Hi All,

I am just contributing my experience here because I landed on this thread looking for someone else who shared my experience with swelling specific to post-initial v beam treatment... The swelling I got from my first Candela V Beam treatment for ETR rosacea on my face and chest was what I would call "pockmarked". It was lumpy, and the swelling appeared to give my skin a lumpy/bumpy texture from a profile view whereas there was no texture prior to Vbeam. Freaked me out a bit because swelling as I know and have experienced it on my face was more akin to the type you get with a hit/knock to the face or shot of something that hits a vessel (botox etc.). The edema from PDL was unrecognizable to me, so it was startling at first.
