    Default Anyone know what settings(filters, heads, joules, pulses

    my derm's RN who does the treatments uses the pre-programmed settings which I feel have done as much as they are going to do for my rosacea. Although improved, I still have a ways to go yet.

    She is open to suggestions but I have no idea what to suggest? Please, please, if anyone can help me.

    Just upping the joules is not helping?

    Please feel free to send me a private message here at the site or I can give you my e-mail .

    A good IPL provider is someone who watches closely at how each IPL session affects you and then adjusts the settings accordingly. An IPL provider who uses only the presets and does not adjust them to your responses cannot give you quality IPL. To tell you the settings that were used for my IPL and then have your nurse plug those in scares me. I would run, not walk from that clinic. I am not a doctor so this is only my opinion.
    I did an enormous amount of research on IPL and on IPL providers in my area (I chose a 300-mile radius) before I selected one. I drive 250 miles roundtrip to the clinic I go to. I'm grateful for the opportunity--you might not have the choices that I did in your area because I had 3 really good providers to choose from. But I eliminated a lot of dogs.
