    Default 2006 Q&A - Interview with Dr Darm

    Dr Darm has kindly agreed to do a Q&A for Forum members on his new Aesthera Laser device and other devices he uses on Rosacea, as well as questions on medications.

    You can check out these web sites for more info and to perhaps help with specific questions you may have:

    http://www.aesthera.com/default/
    http://www.drdarm.com/index.asp?pgid=1

    Please, please, please (did I say please?) could we stick to just questions in this thread. Otherwise it will make my job much harder to put the questions together for submission to Dr Darm.

    I will leave this thread as a Sticky for about 2 weeks and then submit the questions to Dr Darm.

    A big thank you to Tricia for contacting Dr Darm about doing a Q&A. Wonderful!

    Ok, away we go. Who has a question?

    Dr. Darm - How long have you been using the Aesthera laser, do you use it in conjunction with your Genesis laser in place of the Quantum IPL??

    Dr. Darm, is the success rate with laser better than previous ones? Do you also feel it is safer than previous ones? Thanks, Evan.

    Guys, I just want to say up front that this is not an advertisement for Dr. Darm. He had talked to me about the laser and seemed pretty excited about it's prospects for rosacea treatment and Jen and I thought the board would want to know more, thus the Q & A. He in no way initiated this.

    My questions:

    Why do you feel this laser will work better than the standard IPL/1064 procedure?

    What is the technology behind it being able to "pull up the target area" and has it lived up to its advertising?

    How will this help deep flushers? What about redness?

    Are you sure it is safe for rosacea skin?

    Does it have an effect on acne/large pores/sebum ect....?

    Do you have any before and after pictures you can share?

    OK

    For some of us the nose is worst. Seems like the vacume process would not work well on that area.

    Can you use this on and around the nose, or do you use something else, or some combo of devices.

    Hi Dr Darm,
    Do you see this becoming part of your condensed protocol?

    some quick questions

    Will this machine produce results if I have tried others and had no success

    What is the downtime like compared to other procedures

    It says no pain but is this actually true

    Does this limit the areas it can treat (such as around the nose?)

    Is this machine easier for less trained doctors

    Does this machine reduce the number of treatments needed

    Oh my! I have been dragging my feet on this one. Sorry everyone! Things have been full on around here of late.

    I was interested to know that Dr Darm was willing to answer questions about medications too, so I would like to ask:

    Are there any medications that you are aware of that should or should not be taken before or after treatment? By the term "treatment", I mean laser/IPL from the machines that you use.

    Do you recommend that a patient do anything in particular leading up to treatment?

    What do you recommend post treament - topicals, medications, general.


    Last chance for questions. I will e-mail Dr Darm tomorrow night.

    Jen
