    Default 7 weeks out after 3rd V beam

    Hello ALL,

    So I'm 7 weeks out after my 3rd treatment. I'm still red, flushy, and patchy. I did get a microneedling procedure two weeks ago that seems to have had little to no effect. Any advice? Do you think it will take longer to see results? Should I just give up? Leave it all alone?

    I don't think microneedling will help the redness but it does even out wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars. It did a great job on scars for me

    Actually I was told by my derma that home rolling with probably 0.2mm roller and peptide serum and vitamin C will help redness but I'm not sure. Anyone try that?

    What do you mean? What is 0.2mm roller?

    i needle also but I usually wait until after the 7 week heal period. I do not put peptides or vitamin c as they can be irritating. I use calendula oil. I find that needling does calm down my post treatment flushing and has softened my scars. Your face may be reacting to a product.
