    validation vs invalidation

    I am wondering who here has even 1 person in their life that understands their suffering due to rosacea?
    Someone who feels genuine sympathy for the suffering rosacea causes you?

    The pictures I posted in this thread, I just took today, 3 hours after the Q switch laser. What you see is the immediate post op of the Q-switch laser.
    I didn't take any pre op pics, I was stupid.

    Hi Board,

    Carl,
    No, the spot that didn't bruise before at 1.5ms did not bruise today at 0.45ms. That is my major disappointment with today's Vbeam.
