    It was aggressive, and my skin hasn't been the same since. I'm hoping that V-beam can make my skin look better than it does now (a patchy white and red mess).

    Did you have a reason why u started with IPL? Did someone recommend you IPL? I think most offices just cant afford a Vbeam laser so they try to make IPL work. Although i dont have results yet from Vbeam i dont know why i ever tried IPL..

    @ mine post above, ofcourse i mean if you had a reason to start with IPL instead of Vbeam. The way I wrote it is a little bit strange in english isn't it?

    Progress picture:



    I don't have rosacea btw, the derm told me i have Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii (KPRF). But i think its a mix of rosacea and KPRF.

    Have you visited the KPRF thread in the other conditions subforum? Me and a few others have KPRF as well that post there. One other guy had his first vbeam a few days ago.

    I have my third tomorrow and still pretty nervous despite doing it twice before.

    Thanks for the link! i didn't even notice that subforum.

    I know that feeling. If your derm advises to go for purpuric, would you accept that?

    For sure. Last time I tried to tell her to do that. Still not much at all though. Going to see about it again.

    I took the time off anyway, I might as well get an effective treatment.

    Hope she accepts to go for purpuric! (some derms are not very creative in finding the right settings) maybe you could take some photo's of other purpuric treatments with you to show her as example?

    In the topiclink i saw your previous vbeam treatments are a while ago? mine were too (6 months i think). My derm told me that its necesarry to, once you begin, have a treatment every 6-8 weeks to burst and keep the bloodvessels away. So if this did not work, i will atleast try one other.

    The skin of the guy in the other topic was very flushed after Vbeam, i dont even remembered my skin was that flushy? or maybe did my purpura covered the hole area of redness so it wasn't noticable? quite worried about that cause i think it's good to flush after Vbeam.

    I didn't know about that 8 weeks thing. My last one was almost a year ago, I put off booking another appointment. From what I read the vbeam is fairly permanent for most people. She did tell me last time I was there that I had to wait 2 months or so before I could get another so I could completely heal before getting another.

    Don't worry too much about the flushing thing, I'm not sure about that but be glad you didn't flush. I flush super easy and it's awful .

    He said its important to keep hitting the bloodvessels so they keep away and get destroyed more after every treatment so they can't come back. After a few treatments it could be permanent but its also possible you need maintance treatments he said.

    Hmm, i also flush very easy but after a vbeam i dont care flushing cause i think its a sign that it works(if you know what i mean with my bad English lol).

    Does anyone know what happends when you put a Vbeam laser with purpuric settings to a face of someone who doesn't have any dilated bloodvessels there? is purpura a sign of hitting bloodvessels?
