    Default Phili Area Laser Specialist

    I use Glenn DeBias. He has a few offices in the Phili area: King of Prussia, Doylestown, Allentown.

    Hey, how bout that! Ive been seeing Dr. Debias as well. For about a year now. He seems to be pretty good and the most experienced in the area. How have your treatments gone?

    I have done three IPL/Genesis treatments since October (and a few last year) and I have noticed the redness from flushing has improved steadily. The problem that I am having now is getting rid of the P&P's, which I hope to accomplish with Oracea and Metrocream.
    The air that is used to make your skin cold (so that you don't feel the sting of the laser as much) makes me feels like I can't breathe. It is a bizarre feeling, especially when the laser and air get close to my mouth and nose. So, he uses a wooden stick (like a popsicle stick) across my nose to block the air so it doesn't cause that aweful sensation. Just a suggestion incase you are having the same experience.
    How are you doing so far? I will be returning for another treatment in about a month which will be the 4th.

    The colder that air is the better for me! haha. It does lessen the sting a bit. I can relate to that feeling...I guess it is when the air is near your nose. I was very tense at the first couple of treatments..he does a good job of keeping your comfort in mind and that you are doing ok.

    Im doing pretty good with the treatments. After my initial set Im never sure when to go bad. I guess every few months.

    I guess the idea is to return when you feel like your "symptoms" are returning or getting worse. So, it would be up to you to determine when you need another treatment.
    Here's a switch! I stood a little taller last night after a friend said "hey, your face looks great!" I guess the combo platter of laser, Oracea and Metrocream are making an impact though I've only been on the medicine since Tuesday. It's all still there but not as pronounced.
    However, I was taking some clients out in this dreaded cold (I'm a Realtor by trade, whiner about skin all other times) and could feel the instant change once we hit the outside air which was below zero with the wind chill. Funny how their expression changed and I could see them not looking directly at me but sort of across my face as if to say "what's happening to her?" Maybe I should put myself out there as the Realtor with Rosacea and see what happens!!!

    Yeah I suppose i should go every few months at least...or when I want to spend a quick 250. I am ok in the cold...but that wind will make me bright red pretty quick. I easily get wind burn. A sunblock, I use rosacea care or cotz helps protect from the wind. Im an aircraft mechanic by trade...whiner about my face to!...I can relate to your saying. Maybe a scarf would help you out in the wind? Heck a realtor with rosacea...when Im ready to move Ill be in touch. Ive been taking a similar strategy as you...I use laser, noritate, and oracea....on top of the usual prevention of doing harm and all of it has helped. The oracea kicked in pretty quick with me as well. Taking in things with lots of antioxidants will make me less red as well. (apples and turkey hill green tea)

    To answer my own question that started this off I found Dr. DeBias in the Philly/Allentown area. I do not take the time to research all of the settings that people do but I have had good results going to him and I trust his opinion. I feel my face is improved and am basically in a maintenance stage. I know the redness will not completely disappear but it is under control.
