  1. do you have any personal experience with this sort of treatment, does it actually remove the capillaries? In my case the IPL didn't do much.
  2. thank you for responding! I've done some extensive research and found the following useful tips: (the * indicates that my lifestyle has been breaking with the rule) no smoking no alcohol * no high intensity workout * always use sunscreen * no caffeine * avoid extreme temperatures and cold winds thus, there are things that I, and probably you, can do to lower the risk. Horse chesnut and grape seed extract are regarded as good remedies, I found and ordered a creme called Derma E Clear Vein Cr
  3. I'm struggling with broken capillaries and have been going through IPL treatment to have them removed and I need to find a good regimen that will prevent new capilaries from breaking. Apart from applying sunscreen, protecting your face from extreme temperatures and being gentle with your skin what can you do? I've found a website that recommends a regimen consisting of creams (day and night) that should prevent capillaries from breaking by strengthening the walls of the veins. See this link: Bro
  4. It seems that most people that have undergone laser treatment for their broken capillaries complain that they reappear, maybe these people didn't take any measures to try and prevent new broken capillaries from forming (the laser treatment doesn't remove the cause of the broken capillaries) or maybe they did try to prevent them but was unsuccessful in doing so. Anyway I would like to hear from these people. It's all very discouraging, maybe there's no permanent cure at all! I would like to hea

  6. Hi, yesterday I had my nose treated with IPL to remove some broken capillaries, it's still a bit red and swollen but seems to be healing fine. I was wondering if there's anything I should be aware of post op (apart from remembering to use sunblock). When can I start exercising? How about alcohol? I've been using BP on my nose, is that a bad idea while my skin is healing? regards Jimmy
  7. I've been using bp on my nose for the last year or so, and it has effectively cleared up all my acne. During this period I have noticed an increasing amount of broken capillaries on my nose and i suspect that it has something to do with the bp (since the bp peels your skin and makes it more vulnerable). How do I stop these broken capillaries form forming, should I stop using BP, and if so what alternative cleansers can I use? What about moisturizers? (i'm currently using a moisturizer that has a
  8. hi everybody, 6 months ago I was treated with the N-Lite laser to battle my acne, it turned out to be a big mistake. (my acne is now gone but thanks to BP not N-Lite) It had a lot of negative effects including scarring and hyperpigmentation. My worst problem though is a 1x1 inch area on my left cheek, right by the nose, where the skin looks kind of hollow. It looks like some of the collagen below the surface has sort of melted away and it makes the skin look dark or hollow if that makes any sen
  9. girlie -- I need to use BP otherwise I'll breakout real bad. I haven't experienced much inflamation in connection with the BP so I think it's best to keep using it to avoid more acne in the scarred area. While browsing through previous posts I've found that copper peptides seems to be most appropiate for my condition and so I've purchased the CP Serum & Exfol Serum from Skin Biology. However I'm also applying BP (I follow Dan's Regimen), is that a problem? If not, then in what order should
  10. thank you for replying so soon, I really hope the indentations will improve in time (though right now they are getting increasingly visible every day). I'm starting to think that I may have had the indentations all along, I simply can't believe that the N-Lite laser could cause so much damage. Do you know of any cream that might improve the appearence of the indentations? I agree with all of you that the N-Lite laser is total crap, it's not a solution, even if it works the effect only lasts a
  11. Please read my experience with the N-Lite laser, I need your help! I was suffering from moderate acne and so my doctor suggested a treatment with the N-Lite laser. On December 14 2006 I had my first session and on january 18 2007 I had my second. During that period I applied Redap gel (similar to BP) to my skin and during the first month I was on Tetracycline (I quit the pills because the acne had disappeared by then) Initially everything was fine and dandy, no more acne, but sometime during fe
  12. I recently went through two N-Lite sessions for my acne. Sadly this resulted in hyperpigmentation. I have one area near my left eye that has turned grey and an aera on my nose that has turned red/brown. A couple of times in the past I've battled with red marks caused by acne and on both occasions the red marks took about a year to fade away. I would like to know whether I can expect the same turnover time for these new hyperpigmentation spots, or if it takes longer when they are caused by a las
