say give it a couple months. I know it's hard to wait that long if it helps you, but it does promote angiogenesis and if your body is healing...

    Yes, quite. The last few days have been particularly good, with even the stubbornly red/blotchy skin in my sideburn area having faded to a consistent pink.

    Still amazing. I'm glad I went ahead and spent the $130 bucks to try it out. I mean, compared to what Botox or IPL costs, it's a drop in the bucket and if it works there are no maintenance costs.
