    Default I know chemical peels aren't recommended for rosaceans..

    But I'm looking into one to reduce scarring and hyperpigmentation from the sun. Since being diagnosed with rosacea my skin's texture has gotten gradually worse. I've been keeping the redness at bay with vbeam (every 9 - 12 months) but I need resurfacing. I'm fair (when not red) skinned. What's the worst that can happen (provided i follow pre- and post-peel care instructions) besides more redness and the need for another vbeam?

    OMG the thought of it gives me the chills..........I would never ever try that. There must be another laser maybe that can take care of the resurfacing but I would talk to the derm about what they think......

    Enerpeel MA (mandelic acid) is a peel especially developed for rosacea. Most chemical peels are not appropriate for rosacea, however. How deep is the scarring?
