April 2, 2013
Asked By:robben93

Hello, I'm a 19 y/o man with a permanent red skin (cheeks & nose), it started when i was 15-16. It gets intens red by triggers like cold/hot envoirements or when i blush. It's so ugly and i feel ashame.. Tried so many cremes, nothing works. Also had 2 IPL sessions and ND:YAG laser, not even helped 1%. I'm disappointed and I feel sad cause it ruins my life.. Which options do I still have? PDL? I don't expect a perfect skin, but a 50% reduce would be great! Thanks in advance!
