I have a very pale complexion with freckles, but I actually don't burn or tan easily. All my life I've been pasty and prone to flushing, however the tip of my nose has always been the worst, and is permanently red. I started noticing it as early as 10 years old. It gets worse in hot/cold environments, and even just when touched.
I had a consultation today and the nurse recommended 4-6 IPL treatments 2 weeks apart. I've read a fair bit about IPL now and it kind of scares me, but at the same time the thought of being able to feel comfortable not wearing make up is so appealing!
Anyway just wondered if anyone with a similar condition had found IPL or any other remedy for this? I'll post a pic below - this is my nose at it's LEAST red.
Also the dot on my nose at the moment is a scar from a recent pimple - I actually rarely get pimples or any other skin conditions besides occasional dryness or a chemical induced rash (from cleaning products, or sometimes particular make-up, cleansers or sunscreens)
Thanks in advance!
