    Unfortunately I haven't really, though I will say eating lighter in the evening (I try not to eat at all after 6pm) has helped with flushing at night laying down to sleep. My next step is to try...

    I definitely wouldn't use the machine made for legs on your face. IPL should be done in a dermatologists' office.

    I think I have the same issue. It's possible my neurogenic rosacea coincidentally started while I was doing IPL treatments but I do feel like there is at least a chance that the treatments aggravated...

    I haven't really looked into Lyrica yet- I thought that was more for pain, or is that not the case? I actually don't have the pain symptom, which seems like it's fairly common with neurogenic...
