    Default Smoothbeam laser for papulopustular rosacea

    So am I the only one who thinks that the ultimate treatment for papules and pustules will end up being a laser that addresses the sebaceous glands?

    Has anyone out there tried Smoothbeam (1450 nm diode laser) for their rosacea? Here is a cool article regarding this:

    There is also an article regarding the 1064 LPND laser on rejuvenation mode:http://medestheticsmag.com/ndyag-las...stular-rosacea

    However, atrophic scars on 2 of 66 patients would not lead me to feel that this is a safe method for treatment as the authors seem to think. But has anyone tried either of these two methods?

    I am a big believer that the UV damage in our skin has created a weak layer of skin, and when we hit triggers that beget inflammation, our skin produces more sebum from sebaceous glands to try to protect that layer of skin, and this is why I believe we get pustules/papules. If this is the case, we need a laser to address this, or isotretinoin is the only other option. Please let me know your thoughts...

    And call me crazy, but I believe that it's research like this that will also help to eliminate papules and pustules (even though this research is looking more at acne as opposed to rosacea):

    This is a good opinion on the matter of sebaceous gland activity by a dermatologist, even if it is older:
