  • Are you a rosacean?
  1. While some rosaceans have had success with various laser/ipl treaments to reduce flushing in the facial area, some or most that I have read about continue to have problems with ear flushing that doesn't respond as well as the face and neck to these treatments. Are there any research intitiatives or treatment protocol experiments underway to look futher into this condition of problematic flushing of the ears ?
  2. My apologies. I will try to frame the question in a different manner per the forum's guidelines. gns
  3. I have been following various forums and have read the debate as to which form of laser/IPL therapy and treatment protocol is the best treatment alternative for rosacea. While I know there are several different subtypes, the one of most interest to me is Subtype I or simply stated as vascular rosacea where redness and flushing are the main symptoms. Although the best treatment approaches are perhaps best handled on a case-by-case basis, it would be beneficial for most readers if we could get a summary of the best laser/IPL alternatives/protocols for the different types of rosacea and any accompanying prescription or supplement medications that would enhance the effects of the treatment. It is all quite confusing if you read all of the posts. For example, the Sciton laser is either hailed as the new gold standard for treatment or a waste of money. You should flush before treatment, but perhaps not. You should take clarithromycin after an IPl treatment, but perhaps not because of the risks. You can effectively treat the ears for flushing or you should never do this as it poses risks for ear cartilage. You should triple pass on each treatment if possible with the 560, 590 and 640 filters ( Lumenis 1) or the 560 with multiple passes is just as good. Some direction on these and similar question regarding laser/IPL treatments would be much appreciated.
