Rosacea and laser therapy

Recommended Posts

Hey has anyone had laser therapy for their Rosacea??

I've been on "metro cream" (I forget the full name) and doxyciline (probably spelling that wrong lol) for just over a week.......with no results what so ever. My face is horrible...........I basically just sleep and cry my days/nights away. I see a dermatologist in the next two months and I'm going to be requesting some laser treatments (I hear they work wonders). I'm thinking Intensive Pulse Light Therapy.....IPL.

Any thoughts?

Hi..i have rosacea too along with lots of ice pick scarring...i use 2% s.a wash evry nite and then apply 2% b.p...in the mornings i wash again with s.a. wash and then apply .75% metro gel..this seems to be helping..it stopped the acne part..and the redness is going away...i've doing the for about 2months now..i am getting tca spot treatments starting 2morrow and further treatments over the summer which include IPL..i'll keep u updated...

Ya please keep me posted.....I hope it goes well for you! Almost all the literature and reviews I read on Laser say nothing but wonderful things. Some think it's even a cure! Good luck!
