    I also reacted badly to red light - I tried a couple of machines at various times. Are you still using mexeletine Laser Cat? How is it going?

    Ah yes, laser cat.. if I remember rightly, you have neurological rosacea, right?

    I'm dealing with a lot of post inflammatory erythema (PIE) on the parts of my face where Mirvaso was applied. What I have, is a sort of glorified sunburn which now looks patachy due to the success of some of the PDL I had. I hope red LED works for me, but knowing how stimulating it can be, I can imagine it worsening matters for some.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.

    LED therapy with red lights also seemed to make me flare up.

    One was 660nm with 1250 mcd LEDs.

    The other was the Britebox, which at the time (I don't know if it has changed) was 633nm + 830nm (infrared).

    I also got LED treatment from another unit in a dermatologist's office. It was used for recovery immediately after IPL + Nd:YAG, so hard to gauge the actual effects. I don't know the specs on that unit.

    You got Nd:YAG on the face?

    Yeah, there was a very popular doctor in the UK who had a practice combining Nd:YAG and IPL for rosacea, and a few doctors have copied him. I think the YAG probably caused angiogenesis, and Vbeam is more effective for destroying veins anyhow.
