    Hi,

    Have you known anyone who has tried the V beam laser on Harley Street London? Surely the quality of the surgeon must be high? I recently went to my dentist
    who said I needed a filling and I didn't agree with the advice I was given, so I checked google reviews and the later years showed more dissatisfaction with her. I
    went elsewhere and I didn't need a filling! Thanks google reviews for pointing me in the right direction. Is there anything like this for dermatologists/cosmetic surgeons.
    My GPs have not been very supportive in explaining procedures or choosing surgeons, which is pathetic given that Brexit will give them 350 million a week unless that is another lie!

    I'm just wondering whether it is quality of healthcare provider that is holding you back?

    If you look at Harley Street dermatologists and others in London, there does appear to be a lot of fake reviews, I've noticed.

    I had Vbeam on 15th November. The three months have elapsed and I still have red marks on my face from the laser. However, it has lightened a little since I last reported on 7th February.

    I need to stop looking at it daily, otherwise I'll never truly notice how much it really is healing.

    Without a doubt, this is the longest I've taken to heal, but this is the first time I've had PDL on the face during the colde months, and boy is it cold right now.

    Also, that damn moisteriser that burned my face definitely played a part. Still very angered by that. The moisteriser is one I've used for years and always applied to a wet face. The day it burned my face, my face wasn't very wet. That is the only explanation.

    I've been in touch with the laser office and all they did was book me for another laser session. I cancelled it. I don't a consultation as I think that would be overkill.

    I just want some assurance about healing time in winter, considering the burned face scenario on top of that.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.

Were you both able to achieve your results without the usual 2-3 week bruising?

    Thanks again.
    My doctor recommended DR. Firas Al Niami. He is in London. Good luck
