    But i know Allready what h gonna say Shantelle.
    Give it more time give it more time. But nothing has
    improved. Maybe Nataljoo is right and there are more upperfacial
    bloodvessels now to see.

    I hate this kind of thinking but i am realy scared now
    that The laser did nothing doing good. I want that i never
    did do this treatment.

    Statham.

    Hi Shantelle,

    Thanks for pointing me to your pics. You look great now but you looked great before too (in your avatar pic). You can definitely tell much of the pinkness from you avatar pic is gone in the new ones. Congrats on your success! If I ever get this darn seb derm under control, I will consider a similar treatment for my pink nose and cheeks and the spider veins on my nose. I decided to look into a course of oral anti-fungals for my seb derm and discovered I can't take them with my Tourette's medicine so I have to decide if I'll take a short break from the extremely small amount of meds I take for that.

    Hi there Shrimpy

    Thank you for your kind words Yes getting SD under control is a mission but hopefully you will get it under control very soon Vbeam is definetly good for reducing redness/pink in the skin. it is exceptionally good for absorbing broken blood vessels too.

    Hi Statham
    Let us know what the Derms says at the follow-up appointment. I would say you must still be healing because purpuric treatment is very aggressive and can take months to heal, but let us know what he says...
    Best, Shantelle

    Hellow Shantelle,

    Today I had the appointment with the derm. He was also again very surprised why the
    redness won't fade. He still thinks it is an defense reaction of the skin, but I think that's not anymore because we are now 11 weeks after the treatment without any improvement.

    I have made an new appointment for 13 april this year. Then I get a testspot with a lower setting to see if this help.

    I hope the best but still angry and worried that this time the laser has give me more redness with my diffuse redness. It sucks but we must go on in life.

    Hi there

    I don't fully understand what he means about the skin throwing up a defense action, because vbeam laser isn't suppose to affect the skin (vbeam actually protects it); this laser only targets the blood vessels underneath the skin surface, which post-treatment take up to approx 12 weeks to heal/be absorbed by the body during the healing phase.... Perhaps you could aks him to explain this theory a little bit more, especially as you have had treatments beforehand??? Or it might be safe to seek a second opinion. Either way, I would strongly advise you not to get purpuric vbeam treatments because with new vbeam laser technology purpura isn't neccessary to get excellent results over the course of a few treatments.

    Hey shantelle

    thanks for your answer and advice. I asked him few weeks before
    what h means with this defense reaction. H means that the
    blood vessels are, because there were hit are all opened now and
    has problem to go away with the blood. In my opinion The
    treatment was to strong and activated or damaged more good healthy
    blood vessels. But that is almost impossible The derm thinks.

    The Next appointment i ask if The can treat me with very low setting
    The use candala vbeam laser system by the way.

    Shantelle,
    Just saw your before and after picture; it doesn't even look like you have rosacea now! Congratulations! I asked my derm about v-beam but at the appointment i had some flaking and he said "i am not opposed to laser for you, i just dont think you should blast your face right now when you are flaking and inflamed." Did you have to get rid of sebderm before getting the laser? Also, in some post you mentioned you felt you were in remission, did you have to get to this point to do the laser? finally, was the remission because of The plaquenil?
    Thanks
