    Here are my cheeks at baseline redness. This is the best they can look. I just took a cold shower and put moisturizer on. Do not think this is what they look like all the time lol.

    Since it is hard to see the streak in photo, I turned the exposure down so you can see it. It's kinda more of a blotch if anything.
    Do you mean the white blotch or the red blotch?

    The white blotch would indicate the laser worked in that area if you were previously red there before. I know that's stating the obvious, but that's good news.

Here is my latest treatment in April, I saw improvement in redness and flushing after 3 weeks I would day. Was 1.5mm, 13 joules I think. This Vbeam helped me massively get through this summer actually, and I reacted really well to it. I have another one booked at the end of October as my skin has got bad again. Hope that helps.

    I was really quite bruised, all over the face. See the link in my signature for the YouTube video. You only need to watch the first 10 seconds of the video to see.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.

    DunkWheezy,

    Did the laser help at all with the bumps associated with KP?

    Although that is not what I was going for, absolutely yes. My face is very smooth. I still have kp bumps that appear randomly though. I don't really mind the bumps as they are small and almost invisible unless up close. The redness is what kills me.

    Also, I use a salicylic acid moisturizer that helps the kp bumps every day.

    Thanks. My redness also bothers me more, but my lower cheeks feel like sandpaper. Iíve been trying for 3 months to get rid of the bumps, and while they are slightly better, theyíre not gone. Sal acid doesnít seem to help. Finacea slightly but itís so drying. Itís definitely KP. Ugh.

    I believe PDL would help you. I also noticed I had more kp bumps towards my lower left cheek. They are gone now. I wouldnít spend more than $285 for a small treatment like that. I spent $285 for both cheeks.

    I have another PDL treatment Sept 26th. I'll take pics right before, right after, and keep it updated. It is a bruising setting and I will write down the settings the doctor uses on the machine.

    Default Flush

    Here is my face after playing soccer in 80 degree heat for an hour. It used to be MUCH worse than this. I face would turn almost purple before. It's an improvement but not there yet. Hopefully my next treatment will make a bigger difference.
