    Default IPL Manchester area success stories ?

    Hi ,
    Has anybody and any success stories with IPL in terms of treating broken cap's ? My ones are very small and only viewable really on close inspection they just keep my cheeks a consistent pink , Red when my Rosacea flairs up - I have lost of them spread across my cheeks and my nose


    I live in Manchester , Used save face website etc and been on dermatologist websites near me but they want £200 just to have a chat with them and each treatment could cost upto £400 + dependant on treatment , I would need both my cheeks treating and then they are saying between 1-3 treatments to get best results , I will end up with a million dollar face in a two dollar body and even then my expectations might not meet the results

    The thought of IPL does scare me considering the lingering after effect I had with Thermavein and the clinic I went to was doctor led and assured me Thermavein would be ideal and stay away from lasers and IPL because its all snakes oil salesman stories

    I don't really get new cap's just old one's that have been around forever and getting fed up of them now , I didn't expect miracles with thermavein just any effect on them would have been ok considering the price I paid ,

    I spoke to a advanced electrolysis via email , didn't even show her my face , she wouldn't touch me with a barge pole because she said my veins have been compromised because of the Thermavein treatment ? which again I feel was just a cop out excuse

    Wherever I turn I see websites saying broken cap's are easy treatable then I read a lot of forums and not many I read have had their expectations meet if anything they end up with worst symptoms , What gets me is nobody knows what causes broken cap's yet everybody can deffo say that the body will never repair them and they will never go away if you treat what's causes them rather then put a plaster over them till the next time ...

    Is IPL actually the road to go down ?

    Thanks

    Discover Laser costs about £50 for an initial consultation near Burnley. However, the laser/IPL route is more expensive than medications through the private route. The general advice in seeking treatments like laser and botox is that you should not expect free consultations from the best doctors, because they value their time in giving advice. So it is likely to be the less high quality and less in demand practitioners who give free consultations.

    Different people have different causes for thread veins and redness, which is why some people respond well to some treatments and some to other treatments. Trying Zhongzhou cream (available on Amazon) would be a less risky option first to see if it helped your redness and thread veins, before embarking on further invasive treatments.

    Hi thanks for the info , I donít mind paying but the one I seen was a tad expensive for me, £200 to see , £150 patch test , £135 follow up consultation then the treatment could be anywhere upto £400 or more and I have seen a lot online saying 3 treatments or more before you start seeing really results because 1st and 2nd is just the build up...

    Thanks for the info on the cream , these IPLs are so unregulated itís scary they are popping up all over the show , beauty parlour in my town offers it for £50 I asked how trained on the IPL they was , told me a crash course over the weekend , for something that could potentially scar people for life I donít understand how they get away with it ...


    I wanted to really gauge success stories tbh on LPL for thread veins or is there anybody within Manchester and surrounding areas that do the job well ...
