    Default Vbeam in Sydney advice

    has anyone had experience with VBeam in Sydney, preferably with the perfecta laser?
    I am probably moving out there early next year and am curious to hear from rosaceans down under.

    effectiveness, cost, experience of the practitioner, location, names of places : recommended or to avoid would be most appreciated,

    Hi,

    For some reason I thought you were from the UK. I don't know where I got that idea from.
    Where are you located now?

    Ages ago, I was thinking of going to Sydney to be treated at a clinic which has the Lumenis One IPL. From what I can tell the triple pass protocal is practised.
    The nurse seemed quite knowledgeable, but you know how it is, anecdotal reports from past rosacea patients is where we place most of our faith.
    I posted the following in the Australasian section of this forum, hoping for some feedback, but unfortunately there were no replies.

    Hi,

    Has anyone been treated at 'The Clinic- Scott +Sullivan' in Bondi Junction?
    It appears to be run by nurses, with one in particular having some years experience treating rosacea patients.
    It would be nice to hear from a client. Hopefully, a success story.

    Thanks!

    They may well have a V-beam and if they don't they might know someone who does.
    Worth a call anyway.

    Additionally, there is a Yugoslavian doctor in Sydney who seems to have a few types of equipment.
    I would be wary of him though, as he insists he helped develop IPL and has trained everyone! LOL
    Came across as very perculiar! Having said that, I recall one lady from this forum who had been treated by him with some success. I can't remember who she is sorry.

    Not much help I am afraid, but hopefully a starting point

    hi mistica, yes i do live in london at present, but my job takes me all over the world.

    i find it strange that in a country where there is so much potential skin damage, it appears (from what i can find anyway) that rosacea specialists are so scarce.

    Yes! I absolutely agree with you. It is really difficult to find anyone knowledgeable about rosacea here, let alone anyone who can treat it effectively.
    You will find a larger amount of derms with laser equipment in Melbourne. They tend to be heavily booked, so once you have decided upon a doctor, it is advisable to make an appointment right away. There is generally a long waiting list.

    If I recall correctly, there is at least one person from this forum who has been treated in Melbourne. If she sees this post, hopefully she will mention who she consulted.
    Melbourne is about an hour plus, flight from Sydney.

    Hi! I am seeing a Dr Richards at Westmead in Sydney in a couple of weeks with a view to doing laser. I will report back on what he is like.
