    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 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...

    Yes, classic subtype 1 with none of the type 2 bumps. I've had three sessions with the Vbeam Prima laser, 4-8 weeks apart. We increase the energy used each time to assess tolerance.

    In retrospect I wish I had skipped trying different drugs to stop flushing and instead just gotten Vbeam and used tranexamic acid for flushing. I know topical tranexamic acid is still somewhat of an...

    I've also taken it for a month at a time. It seems to help with swelling and flushing a little, but it's hard to be sure.

    I just waited until the swelling went away, about 2 days. If you have surface damage (which as I understand isn't supposed to happen with PDL) I'd wait longer.

    Glad to hear it. I've paused tranexamic acid soaking for a while because I'm getting Vbeam treatments and I have no idea what the interactions could be.
