I would do Smoothbeam plus Vitalize peels in many of those cases. Right now I think the very best seems to be Levulan with VBeam. Even a DUSA representative admitted to me at a laser conference last year that the VBeam or other pulsed dye lasers are better than BLU-U for activation of Levulan. That is p
  7. I am sorry that I am not on the board as much as I would like to be. I am extremely busy and have a hard time keeping up with my day to day responsibilities. I did want to post some great results of a patient who has struggled with acne for about 5 years. She did Accutane and it failed to work on her. She had had this cyst on her cheek for a couple of years. This photo was taken 2 months after her SECOND Photodynamic Therapy treatment with VBeam. We did her THIRD treatment the day this was ta
