    Default first vbeam

    Well, I am scheduled to have first vbeam. I initially wanted to just treat capillaries on my chin (and redness) but doctor wants me to use vbeam which is for the entire face (rosacea areas only, of course). I was ok with some redness on my cheeks, even with a flair, but he wants to use the vbeam which mean I'll be doing a lot of area and I am worried about the recovery period. What should I expect two weeks out from treatment - hoping to be fully recovered within 4 weeks with no additional redness. Is that doable?

    40 views and no response from anyone who used vbeam? I'm using vbeam perfecta and hoping to schedule this very soon but I only have about 3 weeks of recovery time before I have too many public functions to deal with. Hoping to be pretty much healed within that timeframe and will NOT be getting purpuric treatment (bruising might still be a side effect though but not expected).

    Should all swelling be gone within 10 days? Does that sound the norm to those who have had this?

    It really just depends on the settings, My last treatment I only had swelling for 3 days. I've had 5 treatments so far and they take about 2 weeks to for me to fully recover ( non bruising )

    Thank you wicksyx. Did you see redness decrease by week 3 by any chance?

    Yeah but only the smallest bit, like 10% - 15% 1st treatment is always the most disappointing for results. It really just depends on the severity of your redness
