I did the V Beam to treat rosascea on my nose and inner cheek area as well as a few broken caps.

Pros: Not very painful

Cons: Major bruising, actually look worse right now.

I have very obvious bruising from the V Beam treatment I had on 5/8/09- looks like chicken pox on my nose & inner cheek area. When can I expect to see improvement?

Kelly, did V beam help your rosacea?  One tip I used to help the brusing was to take arnica pills (Boiron brand from a pharmacy) before and for a few days after.  As you can see from the photos on my review, I looked really beat up for a week but now I feel much better than pre-treatment and my face no longer flushes painfully.

I am wondering why your treatment was so "cheap"? (Only $150) I would be curious to know if you went to a real experienced dermatologist who is a laser specialist or just spa technician. Sometimes we get what we pay for.
