    I had IPL in November 2018 and it took three weeks for the flushing and redness to subside. I began developing the "Coffee grounds" things which soon dropped off to reveal speckles of brighter skin....

    I've been using Altruist SPF30. Look it up on YouTube for reviews by derms.

    It was created by UK GP Dr Andrew Birnie. They are sold together in twos for about ?8, and it seems non-irritating to...

    Go for carbs that are not too gylcemic. Brown rice, for example. I still eat carbs, like bananas, but I eat a little piece of fresh ginger to stop blood sugar spikes.

    There's times in the past...

    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...

    Try azelaic acid for 3 months first. Build up to the full strength AA. The Ordinary sell AA as 10% last time I checked.

    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.

    My first few lasers helped and gave some clearance. The last...

    Ok, so it's been 7 months since I had PDL. It was my third full-face treatment. I am WORSE at baseline now. However, it could continue to fade.

    About 8 weeks post-treatment, I had a horrible...

    I tried my 36 Watt light again this morning. I used it for 5 minutes close to my face. 9 hours later, my face is tight, dry and red, with a burning sensation. I looked in the mirror and the areas...

    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%.

    You'll need to...

    For you flushers as well as red faced folks, comsider Azelaic Acid. I'm currently working back up to using it daily at 20% strength (Skinoren) which I was doing before my last treatment. I stopped it...

    I realise that not trusting any doctors ever again is a limiting belief. I could cite any physcological school of thought and logically my mistrust of doctors could be "disproven". However, my...

    I should probably be using my 36,000 mW bulb at over 100cm from my face for no more than 10 seconds, if that. It seems I'd be seriously overdoing it and probably DID overdo it the last time I burned...

    I complained. Long and hard. I wrote letters. They denied it all. The GP who prescribed Mirvaso lied too. I was referred to other regulation bodies and medical organisations.

    Before you go for laser, are you using any topicals?

    You could try Niacinamide for three months or so, as this strengthens the skin barrier and helps retain moisture.

    I think those lasers you...

    I wish I'd been prescribed Azelaic Acid rather than Mirvaso. Or even Niacinamide. I had to discover these truths by myself.

    I forgot to add that even areas of my face that were not treated with Mirvaso suffered a redness that has never really gone away.
