    Default Vbeam Redness in untreated areas post treatment

    Is it possible to develop redness in untreated areas of skin post treatment of a small patch on temple? Or can the laser only affect the skin it has come into contact with?

    Has anyone had any experience with this?

    Yes it is absolutely possible, as I have experienced it, and also, if you read the interviews with the late Dr Crouch here on this forum, he describes the same thing. When your skin is hit with the laser, blood often gets pushed to the sides of the treatment site, resulting (at least for me) in little diamond-shaped areas of redness, or "pockets" of redness as I call them.

    The next time you have a treatment, try to make your skin flush right before the session begins, so the laser doc can see these areas better. I always try to have treatments in winter as it is cold here in the UK and the room I have the treatment done in is always warm.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.
