    Default how many treatments and space between treatments

    Hi all,

    I've been getting V-beam treatments on my chest for what is basically rosacea and/or rosacea symptoms (flushing, diffuse redness, broken caps, extreme sun sensitivity, rough skin. No doc or derm has been able to officially diagnose it - it stumps them all! Esp. because my face is clear). Anyways, I've so far had two, and I'm pretty happy with the results. My derm treats the whole decollete area with non-purpuric and then goes over the problem areas with purpuric (like a spot treatment). My Broken caps are gone. The diffuse redness is fading. And just overall, my skin feels smoother. Although I am still healing from the last one (one week ago).

    Anyways, I'm wondering if I should go in for a third treatment or leave it at two. How many of you have had just two treatments? How beneficial is a third treatment? I want to kick this flushing/redness in the butt, but at the same time, treatments are expensive. I know it varies person to person. But any advice would be appreciated!

    Heya
    If you still have flushing and want to eliminate it as best you can, then further treatments would be advisable. It is advisable to space treatments every 6-8 weeks (or longer) to ensure that the healing process is complete before getting further treatments.
