Eh-not Convinced - New Jersey

I'm very concerned with damaging my face so this...

i'm very concerned with damaging my face so this decision was not taken lightly, it was after much reading, research and continuous rosacea outbreaks that i even thought about doing this. i called them few times and they were actually rude on the phone believe it or not but i went on 2 seperate consultations and thought this woman was just as good as the dr who was charging twice as much. i dont like that they tell you you have to buy 4 ahead of time, which after talking to the manager he is letting me pay as i go because i'm a scaredy cat :) i had it done last night and it was a stinging pain for a hot second each time and that was it, i was not red when i left and i thought i would look sunburned so i was grateful for that but then concerned that it wasnt strong enough and i was wasting my money. today i woke up and its very blothchy and my sun damage and few broken caps are still very noticeable, i am debating to even go back for antoher treatment. i will wait and see how it looks in few days, hope it prgressivley gets more even toned.

Thanks for posting a picture so we could see how your skin is looking. I'm glad the manager agreed to let you pay as you go - good negotiation skills girl!!

Keep us posted on what you are seeing!

really?????? do tell please? i was going to go back in a month for the 2nd one since i woke up today and felt my skin looked tighter although still blotchy........and being im allergic to sulfa drugs the derm told me i cant take anything to stop the small white and red bumps that i wake up with sometimes and that the antibiotics is the only thing that keeps it at bay......

I am a believer that topicals are safer than laser and light treatments on the skin. I don't even tout laser hair removal. You can click on my name and go read my review of IPL, and then you'll have a better understanding of why I am not happy with the results. I understand that rosacea is difficult to treat and many do turn to IPL or other invasive treatments but the caution is that you could end up with more problems than you started out with if the treatment burns your dermis. And they are hot enough to burn the dermis. And the subcutaneous layers of skin can't regenerate.

the girl who did it was nice and caring, the manager was nice, but alittle pushy to buy more and the receptionist was a complete bitch, just sayin.........
