    Thanks again,
    Melissa
    I asked and she put niacin cream on my face for a pre-flush.

    I'd like to know if you would recommend IPL for the flushing/burning aspect of rosacea. Many people have VBeam or Nd-Yag 1064 for that type of roscea. What are your thoughts as to the best treatment for flushing and burning?

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    Jen,
    Thanks for doing this for us!
    Hope your packing's going smoothly.
    I'm sure she does, because that's what I was suffering from most, flushing and burning and boy did it simmer down after those 3 IPLs!

    Default Method

    Which IPL system do you use. It is my understanding that you use single pass only. Is this the case? If not. Have you considered triple pass to get at different levels of veins?

    Thanks for agreeing to answer some questions for us, it's a big help. My understanding is that you only use IPL for the treatment of rosacea. So i was wondering what you see as the benefits and drawbacks to IPL treatment? Do you have any experince with other laser platforms, like v-beam or KTP? If so for what reasons (results, cost of platforms etc) do you prefer to treat with IPL over these other platforms.

    Also what do you estimate your success rate for treating Rosacea with IPl is?

    Do you use any sort of blood mapping technique to track progress of treatments?

    I've been off-line for a while...just got re-connected at my new house today. I will be wrapping up the questions soon, so if anyone else has a question for Zenda, please put in a post.

    Thanks

    Jen

    Dr Garcia-Lat,

    Do you feel that IPL combined would levulan is an effective treatment for the papules and rough texure components of rosacea?

    Dr Garcia-Lat,

    What is our experience with the fading of veins after IPL? Do they seem to take a while at times to be absorved by the body? What about the possibility of them blanching then coming back and fading again?


    Thanks for your time!
