  1. I was just seen by an estetician (sp?) after receiving laser resurfacing. I look like I have a sunburn and she recommended a moisturizer with spf in it, as well as products with Green Tea in them as they help the healing process. The reason I'm posting in this section is I figured with rosacea we're all trying to cover up the red. What products would you recommend? I purchased a clinique redness control mineral powder, but might need a base to put on before that as well. Any ideas? My apt with h
  2. I'm on the post week mark of my surgery, have an apt with the dr today to follow up. I was just curious if anyone has any tricks of the trade to getting vaseline out of their hair? I've been lathering it on like crazy, per doctor's orders, but even when I wash my hair a fair amount is still stuck in there. HELP!!!!!!
  3. I'm so glad to hear that the healing is going nicely. You hit the nail on the head. I'm sure your brother is glad he got it done, even with a few hiccups along the way. Thank you for the update
  4. Well, I just had this same procedure with a CO2 Fractional laser done a week ago tomorrow. I'm not sure how soon after the treatment this picture was taken, but I can speak from experience that the first couple days do not look pretty in the slightest. In my opinion I looked worse than the young man pictured for a good 2 days afterwards. Fortunately, my DR prescribed valium for the panic attacks. It was quite surreal to look in the mirror, almost like it wasn't me I was looking at. I find it odd
  5. After months of frustration, researching, and second-guessing my decision, I went ahead and got the CO2 Lumitrix (sp?) laser done. It's a relatively new laser type that is a step up from its predecessor. I had it done Wednesday afternoon, after many a sleepless night before that, I went into it knowing I was doing the right thing. I decided back in Februrary, after finally getting my rosacea and major acne flair up under control (I don't care what people tell me, the gardasil shot caused it) wit
  6. I would talk to whomever is conducting your surgery. My Plastic Surgeon gave me quite an extensive list of medications that can't be taken before the procedure. Then they have given me instructions on what to take/stay away from afterwards!
  7. I would do some research on other doctors in your area, maybe ask at your place of work and/or friends who they have used. Believe me, I know what you mean... I'm 24, semi-attractive but just want my self-confidence back. The idea of handing over the rest of your life over to someone is incredibly scary, but I think that once you've done some research and feel comfortable you'll be happy you did it. I, myself, am getting the fraxel done by a surgeon who came recommended by two friends (neither
  8. Thank you for posting this. I'm having the fraxel treatment done mid-April and have been rather scared about the whole idea...
  9. I am scheduled to have the CO2 Fraxel laser treatment done on April 1th. I have been dealing with horribile scarring on my cheeks (from rosacea, according to my dermatoligist) due to a reaction to a vaccination, since May of last year... After taking medication to tame the rosacea and still using a topical, all that is basically left is scarring even though I never picked at any of the bumps. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the CO2 Fraxel Laser treatment done for scarring and if you c
  10. I am setting up an appt with a plastic surgeon next week, to have the CO2 Fraxel Laser treatment done on my face (towards the beginning of April). I have been dealing with horribile scarring on my cheeks (from rosacea, according to my dermatoligist) due to a reaction to a vaccination, since May of last year... After taking medication to tame the rosacea and still using a topical, all that is basically left is scarring even though I never picked at any of the bumps. I do have some bumps still on
  11. It was recommended to me to try dermablend to cover up the rosace and subsequent bumps that have come with it. I was also directed to an Origins Makeup line... does anyone have any advice on what type of makeup to use, the line and/or powder/liquid makeup?? I have rather sensitve, dry skin so it's somewhat tricky
  12. I had a reaction to an innoculation, causing my face to breakout with what I perceived to be zits... I went to the derm and they determined that it was a severe case of Rosacea (it runs in the family). I went on pills and have a topical... After 2 cycles with the pills I've seen a huge, huge difference in my skin. The redness is still there, but I'm ok with that. Unfortunately, there is some scarring and the derm recommended going to see a plastic surgeon to help with the scarring. I still have
  13. I have sone serious scarring on my cheeks due to acne brought on as a side effect to an shot I received mid part of last year... I am on a topical/antibiotic regiment to clear up the acne, however there is still some major redness and scarring by no fault of my own. My doctor recommended these two treatments and I'm wondering if anyone could offer insight to either procedure. I'm really wanting to get something done that is relatively painless, but also a relatively fast 'fix' that won't drag ou
  14. I've been on a regimen of Oracea pills, 40 mg, once a day and Clyndamicin topical twice a day for a little over a month. My doctor didn't specify but I'm wondering how long I should take the antibiotics? The topical I'm fine using forever, but the pills freak me out a bit as I'm sure there could be side effects. I've seen a huge difference in my acne/rosacea since starting the regimen but the antibiotics are causing other issues (Yeast infections) and I'd like to cease use asap. The doctor recom
  15. I started a new regimen a little over a month ago, taking Oracea (40 mg) once a day and applying a Clyndamicin gel 2-4 x's a day. I have seen some great results, although I do have some scarring which I hope to take care of in the next few months through a laser procedure. The reason why I am posting: due to the use of the Oracea pills over the last month I developed a rather unpleasant yeast infection. I went to the gyno office and they gave me medication for it, but said that if I decided to s
