Pulsed Dye Laser vs IPL for Rosacea
Recently, I went to the doctor because I suspected I had Rosacea. He said it looks like I have a mild version (face is pink and break out frequently). He prescribed metronidazole (10days) and metrogel. I've had two Vi Peels and two IPLs in the past. I'm considering getting IPL again for the spider veins on my face and to improve rosacea but after reading some stories and seeing pics of sagging skin and burn marks, I'm really scared. Is more downtime required with the laser? Does Pulsed dye laser have similar side effects as the IPL? Thanks for your input.
