    Never underestimate the psychological damage from rosacea. I was diagnosed in 2003 and I never recovered since then. I am a fraction of the person I was before rosacea took control of things.

    Melissa,

    Paying $825 for a V-Beam treatment is WAY, WAY, WAY expensive. Since you live in the New York City area, the costs for treatments will be higher than other US metropolitan locations. ...
