    Default Capillary Clear ?

    Hi there,

    Was wondering if anyone has used this cream with any effect...

    http://www.body-care-shop.com/gip/br...-treatment.htm

    It just that Ive had my first IPL treatment and I wanna try some new creams out.... But dont want to try any creams that are going to make my mild redness any worse... You do here horror stories that putting unknown creams on can make things alot worse...

    Thanks for any and all input...

    Spence...

    Hello SpencerK. I think you should be very careful with this product because is contains retinol:
    "Retinol - Plumps skin, thickens the epidermis, improves texture and blood circulation. Repairs the signs of sun damage"(from the ingredient list).
    Retinol belongs to the family of compounds known as retinoids. Retin-A creams' active compound- tretinoin- is in the same group. A no-no for rosacea....

    Hope this helps,

    Adrian

    Hey Adrian,

    Thx for the info... Yeah, that does sound nasty... funny, I cant a single comment, user review, anywhere - now I know why !

    I've got mild Rosacea, with some perm redness... The perm redness seems to be compiled of small spider veins, thatís why I got it.... It actually says it can help Rosacea ? Damn, I just cannot seem to find a cream that helps with perm redness and reduces veins, that does not make things worse...

    But if there was one these here forums would be dead...

    Thx for the warning... I've emailed my derm Dr P and asked him.... Is this ok to email him and ask ?.. Its just that i had my first IPL treatment one week ago, and donít want to put anything on that will undo the IPL.

    Regards,

    Spencer.

    Hello again, Spencer. I've learned that you should try to stay flush-free during IPL as much as possible. This will give you better results. So, maybe it would be wise not to test any new products while undergoing IPL. Just my opinion.
    Take care, I wish you good luck with your treatments. Let's us know about your progress.

    Hi Rob,

    Yes indeed I did see an effect straight away... Espcially in my forehead area.... I used have these small lumps just under the skin, not P&P. But they were zapped away....

    The perm redness butterfly effect does not seem so red... But after two days some of the redness seemed to have come back... But i'm told this is just because of the damaged vessals clearer out of my body... I thought this was a line at first, thinking the worst i.e it had not worked..... But looking on my face now there are a few scabs, they look like scabbed veins.. So thats good...

    If u have any of my symptoms then id definatly go and have it done....

    If theres anything else I can help ya with please let me know

    Take care,

    Spence
