I joined this group (last week after reading for a few months) more or less with the purpose to report on my first V-beam which I had in the meanwhile this morning. A bit surprisingly there isn't much to report on. It wasn't particular painful (still isn't) and the treatment itself was over in say two or three minutes (I only had my nose done). The treated spots are however very very very purple-bleu , definite bruising settings as they warned me (I don't know the exact pulse and intensity-sorry). There may also be some swelling but nothing dramatic. I had it done at a university clinic. I had an interesting chat with the doc before and after the treatment (say half an hour) on rosacea, triggers etcetera and it ended with she prescribing Inderal - something definitely on my list of things to try. I keep posting if something interesting happens while recovering.

Best regards.
