-facial flushing, and burning

-Permanent redness of my cheeks

-dry, irritated eyes

Hey Peter,

I believe I have facial flushing due to accutane.

My face is red thoughout the day (particularily with heat) and sometimes I blush and get really red. the cheeks are the worse as you can imagine.

I also still have dry lips to this day. I believe accutane worsened my vision, too. But it was worth it haha - It cleared my acne.

I'm planning to have v beam done in about 3 months. I just had fraxel re:pair on my forhead and I will need to wait 3+ months before I have another laser procedure.

I think I saw you did IPL for this, is that correct? How did it work out?
