    Hi and welcome. This procedure has been written about extensively. Please enter ETS into the search and you will get a lot of information. It is not recommended for Facial Flushing, probably will not help you at al, and comes along with serious complications and side effects

    I have several friends who have suffered from "Erythrophobia" (fear of flushing). ETS surgery has helped them a lot. They are no longer so nervous, skin does not bake, do not respond blushing. Also there is no beats hot flashes. The main side effect is increased sweating. For them, it did not occur. They are happy...

    I agree. While I have no direct experience of ETS, two doctors (both experts in rosacea) have told me about bad side effects for their patients who did try ETS. It has a relatively low success rate for a very high rate of side effects, so really is not worth it in the case of rosacea.

    It has been discussed a lot in the past here. Indeed, pls use the search option. For rosacea flushing it seemed to have a bad reputation, low success rate indeed and high risk of side effects. Some people had life altering side effects like profusive sweating all over their bodies. There are sites online for ETS victims, maybe have a look there as well to get an allround image of what it can do (both good and bad)?

    Yes I have . Its a treatment for chronic blushing .

    It is not a treatment for Rosacea Flushing and I don't know why some people keep linking the two .


    It worked 100% for me and the side effects of dry palms ( Which I like ) and increased sweating on my torso don't bother me that much ( Only in summer ).

    As I wrote. It works on hot attacks. At blushing. At burning of the skin.
    That only people performs ETS surgery did not have Rosacea, only Erythrophobia. Side-effects they not experienced. (I know 3 people).
