    I quit the Skinoren in the end. It was sensitizing my face way too much. It'd be going bright red at random throughout the day. Packed it in about 3 weeks ago and the flushing stopped. I still have...

    How much downtime did you experience? By this, I mean how long were the bruises visible for? I epxted to be healed within 3 months. It's been 9 months and I still have faint redness where the laser...

    This is why I'm afraid of the 1064nm "Genesis" mode on the Cutera Excel V. I'm reading an instruction manual:

    I'll keep this in mind. I am using Azelaic Acid which actually thins the skin. I was using AA for months and right up to the day before my last Vbeam. Maybe that's why I've taken so long to heal.

    It's true about diluting electrolytes if you're drinking water all day. I work out on Saturdays and sweat heavily for 2 hours. In that time I will sip 2 pints of water, each with added salt. The more...

    Skinoren is 20% Azelaic Acid. This may help, but before you start putting this on your face, get a 10% Azelaic Acid over the counter. The Ordinary do one. Build up to it slowly.

    I've been back on...

    Can you give details? The wavelength of the KTP? I'm planning on a test patch with the KTP at 532nm, but what you're saying is alarming.. but you must give specific details. I know the Cutera Excel V...

    It's continuing to improve with my religious use of skin care, as well as LED light (yellow).

    Post Inflammatory Eryethma is what I'm dealing with. The same kind of redness left behind after acne...

    To the original poster: It's been six weeks or so since you were treated. When I had IPL it took about 4 weeks for my face to settle, as I too had flushing and stinging.

    I also had Vbeam (PDL) in...

    Wow, glad you brought this up, as I love balsamic vinegar on my salad leaves. I take apple cider vinegar every day however, and will continue doing so.

    Yes it is absolutely possible, as I have experienced it, and also, if you read the interviews with the late Dr Crouch here on this forum, he describes the same thing. When your skin is hit with the...

    Sounds like a regular vBeam treatment. The white circles mean it's been successful. You need to go back and make yourself flush right before the treatment and tell them to treat the bits that look...

    Like you, I used a topical as prescribed by a doctor, which led to awful flushing and a red face. Your story is very similar to mine.

    I'm using the slightly stronger "Skinoren" (Azelaic Acid 20%) which I can tolerate without issue. I started off on an over the counter 10% formulation before moving on to the 20%.
